Affectionately named 'The People's Soprano' by fans, colleagues and the media, singer-songwriter Rebecca Newman is one of the most exciting classical-crossover acts the UK has seen for a long time! As an independent artist she has already sold over 15,000 albums, headlined her own twenty date UK tour, appeared on ITV1, BBC1 and BBC Radio, sung the national anthems live on TV for several international televised sporting events and shared the stage with stars like Russell Watson and Aled Jones.
Her beautiful voice, down to earth nature and her commitment to her charitable causes has won the hearts of many and her eagerly anticipated new album, called 'Dare to Dream' is named after her own song that embodies the spirit of her musical career. She has again teamed up with classical music legends James Fitzpatrick for the orchestral sessions - producer to opera and TV star Lesley Garrett - and Paul Bateman - musical director to international star Sarah Brightman - after working with them for her charity single release in November 2012. She is recording with the fantastic producer Gareth Williams, who has worked on recordings for many of the big stars, including Katherine Jenkins and the Classical Brit Award Winners 'Blake', who have recorded a special collaboration with Rebecca for the album.
Rebecca is currently planning the release of her album, due out in September, and undertaking some ambitious community music projects to bring her original songs to a wider audience.
