This weekly feature gives us a little insight into The Abbey staff, and our next Desert Island Disc ‘castaway’ is Laura McCabe, External Relations Admin Assistant.
Proud Mary – Tina Turner
I am possessed with the spirit of Tina when I hear this song and I know when I hear it, I will get a great burst of energy; I love how powerful it is, and it tells a great story
This is me – The Greatest Showman
Something takes over my soul and body when I hear this song, it is so powerful and uplifting
Mr Brightside – The Killers
I know this song will get me up and dancing around my desert island
I wanna dance with somebody – Whitney Houston
I have such great memories of this song, dancing and screaming my heart out to it when I am with friends and family
Rise Up – Andra Day
This song makes me think I am a great singer – not sure everyone else would agree but this song is so inspiring and I know it would uplift me
Tears dry on their own – Amy Winehouse
Amy was such a great soul and her tone in her singing is just mesmerising
Treasure – Bruno Mars
This song is so upbeat and I have such great memories dancing around with my sisters to this song
Somebody to love – Queen
Freddie Mercury’s voice is so unique and he has such an amazing vocal range, I just love this song
At last – Etta James
This song is just dreamy and Etta’s voice is like luxurious velvet, ironic though because my lonely days will certainly not be over if I am stuck on a desert island
Can the whole Harry Potter collection count? They are one story after all! I have loved the Harry Potter books since they came out. I get so much joy reading them and I am a huge fan!
Drawing pad and coloured pens, so I could recreate my memories and express how I am feeling at the time.
