Re: Chloe Agnew - new videos
The Irish newspaper The Independent
ran a story today about Miss Agnew and her family's plans for Christmas -- and also mentioned an exciting new recording project for Chloe.
Here's the link to the article:
And the text:
Adele King and daughters Chloe and Naomi Agnew
Adele: We'll all be home for Christmas, just about.
Chloe: I am over in the States doing promotions for Celtic Woman for our tour next year. And I am recording with an Italian tenor -- I have been asked to guest on his album.
Adele: I love Christmas.
Naomi: Christmas is a big deal in our house.
Adele: Mom is in charge of dinner, mainly, but I have to say they are both very good cooks. So, in fairness, it's a three-way effort. We share the jobs at the table. Cleaning up, maybe not that bit. Mother usually gets landed with that part.
We are very traditional in terms of food. We'll have turkey, ham, Brussels sprouts, roast potatoes and parsnips.
Naomi: She is an amazing cook. She is amazing at cakes and sugar craft. She's pretty talented.
Adele: Cooking for your family is something people take for granted and it turns into a chore. It shouldn't.
We are scaling back this Christmas. We are not buying loads of extraneous stuff just for the sake of it. We said we'd get sense, and only buy things that we like.
Chloe: We keep our stockings until Stephen's Day, so we've something to look forward to.
Adele: As the girls have got older, the stockings have got considerably more expensive. My girls don't do cheap make-up; they only like Chanel, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and the likes.
What we have done for the past few years, which is always a great pleasure, is we have a select few people over on Christmas morning, including my sister-in-law Brenda, who I like, and my three beautiful nieces, one of whom is my godchild. The girls are brilliant, they do gorgeous canapes -- shrimp with dips. I've done some amazing shortbread, covered with Santas and Snowmen, on sticks -- so they are lollipop biscuits.
How exciting! I wonder who that "Italian tenor" might be -- the one with whom Chloe will be recording?
I love this news because it means that Chloe will remain in the classical-music genre. Her voice is so lovely that she really should continue singing the most beautiful music ever composed -- the masterpieces of the classical repertoire.
Also, note the passage in the article about Chloe's favourite brands of make-up. She is a born model -- and I still hope that someday, some forward-thinking company will employ her as a celebrity plus-size model.
And just listen to all of the delicous food that's listed in the article! including "turkey, ham, Brussels sprouts, roast potatoes, parsnips" and for dessert "cakes and sugar craft." It's so wonderful to know that Chloe has a healthy appetite, and indulges herself freely for the holidays. She really is an ideal role model for young girls today.
