Event Details

Dear friends I've been looking into doing something for charity and have seen that Cancer Research offer a chance to get fit with a twist.

I love doing the boxercise when I get my little ass down to workout sessions so am seriously considering joining the 8 week training course which leads to a ... GULP... wait for it... boxing fight!

Yes, that's right. Well, I did Judo for 12 years and internationally for a couple so shouldn't be scared but somehow this is a hugely scary prospect as that was more than 20 years ago when I was good!

I'd have to do the fight or let someone down (which I hate doing).

I'd have to choose entrance music as i'm escorted in. What about Time To Say Goodbye, Conte Parti Ro as it was as the theme song for the final match of boxer Henry Maske (then the light-heavyweight champion of the International Boxing Federation) or is that not cool enough.

And I have to come up with a name to go on my vest. I'm just AneesaDiva really! I mean, it has to include my surname so I'd be something like 'Aneesa The ..... Chaudhry'

TICKETS!!!! So, I have tickets so if you'd like to buy one and come please let me know asap and i'll give you yours. If you'd like to support the cause you can still buy one but give your ticket to someone else to watch me being whacked to the ground! Whilst I love boxing at bootcamp i'm not so keen on the actual fighting bit but it's for a great cause and puts me totally out of my comfort zone.

The things I'm particularly sh***ing myself are the bit where I get a black eye, a possible broken nose and my lights get knocked out...all of which are quite likely apparently!! So, to make it more appealing and maybe even fun (is that possible?!), i'm going to share some of this crazy adventure with you.

Here's what you can do to support Cancer Research through my nutty experience: 1) Buy a ticket from me asap. I have 20 to sell. They're £20 and you can come along to watch the whole thing in real life on 11th Dec at the Grand. Gulp! OMG! or just buy one to support the charity

2) Sponsor me via my justgivingpage which i'll set up soon.

3) Pick some fun music you think I should walk in with. Best one gets chosen and this is one of the fun things right!

4) Come up with a name for me. The winning vote will go on my vest! This is the second fun thing so just do it!

Not much more to say except it's a great cause and I know too many people who have suffered or died at the hand of cancer. I'm scared silly but going to see how I go with the training and that little bit at the end, the fighting bit! Eeek!

Love from AneesaDiva x

Aneesa Chaudhry

“Aneesa Chaudhry is a force of nature and a force to be reckoned with. Her voice is extraordinary in so many senses, range, tone, style proving that this is not simply a voice of fashion, and there are plenty of those around, but a real voice full of real musical talent and skill – weapon quality! An evening of song with her is a white knuckle ride of styles and musical genre – ballads, jazz classics, rock, swing, Asian fusion, Fascinating as this is, and amazing value at the price, it does leave your head in a spin. She gave us a striking rendition of My Funny Valentine that was spine tinglingly good, Aneesa is a pure talent, a chameleon chanteuse – and she looks great too, cheekily flirting with her audience and winning us over every minute of the way. When a gig is this good it would bland and dull to simply say that Aneesa Chaudhry is bloody brilliant!” - Andrew Kay, The Latest (Dec 07, 2014)

“Aneesa Chaudhry showed the audience exactly how accomplished a musician, singer and performer she is. The Brunswick was packed to the rafters. I could have listened to her sing all night. She is the full package, sassy & engaging. The haunting Tera Chera was the highlight showing off her range & the ethereal tone quality of her voice in the upper register. Guappa Chica presented her fun side while Papernut demonstrated the huge range of her voice. Vocally she was quite extraordinary during this number considering this was live and the possibilities of studio tricks less possible. I love a performer who takes risks not only with their performance but also with the arrangements. She made My Funny Valentine her own & challenged both singer and listener to the limits. It was a triumph! Her voice is secure over her complete register, while her ability to bend notes gives a wonderful Eastern flavour. Her articulation is drilled down & precise. You can understand every word she sings” - James Ledward, GScene (Dec 10, 2014)

"What a sensational lunchtime jazz session from Aneesa Chaudhry at the Summertown Wine Cafe yesterday! My goodness the girl has an amazing range. She titallated us with Van Morison's Moondance before nailing Joni Mitchell's 'Both Sides Now' goosebumps and swelling tear ducts all-round. Oxford Jazz Festival

Aneesa brings a great vibe (and a crowd) to her gigs. She has an original take on performing and brings a little old school glamour to her live shows. Prepare to be entertained as she seamlessly navigates through classics and new material. An excellent addition to any serious music event billing. SAM SUTTON, GINGLIK, London

Ealing Jazz Festival, July 2008  ‘An original Punjabi take on the jazz tradition supported by some of the best Latin musicians, music full of light, the subtleness of jazz, and a commitment to the vitality of performance’. Pete Watson, Crypt Stage Director

Isle of White International Jazz Divas Festival  ‘Aneesa Chaudhry wowed the audience at the Jazz Festival fringe with her unique approach to jazz, spicing things up nicely with exotic eastern flavours, both vocally and percussively, along with well known classics, all delivered with a dash of divadom and a sprinkle of stardust’ Mick Smith, Director, Quay Arts

‘Aneesa Chaudhry’s sets in the Birmingham Jazz Festival were real stand-out occasions. Very musical, pretty unusual, and totally absorbing’. Jim Simpson, Festival Director

Ian Shaw, 2004 BBC Jazz Vocalist, Royal National Theatre Music Pitch
