Cosmic Sparkle - The Singer:
Cosmic Sparkle™ is the registered professional name of Robyn Fudge, a vocalist, who performs hundreds of times annually in residential, nursing and care homes and is one of the busiest full time entertainers in this field.
She interacts with every member of her audience, both residents and carers alike, and tries to include everyone to sing along, dance or do simple hand or foot movements.
While her equipment is being set up, Robyn is also able to entertain using any available piano or keyboard at the venue. Performances are never strictly limited to the allocated time, unless requested by staff.
For mature audiences, music is sometimes one of the few gateways to recalling experiences and events in life and this becomes increasingly important with age.
Younger audiences with disabilities may have been precluded from the physical stimuli that others have experienced in their lives, and they now have the opportunity to experience a live performance of many of the songs they have previously only heard via Radio, TV, Record, CD or seen in movies.
