"Having attended the rehearsals at Parkside church and experienced the start and the friendly atmosphere along with the warmth of fellowship I knew that the tribute concert was on safe ground and had expected it to be good.On Sunday night at Leeds town hall my expectations were surpassed.The programme was well thought out by the sequence of numbers all of which were sung with feeling and emotion and rather overwhelming at times . As john often said "You are all Stars " . The show was delivered to a professional standard.
