Update: GISF, Debut Single & Music Video Release!12:17 AM
I was in Gibraltar at the weekend for the Gibraltar International Song Festival (GISF), as my debut single, 'Efron Style' was selected as one of the top 14 songs out of over 700 entries from around the world! I was so unbelievably excited and the lead up to it was jam packed with rehearsals... It's mad to think that it's all over now after months of preparation.
I had such a magical weekend and I'm thrilled to say that my song, 'Efron Style' was awarded 3rd Prize!! Crazy, right?! See all of my travel updates on my instagram here. I have worked so, so hard these past few months so I felt so humbled to come away with a prize, especially considering that the standard of entries was so high. I was blown away by the sheer amount of messages of support I received and would like to thank you all so much!! You have no idea how much it means to me. <3
The next few weeks are going to be just as action-packed in the follow up, with the release of my single and music video, as well as my 18th birthday on June 5th!!! As I am getting busier I feel vlogging will be a great way of documenting my adventures, so I am going to start vlogging regularly from now on. Some of you have suggested this in the past but I was too nervous to do so, however I have decided to bite the bullet and go for it! But don't worry, I do plan on posting more outfits on here too!! :)
Shooting my music video was another crazy experience, which you will know about if you follow me on instagram @HannahHawkshaw. I am so thankful for the amazing team of people I was lucky enough to have supporting me and I simply can't wait to share it with you guys... I really hope you like it. I documented the whole thing and I will be editing it all together and sharing it with you in the coming weeks, following the release of 'Efron Style'. So expect lots of exciting behind the scenes photos and videos!!! :D
Performing 'Efron Style' live for the first time in Gibraltar was a real milestone for me. For so long I have been singing cover versions so to actually be up on stage in front of a wonderful audience performing my own music was incredible. I started writing the song when I was about 12 years old so it's been a long time coming... I can't wait for you all to hear it!!
I have also just launched my official website, HannahHawkshaw.com. I'm so thrilled to finally have a space on the internet devoted to my music as this is a huge part of my life, but something I haven't really shared with you here. I took the time to create this hub so you can really get to know me and lots of more information will be on it soon, so I would love any feedback you may have on it.
I'm going to leave you now that I have quickly updated you on all the excitement that's been going on, so thank you for your endless support and enjoy the photos <3
Talk soon, H x
