Soulful sounds at Relay

IMMERSE yourself in the breathtakingly beautiful sounds of vocal quartet Velour tonight as they headline a night of inspiring entertainment at the 2018 Grafton Relay for Life.

Passionate vocalist and artistic director Kate Joseph put the group together two years ago after a search for women who were excited and daring enough to create original music for contemporary acappella.

They are friends, wives, mothers and talented vocalists who love, support and encourage each other in life and music.

"When you live in a community like Grafton, the degrees of separation seem to get smaller,” Ms Joseph said.

"It's impossible not to know of someone, or someone's family, affected by cancer.”

The entertainment throughout the day at Jabour Park, South Grafton, will also feature an array of colourful performers including dance troupe Studio 1, local singer Maddy Ellem, Grafton High's "Best Hits” and rock 'n' roll dancers Big River Rockers who are sure to get the toes tapping.

They are all followed by the uplifting Hope Ceremony at 8pm, African drumming, the soulful sounds of Velour and then the judging of the popular Miss Relay competition at 10pm.
