I AM DV8 part 2 took place on 7th July at Stratford Circus.
It was the biggest event DV8 has done. We took over the whole Stratford Circus for the day.
DV8’s event management class had been training and preparing for this day, and it was a success. All the tickets were sold out.
The whole event was a big success to me but the things that I am proud of is what a great event we put on and I am proud of every one in the team without them we would of not have had a wonderful event. Another thing I am proud of is my hosting, it was a big step for me and I think I did great.
All the team was jumping and dancing in the wings to the great talent that was on our stage that night. I felt an adrenalin rush going through my body. I was sadly upset that it finished.
It was an emotional moment when the whole team stood up on stage for the closing speech. I was overwhelmed. Tears were soon falling from my eyes. I couldn’t believe it was all over. We hadn’t just become a class we have become a family.
I am sad to be leaving my team and I will definitely be working with them in the future. I am going to miss them but we will always have some great memories.
One again I would like to say a big thank you to Fusion and Teph because without them I would not be progressing to level 3 apprenticeship doing live events with DV8.
As Malcolm X used to say, the future belongs to those who prepare for it today.
So keep locked in and ill keep you updated about my new success.
Bye for now Danielle Stevens.
The I AM DV8 part 2 had there 1st rehearsals on 22nd of June, it was one emotional rehearsals as there was so much great artists showing us what they are made off.
One artist called Hadija aka Dija Doll did a wonderful performance with her very own song, She wrote it about her cousin who she sadly misses. Hadija wrote the song so it could relate to people who have lost someone close to them or has broken up with their partner. The song touched me so much it made me cry as I can relate to the words of the song.
People watch out for her and the song when its out and I will update everyone with the name of the song as soon as I find out…………
I have been with DV8 training since 2010, doing Music and Business and then moving on the Event management level 1 and 2.
Since being with DV8 I have found what I love and passionate about and what I would like to do which is to work in the music industry as an A&R or as a live music event manager.
Now that I am coming to the end of my level 2 in Event Management I have applied for the DV8 Live event and Promotion Apprenticeship and I have successfully got a placement. They were impressed with all the skills and experience I have had already and they were shocked how passionate I am about putting on events.
I start in July/August and I cant wait. I am doing what I love and now I can put my skills and previous experience to the test. Now I will be in college one day a week and then 4 days in the music and events industry. So make sure you keep on checking my tumblr to read my updates about my new career.
I am so Happy :D …………
On Monday 4th June I was invited down to the Queens Diamond Jubilee Concert that was held outside Buckingham Palace.
The night was full of exciting acts and performances such as Shirley Bassey, Alfie Boe, Jools Holland, Jessie J, JLS, Elton John, Tom Jones, Lang Lang, Annie Lennox, Madness, Paul McCartney, Kylie Minogue, Cliff Richard, Ed Sheeran and Stevie Wonder.
It was wonderful and also one of my highlights of the night to see Stevie Wonder who is one of my music heros perform, I never thought I would get a chance to see him.
A 90’s band called Madness done a wonderful and outstanding performance on top of Buckingham Palace with flashing lights and moving images projected on to the Palace.
Another great performance was the number one Queen’s Jubilee single called “Sing” with was performed by features 210 musicians from the Commonwealth including the African Children’s Choir, Royal Solomon Islands Police Force Band, Slum Drummers from Kenya’s Kibera slum, Aboriginal guitarist Gurrumul and the Military Wives choir. Gary Barlow was the one who put this together.
Overall I had a great night and a wonderful experience, this is a once in a life time thing and I feel so glad that I was a part of it.
Pap 29th was a big success. It was the day DV8 event team put on a press party for the rest of the DV8 staff and students.
We had wonderful artists sharing their talent, one of the wonderful talents that blew everyone away was and young girl called Luciee. Her voice shocked everyone as she is only 15 years old and has a voice of a grown woman. The DV8 events team is very happy and excited to have her on our stage on 7th July 2012.
Pap 29th had a great turn out and everyone enjoyed themselves.
EVERYONE REMEMBER 7th JULY 2012 IT’S GOING TO BE THE BIGGEST FESTIVAL DV8 HAS PUT ON……………
