Introduction to the Band
All of us at VIVID have devoted our lives to producing and performing music, and together we make a formidable team. We consistently deliver a consummate performance, and with our repertoire of 100% classic party anthems we are guaranteed to delight audiences from all generations.
Amy Pearson is a Platinum selling singer/songwriter with top ten hits in the UK dance charts and the Australian singles charts. She’s used to the best company, having shared a stage with Burt Bacharach, Professor Green and Rudimental (check https://youtu.be/yjlN-UiiZBw ). She also has no fear of distinguished guests, having performed our National Anthem at the Tri Nations and the Ashes, and headlined shows for our troops abroad in South East Asia. Her obvious enjoyment in performing to a crowd never fails to delight and energise an audience.
Amy has special licence to perform a lot of our material, because she’s written with the producers responsible for it originally, including Rodney Jerkins (Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Whitney Houston), Jimmy Harry (Madonna, Kylie, Pink), and Shelley Peikin (Christina Aguilera, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry).
