About Katie Rose

 Described by The Guardian as a 'fine singer' and fROOTs Magazine as an 'eye and ear opener',   Katie Rose loves singing and helping people sing. 
I had my first experiences of the power of the voice whilst singing in churches and, at the age of 15, felt a strong calling to use my voice as a tool of transformation for others and myself. I was fortunate to be born into a musical family, with plenty of singing round the piano. My grandmother was deaf and my Grandfather was a hearing child of deaf parents who became a Pastor for the deaf, directing signed plays and choirs. So I grew up surrounded by people who talked – and sang - on their hands and see conducting as a direct legacy.
 

These early experiences embedded a commitment to work inclusively and sensitively with the vast diversity of needs and abilities in community. I started working with children with special needs in my teens and later ran a holistic therapy practice adults in residential care. I repeatedly witnessed the power of touch and music to connect and communicate with those who could not access conventional forms of voice and expression. 

Having immersed myself in the arts and holistic therapies, I began working with individuals in 2000 and leading singing groups in 2002. With a love of vocal harmony, it was a natural progression to start leading community choirs with people of diverse backgrounds in settings including hospitals, hospices and carers centres. I now co-direct, Sing for Water, a mass choral fundraising event for WaterAid which embodies my conviction that singing is transformational – for both the singer and the wider world. 

Having discovered so much wonderful music along the way, I released three albums interweaving music from global traditions with original compositions. I love broadcasting the good news about singing and have written and featured in local and international media. I have been honoured to work with many inspirational artists and organisations on projects aiming to bring the rejuvenating magic of music to our hearts, homes, streets and communities.

I am honoured to daily experience and witness the tangible and meaningful change singing brings, adding sparkle and wow factor to our lives - Come and sing!
