A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder star, Lisa O’Hare is to release a charity single written by composers Daniel and Laura Curtis.
The new song, ‘All Your Dreams’, will be released in September with all profits going to the charity, St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The charity aims to ensure every child suffering from cancer, irrespective of economic status, receives the best chance of surviving the disease and leading a full, healthy, and happy life.
The new song, ‘All Your Dreams’ is a lullaby and holds special significance for both Lisa, who is currently expecting the birth of her first child due in September, and the composers, Daniel and Laura Curtis, who recently welcomed their first child, William James Colin Curtis, into their lives on the 7th June 2015.
Lisa O’Hare began her career as an English stage actress and has played both Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins on the West End and UK stage. She more recently appeared in several prime-time American television shows on TNT, ABC, and NBC. In 2011, she played Sally Bowles in Cabaret for the Reprise Theatre Company at the Freud Playhouse. She won the LA Drama Critics Circle Award for Lead Performance. Lisa originated the role of Sibella Hallward, in Broadway’s Tony Award Winning Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.
When asked about working with Lisa, Daniel said, ‘It has been a real pleasure working with Lisa. She has one of those rare, enchanting voices that draw you in from the moment you hear her singing. I have seen Lisa perform the title roles in My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins and have wanted to work with her ever since. The song is very special to us and we cannot wait for everyone to hear it.’
Daniel and Laura Curtis, whose last album ‘Love on 42nd Street’ featuring artists such as: Lea Salonga, Sierra Boggess, Samantha Barks, and Ramin Karimloo, topped the iTunes Vocal Chart and the Amazon Broadway Chart. The album was followed up by the chart topping singles ‘When You Smile’ featuring Laura Osnes and ‘Find the Best of Me’ featuring Cheyenne Jackson.
Daniel and Laura are moving their attention towards writing for the film and television industry and hope to have some exciting news to announce in the coming months. They recently released a 13 minute musical concept of the Disney/Pixar film Ratatouille which has just passed 100,000 views and can be seen here:
