Tribute from family of 16
year old Lewis Dunne
THE family of 16 year old, Lewis Dunne, who died on
Sunday,15 November following a shooting incident in the Eldonian Village,
Vauxhall, have paid tribute to him.
Mum Gemma, dad Steven and sisters Ashley and Yasmin said:- "He was the
love of our life, the bond that held our family together. Most people wait years
to find their soul mate but the day our Lewis was born was the day our hearts
and souls were complete. He was so kind and gentle, always touching, kissing and
giving hugs out. He had so much love to give and it was truly a luxury to feel.
Our baby, our Lewis, our blessing. We have been sat here trying to find the
words to describe the love of our lives. But the fact is we can't. All the
adjectives ring hollow because they don't do justice to who Lewis truly was.
Lewis was his own person, he was sure of himself and knew who he was. He had
values that weren't compromised by anything. He was an individual. He loved
everyone, he loved peace and would sit and talk for hours on end, reflecting on
the wonders of life. He was deep and he was sensitive. He was not just
academically smart, he was wise. Wiser than most adults in fact. No matter what
we, his family, write it doesn't have the power to ring through the honest truth
of how beautiful Lewis was and that's what we want people to know; how beautiful
Lewis was and is. He was goodness and it felt safe to hold him in our arms. The
world has been robbed of our beautiful baby boy who really made people's lives
magic and who had the power to do something great in this world. He brought
love, he gave love, he was and is love. Our family is broken. Please, if anyone
knows anything about what happened to Lew, our gorgeous, handsome baby boy, come
forward. He did not deserve this."

Magic of Motown UK Tour
heads to Southport
JUST in case you did not know, on Saturday, 28 November 2015,
the fantastic show:- 'Magic of Motown' will be onstage at
Southport Theatre, Promenade, Southport.
Celebrating 50 years of UK number 1 hit
singles, the Magic of Motown brings its '2015 Reach Out® Tour'
is not to be missed... With fantastic songs like:- 'Stop in the Name of Love',
'I Can't Help Myself', 'Tracks of My Tears' and
'It's the Same Old Song' rocketed artists like the Supremes, The Four
Tops, and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles to the top of the singles charts
in 1965, says show producer Michael Taylor. "Incredibly, 100 more No1s
followed worldwide. The Magic of Motown 2015 Reach
Out Tour brings to the stage 36 of these chart toppers back to back in 1
critically acclaimed production."
Direct from the USA, The Magic of Motown promises 5 star performances
that will authentically revive the style and sophistication of everyone's
favourite musical legends. "This year we're proud to announce that the show will include more
number one hits than ever before." says Michael.
Classic hits from the Temptations, Four Tops, Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder,
Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie and The Supremes are packed into the two-hour
spectacular. "As well as dazzling dance moves and
glittering costumes galore, the elusive, authentic sound is recreated by our
incredible band." says Michael.
The group, especially put together for the show, celebrate their
together on this tour. "In their capable hands, you can
guarantee that the score will be, with a nod to the great Stevie Wonder;
uptight; alright and out of sight!" says Michael,
In 1965 Diana Ross and the Supremes, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles,
Stevie Wonder and the Temptations crossed the Atlantic for a UK-wide tour of
ABC, Odeon and Gaumont theatres which began the process of the artistes
becoming musical phenomena on these shores.
To mark the occasion, The Magic of Motown brings an all-new production for
2015 to the stage with a 100 date nationwide tour.
Male lead in the show Andre Lejaune promises many new numbers added to the
show's already hit packed score. "Come and celebrate 50 years of number one hits.
With the Reach Out 2015 Tour, the magic of Motown is truly coming to
Town." says Michael.
If you do not know what the show is all about, the Magic of Motown revives all time favourites like:-
'Stop in the Name of
Love'; 'Dancing in the Street'; 'My Guy';
'Ain't No Mountain High Enough'; 'This Old
Heart of Mine'; 'I Heard it Through the Grapevine';
'Endless Love'; 'All Night
Long'; 'Heatwave'; 'I'm Coming Out';
'Why Do Fools Fall in Love'; 'Get Ready'; 'Ain't
Too Proud to Beg'; 'My Girl'; 'I Want You Back';
'I'll Be There'; 'Uptight
(Everything's Alright)'; 'How Sweet it Is' and of course
"60's classics give way to present day masterpieces from Lionel
Richie and Diana Ross. Sadly, many of the original singing legends are either no longer with us or
no longer touring. The Magic of Motown is the nearest you'll get to
authentically capturing their incredible musical legacy in a live show. Our
young cast is able to reflect the exuberance and excitement of these songs
as they were originally performed." says show producer Michael Taylor.
Equal care is taken to reproduce the
original look of the stars on stage. It was not just the music that set them
apart from all other hit singers of the time. For mass market appeal,
artistes' images were carefully controlled from dress and choreography,
right down to their manners.
Michael says:- "Thus we've employed the services of top costume
designer Claire Davis to create a fabulous selection of colourful costumes
for the cast while leading man Andre Lejaune is responsible for
choreographing the cast to perform the intricate dance moves for which
Motown stars were famous."
With the production presenting so many shows this coming year, Michael says
there will be:- "nowhere to run, nowhere to hide" to keep you
away from the Magic of Motown in 2015.
