FRANZ HEPBURN ENTERTAINS ELMWOOD

20 July 2017

Residents at Elmwood were excited to welcome their latest special guest into the home, singer Franz Hepburn. Franz performed here last year and residents remembered him as soon as he started singing. A finalist on Channel 4’s award winning Operatunity programme in 2003, Franz impressed with his range of vocal skills without the use of a microphone!

Franz sang popular songs by Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra as well as songs made famous by classic movies such as The Sound of Music. One resident compared him to the American bass singer from the recent past, Paul Robeson. Franz also conducted a quiz about Queen Elizabeth II which everybody found really interesting.

It was a lovely afternoon for everyone to enjoy and the feedback we received from residents and relatives was fantastic!
