WIF&E is a platform for creatives to network, share stories and support each other in their craft. Due to a large number of our members out of work due to the pandemic, WIF&E has decided to promote them on this platform. As an organisation we also make the booking process more personal by giving the creative a chance to blog on the website, this enables employers to find out more about the person that they wish to hire. WIF&E links the creator with the employer so that the fee can be negotiated via our members and not through WIF&E. A fee of 10% will be taken from any job that is booked through WIF&E, this is to pay for the time and website upkeep.

At 13 I was awarded a golden scholarship at the British National Theatre School for singing, dance and acting.
I was in a band at 16 as the only female vocalist performing original material and then went on to become a solo singer doing cabaret and solo gigs in countries including Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Spain. I now do the same thing in London. I have worked in recording studios on many occasions, Capital Radio hired me for their jingles when I was 17 and have sung on various tracks released and on on white label.
As a session singer, I have, on several occasions, recorded original material with top producers responsible for number one albums ie Gabrielle and Angie Brown.
Currently I perform at weddings and corporate events and last year various hotels in Bahrain and Philadelphia and was nominated Best Female Solo act at the South East Entertainment Awards. (Didn’t go ahead due to COVID 19)
I am currently working on my own lyrics & sound engineering so I can make my first music video for promo. I am also setting up my own singing class as I love teaching how to sing esp children .
I connected with Cookie Greenwood through social media in 2019 & she attended a few of my gigs. We have become good friends.
When she told me she was going into partnership with Carla & create an organisation for women in film & entertainment I was so happy for her as I know how resented she is in photography & passionate about connecting with people in the film & entertainment industry.
I can see that WIF&E will be Beneficial for a lot of people all over the world can come together and network. I’m looking forward in being a part of their journey.
