All good things come to an end. I have absolutely loved being a coach on The Voice of Ireland. What an amazing show! The first two seasons were quite the roller coaster ride – we took it from concept stage to the number one television program in the country and I could not be more proud.
I am very excited to be releasing my new album The Same Sun, there are a lot of promotional activities scheduled and I am embarking on a world tour very soon, so unfortunately, I cannot be with you all this season – I wish everyone involved good luck and I look forward to seeing you all again in the future.
P.S. I will most sincerely miss kicking Kian Egans ass! And nodding off to Bressie’s soliloquies – Ha!
The second season of The Voice has come to an end so it’s time for a little look back at what happened.
It was a jolly ride and talent on TEAM SHARON was great. Sharon was extremely sad that John never made it to the final. (You can follow him on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook). Toward to end of season we also had the opportunity to see a WORLD TV PREMIERE of Sharon’s new song “We could be lovers”.
Sharon recently traveled to Tanzania as part of Oxfam’s “Ending Poverty Starts With Women” campaign.
Sharon got to see first hand how the ‘We Can’ campaign which asks people to change their behaviours and attitudes towards domestic violence, is having an amazing impact.
Violence against women is widespread in Tanzania.
Women are more likely to die from violence by men than from cancer, malaria, traffic accidents and war combined.
1 in every 3 women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. This abuse can lock them into poverty.
It’s a violation of human rights and is preventing societies from prospering.
By supporting women to protect themselves from violence and helping communities to understand that it’s not right, we stand a better chance of fighting poverty.
To date, the campaign has been able to mobilize more than 350,000 Change Makers in Tanzania – people who pledge to change violent behaviour and speak out against domestic violence.
When women and men are treated equally, everyone benefits.
