Kate Nash Holds NYC Workshop, 3/3
Kate Nash, British singer, songwriter, and musician conducted a special workshop with inner-city youth on March 3, 2011, at the All Stars Project's performing arts and development center on W. 42nd Street. The workshop was part of an ongoing youth outreach initiative sponsored by Music Unites. Over 60 youth from inner-city communities throughout New York participated in the workshop by performing their own original songs and dialoguing with Kate Nash about how to develop their talents as performers, musicians, and songwriters. Kate Nash shared her life experiences as an artist and performed her hit song "I Hate Seagulls".
Kate Nash's debut album Made of Bricks was released in the UK in 2007 and in the US in early 2008. The album went platinum as she won The Brit for British Female Solo Artist, the NME Award for Best Solo Artist, and the Q Award for Breakthrough Artist. In early 2010, Kate released her second album, My Best Friend Is You, which included her second biggest hit on the charts to date Do-Wah-Doo.
