A few weeks ago we announced that Cherry was to play one of the Sweet Sensations in the Vision Of Elvis production show touring theatres all over the country which included a flying visit over to Ontario, Canada where they performed in Bancroft's Ice Hockey Arena last weekend.

Says Cherry, "I'm loving this new opportunity that i've been given in this high energy show. Being an Elvis fan and of course being over to Memphis several times including trips to Graceland and Tupelo, Mississippi to Elvis's childhood home, really brings memories back of that wonderful place every time I hit the stage with the guys. The band are fantastic, three members of which I already knew and what's worked out as a lovely coincidence is I sing the Dan Penn/Spooner Oldham penned Sweet Inspiration in the show and I actually met Dan and hung out with him last year in Muscle Shoals, Alabama so it's an honour to sing his song!"

There's various dates throughout this year and the tour will carry on into 2018 too so take a look at the tour page if this sounds like your bag if you're an Elvis fan and simply a lover of that fantastic musical era. There are a handful of shows with Cherry's band this year but as Cherry takes time out to pursue other musical projects, it won't be until 2018 now that Cherry will concentrate on her music full time with a planned release and tour.

Take a look at the photo collage below from Cherry's recent trip out to Canada and as always you can get daily updates on her Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages.
