Backstage with International Singer Jodie Cooper
We caught up with our International Female Singer UK, Jodie Cooper to talk about her experience being backstage at the Flight Centre Global Gathering in Berlin.
Being a part of the same shows as A-list celebrities such as Michael McIntyre, Jimmy Carr, and Kylie Minogue is all in a day’s work for our artists.
“Performing at global events always presents the opportunity to meet and perform alongside many famous people. When I was asked to perform at the FCTG Global Gathering in Berlin I never thought I would be having casual conversations with the likes of Chris Hemsworth moments before singing in front of 3000 people.” Jodie Cooper
FCTG Global Gathering was created as an incentive event for Flight Centre, Australia’s largest retail travel outlet. Employees flew into Berlin, Germany from Australia to experience a unique live entertainment production, complete with celebrity guests and comedians, international singers and dancers. Our Entertainment Specialist Iwan Küchenberg worked with the creative producer to pull together the world’s best talent.
Louise Schweikert, Senior Creative Director at CI Events, was full of praise for the work we put in behind the scenes:
“I can't begin to say thank you or even work out the correct words to show my gratitude. The show was AMAZING. You all hit the ground running, included all my crazy briefing notes, worked at breakneck speed and had the audience in rapture. The result was nothing but world class.”
Having performed many gigs with Scarlett Entertainment Jodie told us that she really enjoys the backstage experience and when it comes to pre-performance nerves, she is one of the lucky ones:
“I generally don’t get nervous before I perform which makes my backstage experience much more pleasant” - Jodie Cooper, International Female Singer UK
