Our French Celebration

The month of July in Airdnua was dedicated to France!!!!!!!!!

 

We started off the day with a delicious French themed tea break, we had French cheeses served with crackers and grapes.

A lot of us got the opportunity to try a type of cheese that we had never eaten before.

 

We followed with a French classic at lunchtime…….. Beef Bourguignon.

We learned that this is similar to  our own Beef Stew, it originated in Burgundy and it cooked using red wine and  garlic, onions and a bouquet garni.

Everyone really enjoyed it and we all showed our gratitude to our chef Barnardo by clearing our plates!!!!!!

The art group decorated the canteen with some French style pictures and flag and it made look very festive.

We also played some traditional French music such as

  • La Mer
  • La Vie En Rose
  • Sous Le Ciel De Paris
  • La Boheme
  • Le Sud

The music really added to the overall effect. We were able to imagine ourselves sitting in a French café on the River Seine 🙂

We can confirm………………EVE’s Got Talent!!!!!!!!

Well if we weren’t already confident about the amount of talent amongst the service users of HSE EVE…….we certainly are now!!!!

?

A group of us from Airdnua headed over to EVE Estuary today, where we received a very warm welcome, for the North-side Heats of the EVE’s Got Talent competition.

We had two performers from Airdnua taking part, Claire and Selena. There was a lot of great acts, some brilliant singers, a comedian, a dance troupe, altogether it was a very entertaining day. Claire made it through and will sing again in Liberty Hall.

“I enjoyed the day, I didn’t believe that I’d get through to the final, I know that I have to practise, I’m going to do the same song at the final as I sang today, which was Paper Roses because I think if I try to sing a different song it might not be as good. I’m very excited to go to Liberty Hall.”                                                       Claire

EVE Estuary were fantastic hosts, they put on a lovely spread for lunch and made the day run very smoothly. The team from Tuisicint perfectly organised the day, from judging to sound/ music, it ran like clockwork!

And lets not forget Hugh who did a fantastic job of compere!

There was great celebration at the end of the day when the finalists were announced and we were delighted when Claire’s name was called! She’ll be busy practising between now and the big Finale in Liberty Hall!

Thanks to everyone for organising such a brilliant day, from all the gang in Airdnua

A spectators point of view

On Wednesday 21st October we all went out on a trip to EVE Holdings in Swords. There were seven of us and we listened to the “EVE’s Got Talent” performers which included about 15 songs from all the centres in EVE. It ran from about 11 o’clock to half past 2. with a break for lunch about 1 o’clock .

We all had plenty of sandwiches and cakes and chocolate éclairs. We had tea and coffee and minerals to drink and there was plenty to eat for everyone. Claire and Selena sang for Airdnua and the two of them were very good.

Life is what I found by m power

Sometimes I feel blue
With the world on my shoulder
I face the day as I get older
It’s hard to accord in what I feel
With the Pain I feel it takes time to heal
So tell me lord if I’m real

Pick me when I fall
God can only make that call
Help me release my pain
Wash it all out in the rain
Yeah
When I’m down
That’s the time to turn it around
Life is what I found
Life is what I found

I am a man on a mission
Lord won’t you help me make the decision
Help me find the confident s in myself
Let me tell how I feel
Do people know I am real?
I am real

Pick me when I fall
God can only make that call
Help me release my pain
Wash it all out in the rain
Yeah
When I’m down
That’s the time to turn it around
Life is what I found
Life is what I found

So my life unfold
Life has been untold

Pick me when I fall
God can only make that call
Help me release my pain
Wash it all out in the rain
Yeah
When I’m down
That’s the time to turn it around
Life is what I found
Life is what I found

“Party Up” by M Power

Here’s one of my favourite songs that I’ve written, it’s a happy upbeat song that gets any crowd in the mood for a party………..

Party Up

Chorus: Party OT ooo Party up party up party up {x4}

 Verse one:

Party up and let’s dance

I might find romance

Got my music

Got my life

Got to party all nite

Everyone dancing under the street light

Everything will be alright {x2}

Everything will be alright {x2}

Everything will be alright {x2}

Let’s party the night away

Yeah

We’ve got to see it

We’ve got to know it

Let the music come so show it

Chorus: Party OT ooo Party up party up party up {x4}

Verse two:

Have a packet of crisps and a bottle of coke

I am big bloke and that’s no joke

What you going to do

Lady gaga will give Miley Cyrus a poke

Poker face

Take me to another level out of this place

I’m on the dance floor

And I want to bop more

You’ve got Cheryl Hernandez that places it hardcore

In her song and dance

If she does a duet she has a chance

Yeah

We’ve got to see it

We’ve got to know it

Let the music come so show it

Chorus: Party OT ooo Party up party up party up {x4}

O party life here party life there

Throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care

O party life here party life there

Throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care

Chorus: Party OT ooo Party up party up party up {x4}

Help me release my rhythm

I’m here to make a track at number one

It takes a number one rapper from the ‘mun

That’s why I like to have fun in a way

I represent the homies that passed away

I pray for those every day

It’s hard when there beneath

While I struggle when I’m on my feet

It’s hard when I’m in a rap battle

That’s when the nerves rattle

Because

I rap all day

I sleep all night

When I’m on stage

I get stage fright

That’s when I shout

Yeah

Help me lord

Through the times

Help me release my rhythms {x2}

I made this far

Will I get enough money for a house and a car?

I’ve got great courage and faith

To change it’s never too late

I got what it takes

Knowing I have the other

It probably wouldn’t be in the

Music industry only because I have a wonderful

Mother

 My plan is

I rap all day

I sleep all night

When I’m on stage

I get stage fright

That’s when I shout

Yeah

Help me lord

Through the times

Help me realest my rhythms{x2}

Poetry; New Solider

New Soldier

Kicking back as the day goes by

If I want to achieve my goal I have got to try

It’s all about decision making

It’s all about what steps I’m taking

See it is about how I am going to achieve my goal

And not to let my life unfold

I have got to stay positive

And keep my goodness of faith

To achieve my goal it never to late

I should know I lived 32 years

It time to recorded this record and face my fears

I tried and tried to find the right rhythm

Now you see I tell a story in this time

 

There was a young solider that was took of his feet

And nearly left beneath

Nearly left beneath

His life fell down

Drink and drugs is what he found

He turns life around and you would not think it

Was me when you hear this sound?

 

I used to take drugs drink and gamble to proceed

All addictions of life I could not believe

My life did fall down

I turned my life around

I pray the lord above

That I’m blessing with his love

I’ve got to stay positive

I keep the faith

I’m drug free and sober and gambling free

I change it’s never to late

 

There was a young solider that was took of his feet

And nearly left beneath

Nearly left beneath

His life fell down

Drink and drugs is what he found

He turns life around and you would not think it

Was me when you hear this sound?

 

 

I’m young solider that will take no crap

I’ll let u hear my story in a rap

 

There was a young solider that was took of his feet

And nearly left beneath

Nearly left beneath

His life fell down

Drink and drugs is what he found

He turns life around and you would not think it

Was me when you hear this sound?

 

 

Christmas M.C Power style!!!!

Happy Christmas

Here’s a song I wrote (based on Santa Claus is coming to Town) during my cretaive writing. hope you all enjoy it!

Santa clause is coming to town remix

(Written by Jimmy Power)

Santa won’t you stop by my house tonight

Have a cookie

Have a glass of milk

I’ll blow out the candle and say goodnight

So park the sleigh on top

Santa don’t forget to stop

So don’t forget about the fire being lit

Eat a cookie and leave me a bit

So if you want Santa come on down

Because Santa is coming to town

Santa clause is coming to town [x3]

Santa wont you leave a gift

To bad I can’t get on the sleigh for a lift

Instead I wrote my list

Miss clause will you give me a kiss

Won’t you sleep by my side?

And let me hold my pride

Because miss clause I wont naught you about

So lets all the children shout

Santa clause is coming to town [x3]

Rap Song

We party for the regenerations..

Tonk tonk men have vodka and bardies,
The party of the regenerations to see,
Party me
Let’s go

No matter situations
We party for the nations
So live up the destinations

Let’s get it up and dance
Party when we have the chance
Might get Jennifer Lopez as my romance
Slim Shady got the pink stocking
Music is for mocking
Not for blocking
Love it or not
Igave as well as I got
M Power found hit hop
The party will never stop

No matter situations
We party for the nations
So live up the destinations

Lets dance to the song
Disco lights is on
So play it with the next mc
Ya all want to know me when I am on the TV
I was already on the radio asnd in the newspaper
If you want my autograph later
Come to the hometown for fun
Where the song is sung

No matter situations
We party for the nations
So live up the destinations
So live up the destinations
We party for the regenerations
We party for the regenerations
