MaceOnce Upon A Time [album]
with a heart of gold Zoë Mace sings her heart out to campaign for
Syndrome charity Downside Up...
HEART-STOPPING. That was our first impression of ZoŽ Mace's glorious
voice. It is difficult to believe that she is just twelve years old as her singing
large dose of maturity rarely
heard in one so young.
The well-chosen tracks on her debut CD album, Once Upon A Time, serve
as an example of her amazing repertoire. It comes as no surprise to learn that
ZoŽ is a classically-trained mezzo soprano but her char-ming personality shines
through and it is fitting that she is earning plaudits for her extraordinary
Although she has been hailed as "the new Charlotte Church"
which should give some indication of her sublimely beautiful, angelic voice
surprise is the depth of emotion that enhances ZoŽ's outstanding performance.
The heart-soaring vocal virtuosity of Les Cisseaux dans le chamille (The
Doll Song), the unforgettable rendition of Nessun Dorma and ZoŽ's
version of the poignant song Eric Clapton wrote for his son Conor, Tears
In Heaven, combine to make the Once Upon A Time album extremely touching
campaigning for Down's Syndrome charities, ZoŽ has raised over £120,000. It
was her wish to honour the memory of her sister Jodie
a decision quite remarkable for one so young
and she recently joined Rosa Monckton, patron of the Down's Syndrome charity
Upside Down, in a campaign on behalf of the charity that has gained national
exposure including feature profiles in Hello and the Daily Mail.
Rosa's daughter, who has Down's Syndrome, was a godchild of the late Princess
Once Upon A Time looks set to launch ZoŽ Mace as one of the most exciting
new stars from the world of music. It is also rare to find a young person who
has a genuine desire to improve the lives of those less fortunate. We will be
hearing a great deal more of this young lady and her remarkable talent.
It goes without saying that high on ZoŽ's wish-list will be seeing Once Upon
A Time at the top of the classical album charts. But her over-riding desire
is for Tears In Heaven to give hope and much needed support to children
with Down's Syndrome and their families.
ZoŽ Mace is one rising star who has her feet planted firmly on the ground and
her heart very much in the right place.
