31/08/14: Cabaret duo Crystal D’ Canter and Kelly Mild kick-started the Sunday afternoon at Halfway 2 Heaven with some of their pop, disco and cabaret classics. The double act began lifting those Sunday blues with their sassy cover of Dolly Partons ‘9 to 5’ and Donna Summer’s disco thriller ‘Hot Stuff’.
If this wasn’t enough, the Halfway crowd were reduced to tears with the divas’ never-ending sexual innuendos and bitterness towards their adoring fans. The pints of ale were swaying mid-air while the cabaret sisters belted out Oliver Twist classic ‘Oom Pah Pah’. This exceptional Broadway performance left the gays asking for more!
Unlike poor Oliver, the appreciative crowd were in for a treat with some divine solo performances, including Crystal’s cover of Whitney’s ‘One Moment in Time’ and Bobbysocks’ Eurovision hit ‘Let it Swing’. Kelly stole the limelight with her version of George Michael’s ‘Secret Love’ and Dionne Warwick’s ‘I’ll Never Fall In Love Again’.
The blond bombshells topped off the weekend by singing their infamous Abba duets which included: ‘Dancing Queen’ ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’ and ‘Thank you for the music’ – shortly followed by giving a toast to a fabulous Sunday evening and downing another sweet but deadly skittlebomb!
