But, as I discovered, singing holidays are a thing! Now just because there are singing holidays and retreats, it doesn’t mean you should jump in with both feet. But I was headed to Antigua, in the Caribbean, and had an email from the trip organisers: “Would you like to join the Caribbean choir?”, it read. “YES!” the diva within screamed.
