Cassandra Dockery-Pirouzi

 

My Name is Cassandra Dockery-Pirouzi, I live in Birmingham UK.

I am the Programme Area Leader for a 14-16 Alternative Provision at a Further Education college in Birmingham.

 
From a young age I loved to sing and listen to gospel music. I remember as a teenager holding a can deodorant pretending it was a mic singing to Kirk Franklin, Aretha Franklin, Fred Hammond etc, acting like I was singing in a mini concert in my bedroom :)

In 2000 I started to song lead with the Praise & Worship Team at River of Life Church, I then progressed to become the Praise & Worship Leader. 
 
2006 I joined Birmingham Community Gospel Choir lead by Pastor Maxine Brooks.  Being part of the choir I sang gospel and inspirational songs at concerts and weddings at various locations around England.  The best feeling in the world is when you're singing with others and people are touched and inspired by what you do.
