Andrene Hughes (Anna-Frid) began her training with the Valda Hunter School of Dance and with the sensational Estill Vocal Coach, Gillian Archibald.
Her first major part was playing one of the lead roles in David Da Silva’s Fame at the King’s Theatre in Glasgow for the Apollo Players. In attendance at this show was a successful Scottish agent who then took Andrene under his wing and helped her embark on her singing career in Scotland.
Since then, Andrene has been part of several different ABBA Tribute bands throughout the years and sang to sell-out crowds alongside some very talented singers and musicians. She has played at the SECC Armadillo, Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall, P&O Cruises, Festivals throughout Scotland as well as International shows in Brussels and Barbados.
Both her Mother and Father joke that when she was upset as a young child, the only thing that would comfort her was being walked up and down the floor to ABBA singing in the background.
Fast forward a few years and little did they know she would be playing the part of Frida for a living with all her early training.
Her favourite ABBA song is I Have A Dream after experiencing the magical moment of connecting with the SECC audience as they sang it back to her while waving their mobile phones in the air lighting up the whole theatre.
She looks forward to entertaining your audiences and singing at a stage near you very soon.
