Stuart Hannibal has always loved singing. It all started with a primary school production of 'My Fair Lady' trying to woo Eliza Doolittle 'on the street where you live'. Stuart has performed in Musical theatre in Birmingham, 'crooned' for the Sinatra UK Music Society, and over the last few years he's enjoyed singing with his local Choral Society. He loves to mess around on his piano and has been known to pick up a guitar, but most of all, he just loves to croon...
