The judges were very impressed with Raquel’s piece ‘Crestfallen’
“Beautiful instrumentation from the start, the song begins beautifully, the performance is heartfelt and draws you in. The vocal and instrumental arrangement is really well thought out and well executed. Love the pre chorus!”
“A very strong song. It deals with weighty subject matter with sensitivity and positivity with a ‘lift’ in the chorus to reflect the sense of resolve in the protagonist”
“The opening piano riff deserves special mention for its catchiness and emotional weight. Beautiful verse also”
