About the Music in the Video
“I was thinking about songs and artists that I like, and Nick Waterhouse is one such artist. I approached Nick to see if he would be willing to permit me to use his music as a background for my The Masquerade Ball video. He happily gave his blessing.
“It’s all about love and the good stuff that makes the world go around.
“Nick Waterhouse’s music has an element of the ‘oldies’ but with contemporary themes of love - sometimes bittersweet - a bit like my visuals and messages.” - Anthea Missy

"I’m finding it’s a good to time to reconnect with myself. I’m enjoying the solitude. Poetry is more obvious due to the fact that I avoid the news as much as possible. I’m in my world. I encourage people to take a deep dive into themselves, that they reconnect with their own creativity, self love and love for others."L’amour vaincra – love will overcome!" - Anthea Missy
