The birth of Edmund caused many changes that would have lasting effects on the Tyrone family. His effect on his mother was perhaps the most pronounced.

I have chosen to perform Because of You for my assessment song this term, I feel this song is sung well with my type of voice and works well within a Musical Theatre/Pop genre, thus making is suitable to use for auditions.
