Anita Downes covering CCR's song

Me! Covering "Have you Ever Seen the Rain" (Have you ever seen Lorraine?) last Monday at Inglewood on Beaufort Twilight. Of course, it rained a little, right after.

What an awesome afternoon gig! Neet, you were super fun, great rapport with the crowd and some brilliant covers to shake things up a little. Good to hear your originals too. We had such a fun time! Xxx

  • I urge people to check this wonderful talent out. Her performances and song writing ability is worthy radio airplay. As Molly Meldrum would say. ..."Do yourself a favour" and check her out.
