“I’ve never seen anything like it in my life before: It’s a party here 24/7

She performed with International violinist Andre Rieu, singing “Time to Say Goodbye”

“To stand on stage with Andre again - it felt like being at home.  It was amazing and wonderful. I really enjoyed every moment,” she said.

“What an honour to be asked to sing before the King and Queen. Thanks to Andre I was able to experience the most amazing moment in my life, “Mirusia said.
