Helen Davies was born into a very musical family,
with her mother being an opera singer
and her father being a conductor.
Due to her father’s job they moved to Bonn
in her early childhood years where
she saw her first musical theater show:
Jesus Christ Superstar.
This show inspired her and she decided
she wanted to become a musical theater singer.
The show also made her wonder how people
could hang a man on a cross whose only crime
was being a spiritual leader to the people of the time.
Her belief in humanity was questioned at an early age but her passion for healing through music never wavered.
She learned piano and violin at the age of 6.
With her father being a conductor,
Helen was able to watch rehearsals of operas
and concerts all the time.
She got to sit in the first row during
performances and she loved every moment.
Although she enjoyed the operas,
her true love was musical theater.
She learned all the lines from every show she saw.
Whenever she was in New York City,
her father would take her to see a Broadway show.
One of her favorite moments was seeing
Julie Andrews in Victor/Victoria, in the second row.
It was then, Helen realized the power of music
and especially musical theater.
The way it could just make you forget
all your troubles and escape to somewhere else
was actually one of the realest things in the world.
A reality in art makes your problems seem so small.
At the age of 10, when her parents separated,
her mother and Helen moved to Bavaria
where she had to start all over again,
meet new people, make new friends and
experience how it is to move away from a big city
into a small village.
The village her mother was born in.
In order to distract herself from her pain of losing
her very cultured life and her best friends in Bonn,
Helen delve into musical theater and the movies
from the 40s and 50s.
Her favorite movies were usually funny,
romantic and musical starring either
Judy Garland, Gene Kelly or Frank Sinatra.
It was Judy Garland who inspired Helen
so much that she would later have a
Judy Garland Show in Germany.
She played the role of Judy as she spoke about
her life. She also sang 17 of her best songs
during the show.
At 13 she met someone who introduced her
to songwriting and how to accompany herself on the piano –
that’s when her singer-songwriter-passion was born.
Whenever she was sad or wanted to express
herself, she either wrote a song or a poem,
which is still the case today.
Helen always felt that she would one day move
away from home. She would live in New York
and be a musical theater singer.
Determined to fulfill her dreams, she moved
close to her father who was
the chief conductor of Linz, Austria, at that time.
There she had singing lessons at the
Bruckner Conservatory in Linz
parallel to going to school.
When she finished school,
she put her big dream on hold and studied
psychology in the University in Salzburg.
She was always interested in how people think
and feel and wanted to inspire them to change their lives
for the better.
She was very open minded, intuitive and
the kind of person people love to come to
and talk to about their problems so,
in order to find clarity in their own lives.
Yet deep in her heart she yearned more and more for her childhood dreams of singing on stage.
She wanted to at least pursue a career in musical theater
and started to study in Vienna, Austria, and later in Nuremberg, Germany.
All her life she always wanted to
make a difference in the world,
through her voice and her words.
She saw so many people suffering in their lives
that she wanted to lift them up,
help them find 2-3 hours a day of distraction,
bringing them into a new world/ease their pain and help them to learn and to grow.
A few months later she fulfilled her childhood dream and moved to New York City, auditioning for shows and singing in church.
Then, in April 2015, she met Timothy James
"Music heals, it brings you to new and unexplored places.
It can give you a piece of peace, make you feel emotions you haven't felt in years.
If you don't have any words to say, because you are speechless, music does it for you.
Allow music to speak through you!!!"
Helen Davies (From the Aether)
What do you sense, what do you feel?
Close your eyes and tell me what is real?!
When you close your eyes, is not everything the same?
We are all connected in the eyes of Spirit and life is just a game.
Laugh a little more and smile when you look into the world.
Everyone takes himself to seriously... forgets his inner pearl.
The heart is that what matters - the heart is that what shines.
One day you may look older but your soul is still divine.
So rejoice a little more each day -
And let the troubles drift away.
Tomorrow is not promised, yesterday is gone.
Tell me did you enjoy the present or is life pushing you down?
Have you ever truly lived,
Did you ever realize that life is a gift?
If you leave earth tomorrow,
Was everything you went through just sorrow???
Remember, love, that love is your treasure -
Love yourself and let go of pressure.
Rise every day a little more -
You'll see in a few days everything's different than before.
And if someone tries to put you down -
Remember it's YOU who wears the crown!
You are the only one who rules within -
With these words said: LET LIFE BEGIN!
