About Nancy


Nancy May is an Essex based classical crossover soprano. Nancy trained at the Royal Northern College of Music, and has now gone on to forge her own career performing in and around the Essex area, with many concerts in the diary for 2023.

Nancy is passionate about supporting charities and has been humbled to sing each year at the Grenfell memorial service with the most recent at Westminster Abbey. Charities supported include Farleigh Hospice, Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Royal British Legion and more recently ‘FaNs Network’, a charity helping care homes throughout Essex.

Nancy also teaches singing, and her lessons are in high demand due to her unique style of using singing as a way to build personal confidence.

Throughout 2020 & 2021 (During Lockdown) she performed online concerts via Facebook, these concerts saw thousands joining her each Friday evening and helped Nancy gain an audience from all over the world.

Nancy recently released her debut album ‘With Love’ and an EP titled, ‘Why Not’. The EP saw Nancy take some more modern songs and create a new unique style, whilst remaining true to her classical background.

Nancy has the distinct honour of singing with the renowned tenor, Russell Watson, on his Magnificent Buildings Tour this year! As Russell Watson’s special guest, Nancy shares the stage with the iconic performer alongside the wonderful Mike Moran who is accompanying on the piano.

Hi, I was at your concert tonight in Saffron Walden and you were wonderful. My daughter had bought tickets because today was my 72nd birthday. A real birthday treat. I hope your career goes ever upwards. You deserve it.

What a delight! Nancy blended her engaging and sparkling personality with incredible professionalism in performing many songs covering a variety of tastes - in fact - a song for everyone.

I just wanted to say that I stood and listened to you for a while today at Waterloo. You have an amazing voice and are clearly highly trained. It’s performers like you that make living and working in London worthwhile

Our guests were absolutely blown away by her talent and professionalism and we cannot praise this beautiful and talented singer enough…you will not be disappointed.

Congratulations on your tremendous concert at St Mary's last night. It was a triumph!
The atmosphere created by the lighting and candles was spectacular; the programme was like a top quality fashion magazine with sophisticated photography and design; your supporting musicians were most impressive, especially Eco and Jayden in their ambitious and challenging piece after the interval...

“Nancy’s incredible voice and gentle nature make her the perfect match for care homes. Residents love her and her diverse song choices and can’t wait for her to return! We absolutely love her”.


Nancy’s phenomenal voice not only captured our cyclist and supporters but everyone visiting Cutty Sark that day. 

We were so privileged to have her support our charity. This young lady is a true star that needs more recognition not only in the U.K. but all over the world.

Nancy sang at the Saffron Walden Golf Club to the Saffron Walden Rotary Club. It was a beautiful performance from a lovely young lady whose voice captured us all. She made the evening with our friends and guests perfect.

Nancy May’s voice is powerful, dynamic and angelic.

It’s strange when you witness a voice so beautiful that you find yourself fighting back the tears at a busy London train station. Though, I must admit that the bloke standing next to me was having the same dilemma.

I was transfixed by the power of her voice, her beauty and the renditions she gave. Thank you Nancy for making my day.

I just wanted to say thank you for entertaining us so beautifully

Your voice is so divine! Thank you for sharing it!
Your singing was a really lovely and quite serene end to a very busy day. Best wishes – and keep on singing, you were obviously born to do it!
When you meet Nancy there is no doubt that she is beautiful inside and out, then comes this monster of a voice with incredible range which has on occasion left people in tears.
From her fabulously powerful voice, to the on-stage-story-telling and self-deprecating wit, she is a gift and inspiration. The audience was in turns delighted at a Disney medley, then transfixed through the Saint-Saëns aria ‘My heart opens itself to your voice’. Because that is literally what happened. Amazing talent. Never miss a chance to hear her
I was not sure what to expect, but the moment Nancy began to sing the hair on the back of my neck tingled. Nancy has an incredible voice, and it all appears so effortless. Wow! The whole evening was so beautifully presented.
