Julia Fordham – The Artist
Julia Fordham (born 1962) is a British singer-songwriter. Her professional career started in the early 1980s, under the name “Jules Fordham”, as a backing singer for Mari Wilson and Kim Wilde, before signing a recording contract of her own later that decade. Fordham is now based in California. In 1988, Fordham released her first album on Circa Records, simply titled Julia Fordham. After a round of publicity including an appearance on the BBC1 Wogan chat show in April 1988, it reached No. 20 in the UK Albums Chart and eventually earned a platinum disc. The album contains the Top 40 single “Happy Ever After” (which peaked at No. 27 in August 1988). Fordham released her second album, Porcelain, in 1989. The album charted higher than her debut (No. 13) and was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry. She has since released over fifteen studio albums and continues to perform live.
Happy Ever After – The Song
Happy Ever After is a song by English singer-songwriter Julia Fordham, included on her self-titled debut album. Released as a single in 1988, it reached #27 in the UK Singles Chart. “Happy Ever After” was inspired by Nelson Mandela’s struggle through apartheid in South Africa and his imprisonment. The song was re-recorded for Fordham’s 1998 compilation album, The Julia Fordham Collection, and given the subtitle “Rain Forest Mix ’98”.
The Gingerbread Man & Woman – The Shape
This vinyl single has been reworked into a silhouette of a Gingerbread Man & Woman. Inspired in part by the book ‘Happy Ever After: A Radical New Approach To Living Well’ by Paul Dolan. A gingerbread man or woman is a biscuit or cookie made of gingerbread, usually in the shape of a stylised human being, although other shapes, especially seasonal themes (Christmas, Halloween, Easter, etc.) and characters, are common.
