The single entered the UK Top 100 Latino songs at #56 and is available for download through online music portals such as iTunes, Amazon MP3 and MySpace Music.
Her outstanding performance was extremely well received by all, as Andrew Thomason, Hotel Verta's General Manager quotes "Hotel Verta is extremely proud to be supporting Hestia, and to be chosen as the venue to launch Surianne's new single 'Stronger Than Before' which was an amazing live performance. All the staff at the hotel have fallen in love with Surianne and we wish her all the luck in the world with her music career."
Also performing on the night was up and coming singer/songwriter Guy Valarino who sang songs from his EP 'Sleeping On A Couch' including the beautiful ballad 'Two More Days', David Jordan who showcased songs from his new album including his 2008 hit song 'Sung Goes Down' and soul singer John Adeleye also known as J'Nay, who performed exclusive songs from his soon to be released album.
Julian Bennett and Sam Faiers who also took to the stage, expressed their support to this worthwhile cause that runs in conjunction with the centenary celebration of International Women's Day held on March 8th. Sam Said, "I met Surianne and Francois from Hestia back in December last year when I attended the pre-launch event for the charity single. It was then that I learned about the outstanding support offered by Hestia to women and children who are affected by Domestic Violence. There is however still a great deal of work that is needed to help raise public awareness and additional funding for Hestia's domestic violence services. Like Surianne, I too want to help spread the word about the great work that this charity does every day supporting many more people across London -- not just the women and children in the refuges."
Surianne is an independent artist who through her music is trying to make a difference in people's lives. By supporting her and downloading the single, she hopes to raise as much money as possible for the children and family projects at Hestia's domestic violence refuges.
