In tribute to Hawkins, Violet showcased her vocal talents at various tribute shows, delivering poignant performances of songs like The Zutons’ ‘Valerie’ and Jeff Buckley’s ‘Last Goodbye.’
Describing Violet’s prowess, event compere DJ Matt Pinfield exclaimed, “[Violet] was the featured vocalist all night with David Bowie keyboard legend Mike Garson and his band. She did stellar versions of all the Bowie songs. Her range is incredible.”
