Krystyna ‘Kasia’ Zofia Poprawska-Carr (née Goryl) R.I.P
It is with deepest sympathy and with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of my Polish mother Krystyna ‘Kasia’ Zofia Poprawska-Carr (née Goryl) R.I.P. As you can imagine her passing has left us all completely devastated. My mother was such a brave and courageous lady who loved her country Poland and did everything possible to make sure that her Polish language and Polish traditions were respected. The passing of a mother for a daughter is an experience that is one of deep sadness and heartache. My mother made me the woman I am today. My mother was the reason I started composing music, writing songs and performing. My mother gave me my Polish blood and heritage. My mother gave me life. My mother’s soul will always be with me – a strong lady, an independent spirit who always fought for what is right and just. I am so proud of my mother and everything she fought to achieve. I am so proud to be her eldest daughter and her favourite artist and her soldier.
Please include us in your prayers and to pray for the soul of my dear Mamusia Mama Mummy RIP.

Obituary : Krystyna ‘Kasia’ Zofia Poprawska-Carr (née Goryl)
My Mother died on 12th March precisely nine months prior to her birthday on 12th December. The week my mother died the weather in England changed dramatically with the Siberian frontal temperatures. Moments away from the Royal Free Hospital is Hampstead Heath and I took this photo of the Heath Ponds whilst in a snow blizzard. I was speaking to my mother as I was focussing the shot and I am sure that the bright sparks you can see on the photo were her spirit shining through and making a connection with me….
Thank you to you all for your time, kindness and continued support of my music.
My next album will be dedicated to my Polish Mother Krystyna R.I.P.
