From overseas tours to the secret to connecting with audiences on stage, Clifford shares his insights and experiences candidly. Join us as we dive into the world of Clifford Richards, and discover what makes this talented entertainer tick.

As an entertainer, there are many exciting projects and endeavours that one can be a part of in the industry. For Richards, the past year brought a number of overseas tours to Canada, London, and Bangladesh, where they were able to meet new people and visit beautiful places. These experiences were particularly enjoyable for Richards, as the audiences were appreciative and fun-loving. The best part of it all was being able to visit some great places of great natural beauty and cuisine!

In addition to their work in the entertainment industry, Richards also practices Yoga, which has had a major impact on his life. Yoga is a way of life. It is all about keeping your body and mind in one place. So through Yoga, while keeping your body and mind in one place, you can concentrate more on whatever you do. It has a major effect on calming your mind. That is one of the main investments you can make. Yoga is not just about physical exercise, but also about keeping the body and mind in one place and being able to concentrate more on whatever one does. This has helped Richards to strengthen himself mentally and physically, and has also helped with his music. Through the breathing exercises in Yoga, Richards’ voice projection, training and strength of his vocal body has been improved. Yoga has also helped with Richards’ appearance, which is an important aspect of being an entertainer.

Richards trained Yoga under Anoja Weerasinghe, and then he went for the teacher training course in India. Now Richards is a qualified teacher and he teaches in Colombo and Kandy. But for his own practice, he continues to visit Anoja.

Not all events in the entertainment industry are positive. In reference to a reported altercation between Will Smith and Chris Rock that occurred at the 2022 Oscars, Clifford Richards believes that there are other ways of reacting in such situations, and that it is possible to respond in a more civilized way.

“It is all about how people react to different situations. In my opinion, he should have responded in a more civilized way. If you do not agree with something, there are very many ways of reacting. Some people turn abusive. That is a fine example. I believe that I have no right to judge someone else, but if I was in that situation, I would react in a different way. In my opinion, there are other ways of reacting,” Richards said.

When it comes to connecting with an audience, Richards believes that it comes naturally and that they thank god for it. They believe that there is something in them that allows them to connect with the crowd, which is very important for singers and announcers. The key to making the crowd have a good time is to keep them happy and not offend anyone, and to be yourself, as everybody is unique.

As a compere, Richards believes that the key is to be liked by society, and that before any qualifications, it is important to be liked by your boss or society. The secret to being a great compere is to identify yourself, your strengths and weaknesses, and to be yourself.

For 2023, Richards’ plans, ambitions and goals are to improve themselves and do things better than what they did before, and just to keep going. They believe that the key is to enjoy what you have and enjoy the moment, and to better yourself every day.
