12 year old Sophie from Hove is a talented singer and in 2016 won a singing competition out of 200 competitors. She attends Theatre Workshop and wanted to continue her studies on the singer/songwriting course but her family were unable to afford it. We awarded Sophie the money to pay for 3 terms of singer-songwriting, private singing and keyboard sessions.
Sophie says: “I am very grateful for my award as I am sure it help me with my singing and all my Theatre Studies, and hopefully build my confidence through this year. It will also help build my confidence for school and help make me feel happy.”
Update January 2018
Sophie is entering a singing class at Springboard Festival in 2018, supported by Brighton and Hove Rotary. She has recently been composing her own songs and accompanying herself on the piano.
