Year 8 student Vicki Louise Sherwin was presented with certificates and a trophy after winning two categories in a local music competition. The Leicester Competitive Festival of Music and Art is held annually at Beauchamp College in Oadby and attracts hundreds of entrants.
Vicki Louise entered three categories; an own choice vocal, a song from the show and a set piece, Vicki Louise won in two out of the three categories singing the Skye Boat song as a set piece and The Cloths of Heaven, an arrangement selected by her music teacher.
Vicki Louise said: ‘I have been singing since I could talk and been going to lessons since I was 8. I began practicing my songs for the competition before the summer holiday and was really happy when I won two of my events. I have done quite a few competitions and shows and some of the most recent songs I have learned include a Christmas song from Polar Express and ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight?’
