Eve is in good voice at St Rocco’s event

Priestley Voice 3 webPRIESTLEY student Eve Hardman won the High School Voice competition with a rendition of Breathe from In the Heights.

Eve, who studies Extended Diploma in BTEC Performing Arts, went through to the finals at Sir Thomas Boteler after several rounds of the competition at Priestley College.

“It was great to go through because the standard was so high at Priestley, but to win the competition is just fantastic,” said Eve, a former pupil at St Gregory’s High School.

Eve was joined by fellow Priestley student Christy Bellis, a former pupil at Ormston and Bolingbrook Academy in Runcorn, who also performed brilliantly on the night.

Priestley Tutor Debbie Booth said: “Our two singers Christy and Eve were up against excellent acts from Great Sankey, Penketh, Boteler and Culcheth High School.

“Both of them put in amazing performances and it was great to see Eve named the winner.

“I have to thank everyone who supported the competition we held at Priestley, which raised money for St Rocco’s Hospice, which is a very worthwhile cause.”

The 10 finalists in the event – which was organised by St Rocco’s – each performed one song in front of a panel of judges with the winning student being awarded a two-hour recording session at the Star Studios at Gulliver’s World.

Priestley also received £500 worth of musical prizes, kindly donated by Shaun Stevenson of the Ring O’Bells pub, on Church Street.
