Rona Smith

“I would like to perform in this event to support Look UK as they are a wonderful charity. I would also like to make people feel happy, because of the strange times we are living in at the moment. I will be singing Last Christmas by Wham. I have been singing from an early age and I will be practicing this song every day in the run up to the performance. I have been doing a lot of singing during the pandemic to make myself feel happier and to help fill some of the time at home particularly when Colleges were closed during the first lockdown. I enjoy singing, because it makes me feel happy and when I am singing, my friends and family praise me for it which makes me feel like I am making others feel happy too.”

Sam, Jonah and Ben (brothers)

All three boys will be playing piano and have learnt new pieces for this event. Ben can play jingle bells, Jonah can play silent night and Sam can play Shakey Stevens Merry Christmas Everyone! Each piece is about a minute long). They have been super-busy practicing regularly.
