The sky’s the limit for a Bridlington teenager who feels ‘overwhelmed’ ahead of the release of her debut single.
Classical singer Emmie Beckitt, 15, is to release the Christmas single ‘Welcome a Star’ in collaboration with classically trained pianist, composer and TV presenter, Rick Wakeman.
She said: “I felt overwhelmed with excitement and extremely grateful to be given the opportunity when I got the call.
“The song gives a true meaning of Christmas. The lyrics have been taken from the Gospel, but it is not a Christmas carol or a hymn.
“It is a melodic Christmas song and is truly beautiful so I just hope I can do it justice.”
Emmie is in her final year at St Augustine’s School in Scarborough where she sings in the senior school chamber choir.
She admits that juggling school work with music can be difficult but also very rewarding with the help of staff and planning ahead.
“It’s a very busy time for me. I have at least six concerts, radio interviews, my grade eight singing exam and GCSE mocks so it can be a bit of a struggle.
