Students in the Cardinal Newman School Choir are taking part in The Big Sing Off and are being mentored by an X Factor finalist.
Hildia Campbell from Voices With Soul, who were finalists in the 2004 series, is helping coach the choir ahead of the event in February half term.
Hildia said: “I really enjoyed mentoring the singers and I am now really looking forward to the event.”
Head of Music Stan Carter said: “Hildia’s vast experience as a professional recording artist and as a London West End performer will be invaluable to our students during their preparation for the competition. We have a great choir who not only enjoy singing but also each other’s company which has created a strong group and can share their talent.’
