REACHING for the stars is something that youngsters at a city performing arts school are determined to do after appearing on television.

Students from Arts1 School of Performance showed off their talent throughout the regional heats and rounds on CBBC show ‘Sport Relief Does Glee Club 2012’.

They earned their medals as ‘Believe’ – a glee club which was formed in early 2011 and takes its musical influence from Queen, Take That, The Lion King and Katy Perry.

Members Charlie Miller, Megan Ferguson, Sasha Marshall, Kaylea Nicholls, Alice Ward, Bethan Walton, Linden Iliffe, Emma Day and vocal mentor James Grimsey travelled to Scotland to film their performances. James said: “It was a great experience which started with us auditioning at Pineapple Dance Studios last November before going to Glasgow.

“The group did brilliantly, despite having one member on crutches –so much so that we kept our ‘crutchography’ in to reflect the diversity celebrated in ‘Glee’. Believe received great feedback from the judges and made it really far out of the 200 groups who tried out.”

Believe narrowly missed out on performing in the live finals for the voting public after being nudged out of their top five spot.
