STUDENTS at a confidence workshop run by a winner of TV show Stars in Their Eyes are poised to overcome their stage fears tomorrow.

Professional singer Jacquii Cann won Stars In Their Eyes in 1993 as Alison Moyet and appeared on the programme a further six times as special guest. She has been running a workshop in Wymondham, teaching people how to gain the confidence to get up on stage and sing, as she believes there are so many people who would dearly love to sing, even on karaoke, but do not have the confidence to do it.

Now the five students, aged between 16 and 70, are ready to perform to a live audience and they will do so tomorrow at the Wymondham Ex-Services Club in a special show, half the proceeds of which will go to the 1st Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment Appeal.

The show will feature all the students singing, Jacquii herself performing later in the show, a comic game show host and compere and music to end the night.

Doors open at 7.30pm.

During the course the students have been in a recording studio to record their own version of New York, New York, have had a lesson in Samba, played instruments, learned listening and timing skills and have had a special guest from London who popped in to sing to them and tell them how he overcame his fears of performing.

Tickets are £6 each and are available at Wymondham shops: Reeves Stationery, The Card and Gift Shop, Jasmine's Florist (Harts Farm), and the Ex-Services Club.

Or you can call 01953 602479 and leave your name and number to reserve a ticket or to book a place for the next workshop. There are 10 spaces available.
