The group, mostly aged in their early 20s, met at the Orchard Lane centre where they practised covers of famous songs, recorded a CD and performed to their friends and family as part of a project run by Bedazzle Performing Arts. The 22 pupils, who have learning difficulties including Downs syndrome and autism, covered tracks such as the Jacksons Blame it on the Boogie, Shine by Take That, and Roar by Katy Perry. Phil Janssen, creative head, said: The main thing is the confidence building to be able to stand up and sing in front of an audience is daunting for anybody. Its also about communication skills and vocal range. INFORMATION: For more, call 07841 990609 or visit www.bedazzlearts.com.
