Sheena returns to college!
School return for Sheena
"It's an honour to come back"
Thank you to Louise Steel from the Coalville Times for the use of her article.
On the afternoon of Friday 27th February, the whole school gathered in the Harley Theatre to watch ex-student Sheena McHugh, who is appearing in ‘The Voice’ on BBC1. She is due to take part in the battle stages of the show this weekend (Saturday 7th March). Sheena is being mentored by ex-Black Eyed Pea’s member and international music producer, Will.i.am.
The Harley Theatre was full to the brim for all three shows, some people even attended twice because they loved her performance so much.
She gave incredible renditions of popular songs such as, Cee lo Green’s Forget you, and Drake’s Hold on, we’re going home.
Her first audition for ‘The Voice’ is available on YouTube; other performances are also available in the same place.
When Sheena was a student here, she already had an incredible voice, which was showcased through her supporting lead roles during college productions and end of year shows. Since leaving, her voice has gained strength, matured in tone and she is displaying signs of being a superstar singer of the future.
After speaking to students who had been to watch the performance, it is obvious that the reaction to Sheena’s performance was very positive, and many students have fallen in love with the way she performs.
Following her performance, Sheena and students took part in tweeting pictures and encouragements to celebrity mentor, Will.i.am; this was in aid of his potential visit to the college as part of the production of ‘The Voice’.
We would like to thank Sheena for taking time out of her hectic schedule to perform for us at College. SHE WAS AMAZING!
