Vocaltutor students Samantha Courtney Armstrong (16 years) and Jacee Lee Pink (11 years) have made it through to the regional finals of exciting singing competition TeenStar. The competition took place in late February at the Volvo Theatre in Newcastle.

Jacee Lee also recently joined the youngest girl band in Sunderland called NYPOI. They are also through to the regional finals.

Vocaltutor teacher Helena Webber said, "I am so proud of the girls for what they have achieved. They work so hard in lessons and they really deserve this. It's one of the reasons I love teaching - to be able to see their achievements really come to life!".
