TWO talented children will have their angelic voices featured on a Christmas single made in Oxfordshire.
Libby Griffiths, 10, a pupil at Sibford Junior School, in Sibford Ferris, and Will Homewood, 12, a pupil at Warriner School in Bloxham, were selected to sing the lead vocals on Dare to Make a Wish, which will be released on the iTunes website on Sunday, December 9.
Young singers from all over Oxfordshire performed in front of a judging panel featuring musical director Mo Westworth, of Unison Rock Academy, and former Island Records president Marc Marot.
Will and Libby joined about 400 other children from the area yesterday to record the single at St Mary’s Church in Banbury. They are pictured with Ms Westworth rehearsing at Sibford School for the recording session.
Proceeds from sales of the song will go to the charity Dyslexia Action Ms Westworth said: “By coincidence, Libby is also dyslexic, which the panel had no idea of until after she won the part.”
