Mrs Martin said: “I have been lucky enough to have sung not only in choirs but as a soloist, in a quartet and with larger ensembles. Each of these experiences has taught me that singing brings people together in a positive way and spreads joy.
“It is important to me that young people are given the opportunity to pursue their dreams, express themselves and to develop and showcase their talents. I hope that Young Voices Unite will provide young people with a sense of self belief and allow them to shine.”
