This week we caught up with Dramacube Actor Lily Bernard who performed at the O2 Arena on Tuesday at the Young Voices Concert.
Lily, congratulations on an amazing performance on Tuesday. What was it like performing at the O2?
It was so much fun! It was cool that we were high up in the arena so I got a great view of the audience. I couldn’t believe how big it was!
Can you tell us how you prepared for the concert?
I attend my school choir every Tuesday morning before school. We were given all of the song lyrics to learn and even practiced alongside some of the artists that performed via a video link!
Can you tell us about some of the artists who performed with the Young Voices choir?
- Natalie Williams is a Soul/Jazz singer/songwriter.
- The Magnets are a vocal harmony group which includes one who does beatboxing!
- Alfie Sheard is an up and coming singer who also plays the guitar.
- Urban Strides Who are Street Dance specialists.
There must have been over 7000 people in the audience. What was it like performing to such a big crowd?
It was amazing to perform in front of that many people! I thought I would be nervous, but once the show started I was so excited!
Can you tell us a little more about Young Voices and how you got involved?
Young Voices inspires children to discover their love for music. This year over 3000 schools signed up to take part in the largest children’s choir concert series in the world!
Can you offer any hints or tips to your fellow Dramacube actors about performing at such a huge venue?
Don’t be afraid to take on new challenges as I found mine so exciting and I would love to do it again.
We’d like to thank Lily for sharing her experience with us and wish her the very best of luck with her forthcoming production of Alice in Wonderland.
