Primary school pupils from West Hill will take centre stage in a concert at Exeter Cathedral after winning a singing competition.
The 54-strong school choir triumphed in the Star for Christmas contest, and will perform alongside the Military Wives Choir and South West Comms Brass Band.
Schools from across the county submitted themselves for the BBC Radio Devon competition before a shortlist was drawn for a public vote.
West Hill Primary School wowed listeners with their version of Love Shone Down by Boyce and Stanley to win the large school category.
The school received more than a third of the 3,500 votes cast for the three finalists.
