Bahrain trip for Sidmouth singer Luanne
Sidford teenager to sing in Music High at Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix event
TALENTED Sidford singer, Luanne Hoare, will head to the Middle East next week to perform at the Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix championship.
Despite concerns the race may not go ahead because of unrest there, Luanne, 16, from Sidford Road, will join five other young people from Devon, aged 15-20, who form Music High, a tribute to High School Musical and Hannah Montana.
They will be part of the children’s spectator entertainment for the race, which is scheduled to take place at the Sakhir circuit on Sunday, April 22.
Luanne and her fellow performers, Ryan Duscha, 20, Grant Williams, 18, and Jade Hockings, 18, from Torquay, Jasmine Kewell, 20, from Newton Abbot and Hannah Partridge, 15, from Plymouth, have a gruelling schedule ahead of them, with five 20-minute performances over three days.

She and husband Andrew had expressed concern at allowing Luanne to go to Bahrain, but said she had been reassured she would be safe.
“If it does get cancelled we can’t do anything about it, but speaking to Becky it is all systems go,” she said.
Music High has performed at many Devon venues and events as well as international appearances, including Same Difference concert tour support, Woodlands Adventure Park, Paignton’s Palace Theatre and Gibralter International Boat Show.
