X FACTOR 2011 finalist Misha B showed off her amazing singing talents when she visited Selston Arts and Community College and performed for students.
The singer performed two songs in front of a crowd made up of music, drama and performing arts students from years 7, 8 and 9.
After her stunning performance, Misha held a question and answer session, in which students learnt about the joys and rigours of being a performing musician and the importance of working hard to achieve your dreams.
Staff and students said that having Misha visit was an excellent way to inspire students to actively become involved in music making.
Hannah Crook, a student on SACC’s media team, wrote a report of the visit:
On Wednesday, 9th May, Misha B from the 2011 X Factor show, visited Selston Arts and Community College on her ‘Big Dream’ school tour.
She performed to KS3 Music, Drama and Performing Arts students. Misha gave two performances including singing her new single ‘Home Run’ which she followed with a question and answer session.
One of the many questions she was asked was, ‘what advice would you give to someone who wants to be a performer?’ Misha B’s answer was: “Take risks.” This especially had an impact on myself and other students as we all want to be on stage like her.
I was lucky enough to be Misha’s runner for the day, making sure she had everything she wanted.
She was extremely nice and humble to everyone she met on the day.
She even took the time to meet music students, having photos taken and signing a few autographs.
She also took the time to have an interview with media students Tom Prewett, Hannah Beecroft and Molly Cumming.
They said: “She’s lovely and had some great advice for anyone who’s nervous - to hide your nerves with a smile.”
They also said she has an ‘amazing voice.’
It was a pleasure to have her visit our school and share the message ‘dreams come true if you believe in yourself and what you can achieve’.
