A musician has won the chance to perform in front of 10,000 people in London.
Cliff Park pupil, Roddy 'Ryan' Brewer, 15, won the opportunity to open the Transformation Trust's 'Rock Assembly' in front of 10,000 people on Thursday at Wembley Arena.
As part of the event, a national competition was held to find a student band or artist to open the concert. The application process involved students submitting examples of their live performances, as well as putting together a detailed plan outlining how they would successfully market their first album.
Roddy, who has been singing since the age of six, fought off tough competition, with the judging panel being impressed with his strong stage presence.
Roddy has built up his confidence and talent through entertaining holidaymakers at Potters Leisure Resort in Hopton-On-Sea and performing with his dad in a live band every Sunday in front of an audience of over 400 people.
