A soprano singer from Norwich says she is honoured to lead the city in a night of celebrations for the Queen's 90th birthday today.

Emma Nuule, 29, of Drayton Road, is set to lead the crowds in a rendition of Happy Birthday outside Norwich City Hall on Thursday evening.

She will also perform two other songs and will finish off the day of celebrations with a rendition of Land of Hope a Glory.

She said: 'It's an honour to sing for the Queen's birthday and it makes me feel so much more professional. I can't put it in to words how great it is.'

Celebrations start at outside City Hall, which will be lit up in red, white and blue for the occasion, at 6.30pm with a message from the Lord Mayor of Norwich.

The soprano has even taken fashion tips from Her Majesty for the event and will wear a powder blue dress in homage to her as it is her favourite colour.
