She may only be 13-years-old but that hasn't stopped Breeze Redwine from releasing her first single and music video.

The talented singer from Starston has been uploading videos of live performances and covers of songs on YouTube for nearly two years. But her original song, Courage, is now available to buy on iTunes and Amazon and the video has already been viewed more than 3,000 times on YouTube.

Breeze's mother, Jackie, said she is very proud of the teenager.

She said: 'It's just amazing. We never thought it would take off like this. A lot of people have given their time up to help. We're very lucky a lot of local people have been involved in the making of it.'

The video was filmed in Ipswich by Taylor Made Portraits and the song was recorded at The Mill Recording Studio in Winfarthing. The youngster's vocal and guitar coach Lisa Redford wrote the song which is about bullying.

Mrs Redwine said: 'Breeze has suffered from bullying, which I think a lot of children who perform do. So it's a very personal song to her. It was written for her by Lisa because it was something that touched her too.'

The youngster, who has vocal training at the Norwich Singing School, has a busy and exciting year ahead. She will be travelling to Long Beach, California, in July to take part in the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCPA). The youngster will represent Great Britain at the event which attracts contestants from more than 50 countries.
