Classical beauty Myleene Klass was back in her home county yesterday to launch a concert at Norwich's Roman Catholic Cathedral where she will be appearing with children from her former schools.

The 27-year-old ex-Hear'Say singer is headlining the event in aid of the cathedral's £2m development fund.

And she told the EDP she is keeping busy not just with a second solo album of piano music but with plans to break into movies. "Straight after the concert I'll be off to Ireland for my first film role. I've been sworn to secrecy about it, but it's an international production and I play a cameo role as a piano player. I'm really thrilled."

She is appearing in the concert after Father David Ward, who has been a friend of the Klass family from Gorleston for almost 20 years, asked her to appear.

She used to play organ at the cathedral but will be concentrating on piano pieces off her debut album – which recently went gold. The choir will feature choirs from her former schools St Mary's Primary School, Gorleston and Notre Dame High in Norwich as well as the city's Notre Dame Prep and St Thomas More Primary.

Myleene said: "I get approached to do a lot of charity stuff but I really want to feel its relevant to me. It will be such an experience seeing my friends and family in the front row and all my old teachers. It'll be the first time I have played to people like that in my home county and I'll be bursting with pride. But it will also be more nerve-wracking than playing to 2000 in London."

Another album will be released around the end of this year along the same classical lines but will feature more of Myleene's vocals.

The concert is on June 24 at 7pm. Tickets at £10 for adults and £5 for children from Prelude Records in St Giles on 01603 628319 or the cathedral shop on 01603 615288.
