Luan Hockley, a singer from Dullingham who auditioned for The Voice on the BBC has come together with other auditionees to record a charity single.
30 year old Luanne auditioned in front of thousands of people and The Voice coaches Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones, Will.I.Am and Danny O’Donoghue on the BBC singing programme.
Luan was not picked to join any of the teams but the mum of two is releasing her first single as part of Full Circle, a group of 20 singers who also auditioned for the Voice.
Their cover of Yolande Adams’ I Believe, a song featured in the Jessica Alba film Honey, was recorded at the Blueprint Studios in Manchester.
Luan has been working for ten years as a professional singer in pubs and clubs across Suffolk and said: “We’re all like-minded people. It’s great to be doing something that we all love doing.
“I think the single sounds great. Everyone has put in so much hard work. I’m really proud and would love to see it do well.”
The Full Circle project was arranged by auditionee Paul Stuart Davies. The single will raise money for Derby-based charity Me & Dee which helps terminally ill people and their families.
Luan said: “The work they do is absolutely fantastic, giving families a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s great to be able to contribute in some way.”
