A teenage Cambuslang singer has hit the right notes - after her busking impressed a restaurant boss enough that he asked her to sing for customers.
Trinity High pupil Rebekah Kirk (14), of MacArthur Wynd, was performing as part of the Merchant City Festival, as one of the Glasgow bash’s ‘official buskers’.
Her performance outside the Citation restaurant caught the ears of staff, who headed outside to catch the talented teenager.
Rebekah’s mum Lesley explained: “The manageress was very impressed, and then called out the owner to listen to her.
“Rebekah was supposed to perform again later on, but the rain was so bad that she couldn’t go out again.
“She was speaking to Citation, and they asked her inside and showed her the baby grand pianos that they have.
“She was really excited to see them, and they asked if she wanted to perform every week there.
“She’s just started, and is really thrilled.”
Rebekah will now perform at the restaurant on Fridays from 6pm until 8pm.
It’s the latest development in the singer’s career.
The Reformer previously reported on her early success in talent contests two years ago.
Now she’s changed up her sound and is writing her own material, as well as putting online covers of songs by the likes of Nirvana.
Two of her original songs, Ocean Lullaby and Who Has Your Heart, have reached the semi-finals of the UK Songwriting Contest, a competition aimed at helping new and emerging songwriters.
Lesley added: “She’s now got a much more stripped back sound than before - she started playing the guitar and piano about 18 months ago, because she didn’t want to be using backing tracks
