any­more.

“She’s lik­ing more rock bands - that might be the in­flu­ence of me and her dad, be­cause we’ve al­ways loved rock mu­sic, so she’s had the likes of the Foo Fight­ers play­ing around her as she’s been grow­ing up!

“There’s been re­ally good feed­back to some of her orig­i­nal songs - Jim Gel­latly was prais­ing it on Amaz­ing Ra­dio, and there’s been online ra­dio sta­tions who’ve played it, in­clud­ing some in Amer­ica.

“We’re hop­ing there might be more in­ter­est com­ing from Amer­ica too- she’s pretty pleased about how it’s go­ing.”

The teenager is hav­ing to jug­gle her singing ca­reer with life at Trin­ity, while she’ll be tem­po­rar­ily out of ac­tion in Oc­to­ber due to un­der­go­ing a hos­pi­tal op­er­a­tion.

But her proud mum is sure she’ll be back soon.

“Re­bekah has Id­io­pathic sco­l­io­sis (a spinal con­di­tion) so she’s hav­ing an op­er­a­tion, but will hope­fully be singing again in De­cem­ber or Jan­uary.

“She’s so ded­i­cated to it, but is bal­anc­ing it with her school work and be­ing a teenager pretty well.

“It’s an exam year, so the mu­sic is a close sec­ond be­hind all that.

“She re­ally loves that though - she’s got a mu­sic room that she just dis­ap­pears into and writes and plays songs.”
