Fif­teen-year-old Rachel from Donard to be on Late Late Toy Show

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A WEST Wick­low teenager is brim­ming with ex­cite­ment ahead of her ap­pear­ance on the Late Late Toy Show.

Rachel Coyne (15), right, from Donard was asked to au­di­tion for a spot on the most pop­u­lar Christ­mas show in the coun­try in re­cent weeks and was told straight away that she would ap­pear on the show.

Daugh­ter of Bren­dan and Karen Coyne, Rachel’s tal­ent was spot­ted by the RTE pro­duc­tion team on a video she posted on­line.

‘They asked Rachel to au­di­tion and she found out on the same day that she got a spot. She was on it when she was 11 so they sort of knew her,’ Rachel’s dad Bren­dan said.

On that oc­ca­sion, Rachel wowed the au­di­ence with her ren­di­tion Sam Smyth’s ‘Stay with Me’ and show host Ryan Tubridy made ref­er­ence to singer Hozier and that great per­form­ers were com­ing out of Wick­low.

While Rachel must keep her 2018 per­for­mance de­tails a se­cret un­til the live show,’ Bren­dan says she is very much look­ing for­ward to it, and that her fam­ily is very proud of her.

Rachel stud­ies mu­sic at St Kevin’s Com­mu­nity Col­lege, Dunlavin and is a mem­ber of the West Wick­low Choir.
