Announcing: Rebecca Trehearn will sing The Little Match Girl!

As you definitely know by now, we’re raising money to make an album of Xmas Factor: All Stars!

We’re really excited that joining us for the album will be Olivier Award-winning musical theatre star Rebecca Trehearn, who will be singing Darren Clark’s song “The Little Match Girl”.

Perhaps best known for Olivier Award-winning performance in Showboat, Rebecca’s also been in the West End wit City of Angels and Ghost, among others, and we’re delighted to have her joining us!

Rebecca first met “The Little Match Girl”‘s writer working on The Wicker Husband, a musical by Darren. She had this to say:

I first met Darren whilst working on his musical, The Wicker Husband and fell in love with his music. I consider him an incredibly exciting talent who’s work truly deserves a wider platform. This is such a tough industry to gain a foothold in and supporting new writing is something I feel very strongly about, so I’m delighted to be recording this song! Please back our kickstarter if you can, every little helps!

Rebecca trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.
