SONGS by chart-topping artists were belted out with style at a school karaoke fundraiser.

Six talented students at Crofton School in Stubbington sang tunes by Adele, Ellie Goulding and The Script to a packed hall, during their charity week.

Their audience paid £1 each to hear the fun renditions and a panel of student judges voted 16-year-old Ellie Minshuland overall winner.

She wowed everyone with her take on Goulding’s version of Elton John’s Your Song.

Bob Milliken, an RE teacher who is in charge of Crofton’s charity week in aid of Cancer Research UK, Help for Heroes, Parkinson’s UK and Hearing Dogs for Deaf, said: ‘The karaoke finalists were fantastic and everyone had a great time. The atmosphere was lively and students and teachers who came to watch were very supportive.

‘Karaoke is a brave undertaking so it was lovely to hear cheers and applause from the audience.’

He added: ‘We do charity week every year and karaoke is definitely a highlight.’

So far this week the school has done a sponsored walk, cycle swim, ten-pin bowling and radio controlled cars.
