NACN Singing Academy

Academy Youth Leaders

Zoe Longridge

My name is Zoe, I live in Newtownabbey and I am 16 years old. I don’t really have a preferred music type / genre as I think most of them are good but if I were to choose I think that I would go for 80s / 90s music. My inspiration when it comes to singing would be my family and friends rather than a professional singer as they encourage me when I sing. 

Amber Beckinsale

I'm Amber. I currently attain a Grade 5 Distinction in Classical singing with The Associated Board Of The Royal Schools Of Music and will be completing my Music Theory along with completing my Grade 8 Musical Theatre in November along with my Pop and Rock Singing Grades. I have been fortunate to perform at many prestigious events such as in Custom House Square at Belfast Pride 2017, St Anne’s Cathedral where I was backed by The Dublin Orchestra, The Stormont Parliament Building and Belfast City Hall. I have received Gold and Silver medals in competitive events such as Holywood Music Festival. I attend Belfast School Of Performing Arts and NACN Theatre Company. I have recently performed the role of Alice in Alice In Wonderland along with previous roles including Gabriella in High School Musical, Mrs Johnston in Blood Brothers and Penny Pingleton in Hairspray. NACN gifts me the opportunity to embrace my strong passion of music at a non-competitive level allowing me to exhibit myself as an individual while gaining confidence throughout. The NACN Singing Academy also presents to me what I can accomplish as a young performer while exploring each genre of music and crafting myself as an artist. 

Emma Hosick

Hi! My name is Emma, I am 15 years old and I live in Newtownabbey. My favourite genre of music is kind of bluesy and jazzy music. I think my inspiration would really come from my family and drive they provide me to do my best and not to give up. 

Amy Hosick

Hi! My name is Amy and I live in Newtonabbey. If I had to say who I listen to the most it would have to be Billie Eilish, Rex Orange County and Khalid. My inspiration is people. I love seeing people smile and truly happy, and I love singing so if I get somewhere with that I can see more happy people.

Carly Richmond 

Hi my name is Carly and I am 13 years old and I have been singing since I was 5 and I started NACN Singing Academy when I was 11. Through NACN I have gained confidence from singing at different venues with an audience. I really wanted to be a singer when I was younger and so this inspired me to keep singing. My favourite singer would be Ed Sheeran and I love his songs. The songs I like to sing are slow and high. I really enjoy singing and I want to keep up with it.
