17 year old Sophii Negus debuts at Glastonbury Festival with new song in aid of children’s heart charity

talent 1.4 (126)Singer songwriter Sophii Negus will debut at Glastonbury Festival this year with a 45 minute set which will feature the newly recorded “White Noise” as well as former releases “Look to the Stars”, “We Will Never Be” and “Too Young to Care”. This highly talented 17 year old won a music scholarship to Millfield School in 2012. Sophii’s amazing musical ability began to emerge when she started piano lessons at the age of seven. She took up guitar aged 11 and her songwriting evolved as a natural progression. Sophii won the ‘Some-r-set 4 Talent’ final in April last year. 17 other contestants competed in the final which took place at Playhouse House Theatre in Weston Super Mare. The final was judged by Michael Eavis and three other music Industry professionals. Sophii’s prize is to perform at this year’s Glastonbury Festival. Michael Eavis said: “Sophii was the judges choice as we were keen to find and support a young musician who could write their own music and play their own instrument.”  He also added, “Sophii did just that and I think she will be very popular at Glastonbury Festival 2013”. Her latest release, “White Noise” will benefit the children’s heart charity Little Hearts Matter. The charity offers support and information to families of children affected by congenital heart conditions. Sophii’s elder brother, Jack, suffers from a congenital heart condition called Hypo Plastic Left Heart Syndrome. These complex heart conditions require open-heart surgery within days, or even hours of being born and many face a heart transplant as they move into adult life. All proceeds from Sophii’s release will help Little Hearts Matter to provide Preparation for Hospital Packs, which help parents to prepare children for surgery and hospital stays, reducing the fear and confusion they can feel. See Sophii live at 10.30am on Sunday June 30th at the Avalon Café at the Glastonbury Festival. Sophii Negus’ tracks are available exclusively on iTunes. All proceeds go to the charity Little Hearts Matter. For more information see www.sophiinegus.com or contact Sophii at sophii@sophiinegus.com
