A former Tring Park School pupil will compete in the regional finals of a national singing competition on Saturday.

Amani Hussain, 14, will perform in the Teen Star regional finals in Hayes, singing Justin Bieber hit Boyfriend – but with a twist.

Amani, a pupil at the Tring performing arts school between the ages of eight and 12, will change some of the lyrics and perform a rap she has written herself.

She said: “Hopefully that way people will remember it.”

Amani, who now goes to Pipers Corner School in High Wycombe but lives with her family in Chivery, just outside Tring, said: “I’d like to think I’ll get through, but even if I don’t, it will have been a really good experience.

“All my friends and family have been really supportive.”

Mum Roxanne said: “I’m very proud of Amani. She’s always loved singing from a very young age.”

Amani is already a star on YouTube, where she posts videos of her singing under the name ThatAmaniLiaGirl. To see her in action, visit www.youtube.com/user/thatamaniliagirl.
