A singer/songwriter who appeared on the BBC flagship show The Voice paid a visit to a school in Gosfield.

Barney Holmes, who was one half of the duo De’ Vide that appeared on the show two years ago dropped in to lead a music workshop at Gosfield School before pupils performed a private concert.

Holmes helped the group of 12-15 year-olds create a song which they then performed to an audience at the end of the day.

Fiona Cross, head of performing arts at the school, said: “It has been an amazing and inspirational day for everybody involved.

“It has raised the profile of performing arts at Gosfield and, perhaps more importantly, given the students a fun yet thought-provoking start to what could be a new career.”

De’ Vide were made up of Holmes and rapper Lex Flowers.

The pair, from Ipswich, were eliminated in the battle rounds in 2013.
