Sean and his brother - Theodore my other nominee are young people that are thriving and demonstrating excellence in playing musical instruments - both play the Piano and may be other instruments which they will be able to tell you. Sean and Theo play in the church - RCCG The Master’s Sanctuary and they both gave a performance to honour Mothers during Mother’s Day Celebration in church and they also come to church early and play the piano to set in an atmosphere of worship. Awesome young people and Sean in particular is very unassuming. I hope their nomination will be voted in as this will truly encourage them especially in the things of God and charity as selfless givers.
Elnathan has demonstrated an excellence and mastery of his academic studies since starting homeschooling in October, 2018, especially reading and the violin. He began his Phonics course in October 2018, and by February, he graduated from it and began fluently reading books. The same can be said of his violin progress. Elnathan started private tuition in January 2019, and by February, he was sight reading, and has performed at two concerts so far, currently preparing for his third in December. Elnathan-Asher is exceptional in mine and other people's opinion, not just because of his scholastic achievements, but his mental fortitude, his beautiful extroverted personality, and strong confidence in his unique person, in spite of having a father whom he has never met, whom he yearns for, yet does not contact him. This is a boy who took the courage to reach out to his father on the phone and asked him why he does not contact him and is not there for him, and ended up getting shunned with the phone dropped on him. He has learned to cry and talk out his pain to his mother and sister, and turn that energy into something positive by excelling in all that he has put his hands to. I believe Elnathan Asher Hudson deserves to win this award to celebrate him even when others (including family) have turned their backs on him.

Olivia has been singing since she could speak having her first solo at her nursery. She has participated in a lot of local productions including playing Annie in phoenix players Annie and numerous pantos for griffin players. Having being seen by lots of local charities, Olivia has been asked to use her voice to help make others smile included within these charities were nicu l&d hospital, Macmillan, numerous performances for relay for life, high sheriff of Bedfordshire; raising much needed money for crime beat , rotary club and she also sang at little Birmingham farm bringing smiles all round. Olivia recently won an online singing competition which has enabled her to audition for voice kids following on from this Olivia came runner up advanced vocalist with Luton music services and was recognised of her talent. This year due to also becoming runner up at Luton talent quest, Olivia got the opportunity to perform at Luton mela where she was so well received, they have asked her to come back. The reason I would like to nominate Olivia is her singing has not only been a joy for others but for herself having suffered continuous bullying and ending up extremely poorly undergoing hospital treatment and counselling, singing got her through. It was her one joy and knowing this she hopes her voice will help others Olivia has two further charity singing engagements coming up. She is a sensational young singer and a talent for the future.
Additional statement for Olivia
I met Olivia just over 2 years ago, while she was taking part in our Local Amateur Dramatics Society Pantomime. I became friends with the family very quickly and the relationship grew from there. I remember seeing a video that Olivia recorded where she sang Never Enough from The Greatest Showman (which is an incredibly difficult song anyway) and she sang it so beautifully that I knew there was going to be something that she could help me with. The year I met Olivia, I was diagnosed with a Rare Cancer, which I am now in remission for, so I host and organise a lot of events to raise money for both Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support. In September 2018, I was part of the organising committee for CRUK Relay for Life, being put in charge of organising the entertainment. I knew straight away that I wanted Olivia to be part of it as I knew she would be a great asset to have in our entertainment schedule. She didn’t disappoint, singing 5 solos on a large stage to the general public. At that event we raised in total just over £22,000. Her performance went down so well, that when I organised a personal charity concert to raise money for Macmillan in the November, with a very select few performers, Olivia again was one of my first choices. She sang a beautiful solo rendition of ‘It means Beautiful’ from the musical Everybody’s Talking about Jamie and joined in superbly with a much older ‘cast’ in the several ensemble numbers. This event raised approximately £1500 for charity, and once again, her performance went down a storm. She was always the life and soul of rehearsals, despite knowing the trouble that she was going through at school through major problems with bullying. She is set to perform again at this years Relay for Life this coming weekend, where we are sure to break £30,000 raised. This means that in the space of a year, thanks to help from Olivia, these 3 events have raised over £50,000 for charity. Taking her amazing singing out of the question, Olivia is a beautiful person both inside and out, and I genuinely feel honoured to know her as well as I do. For a person of her age, she is incredibly wise and one of the strongest and bravest people I know, always pushing through every challenge that life throws at her. She is an asset to her local community and brightens a room just by walking into it.
