An opera singer from Broadstairs has teamed up with children from Ramsgate Holy Trinity Primary School to record a cover of her Christmas charity single Gaudete.
Nikita Faie worked with students in grades 4-6 from Trinity Choir following a successful workshop at the school last year.
The 25-year-old is a songwriter who is studying opera singing at Masters level on a scholarship to Trinity Laban Conservatory in London.
She specialized in film composition and has experience touring and recording with The Overnight Angels.
Nikita creates orchestral pop/alternative pop which sometimes features her operatic voice.
She defends social issues through her music. In 2020, her Christmas single Gaudete raised £500 for Pilgrims Hospices at JustGiving and her single Human Zoo is currently raising money for Sea Shepherd UK.
The former Dane Court student, who joined her first rock band aged 12, said: “Gaudete explores a bittersweet mix of hope, joy and sadness that many of us feel at this time of year.
“I felt inspired to raise money for Pilgrims Hospices because they do such brilliant work supporting people with life-threatening illnesses.”
The school, based in Dumpton, recently received another outstanding rating from Ofsted with a special mention for its choir.
