An Evening with Molly Hocking (Winner of the Voice 2019) and Friends

Come and see The Winner of The Voice 2019 in her home town before she heads back to London. Molly was born in St Ives and grew up singing and dancing at Kidz R Us. She performed regularly around the West Country for several years but shot to prominence after winning The Voice 2019, under the mentorship of Olly Murs. Her debut single ‘Never Love Again’ shot straight to No 1 on the iTunes chart and led her performing at British Summertime Hyde Park and supporting Olly at The O2 Arena. Molly will release her first original single when she goes back onto The Voice to perform in November, watch this space.
The acts supporting Molly Are Polly Jones and Louella Jade Eke.
Polly was Brought up with the sound of crashing waves and sandy beaches , Cornish born and bred singer/songwriter Polly jones from St.Ives brings soulful jazzy tones with power to this years tunes in the dunes. Having rocked the stage previously, she brings a fresh set of lyrically stunning tracks to the stage as well as covers that’s she’s put her own original twist too, as well as her confident yet beautifully modest presence. Taking influences from divas such as dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin and Amy Winehouse ~ her eclectic Musical knowledge and passion can be heard throughout her timeless lyrics and woeful melodies.
Louella Jade Eke is an Americana and folk singer songwriter, banjo and guitar botherer. This Cornish maid and well travelled artist is always popular. Having spent the first few years of her life falling asleep in her pram at folk sessions it was only right that she started off learning Bob Dylan songs and taking to the street to busk. Her songs are deep, dark and soulful and her deceptively well spoken accent that babbles between songs makes for an endearing performance. Ranging from driving guitar rhythms, twinkly fingerpicking and courageous caterwauling to gentle melancholic melodies, a rising star with cream on top.

Testimonials

WOW We thought we were seeing a professional show the quality of this performance was outstanding the costumes were beautiful and the whole theatre experience was magical.  The snow queen was the most beautiful character I have ever seen and boy could she sing.  The Granny had us in stitches all evening our sides ache today, the whole performance was worthy of a professional stage we loved it and will be back next year.  Well done

AUDIENCE MEMBER, SNOW QUEEN (DECEMBER 2018)

I’ve been visiting Kidz for over 20 years, ever since I was a young child – I can’t explain how incredible the performances are every time! I have never been to a bad performance – the talent of every child on stage is evident from the opening note, and it’s fantastic to see the performers grow every year.

We saw the Snow Queen last night, and you could tell the entire audience had a fantastic time, from ages 2 to 92!

A trip to St Ives isn’t complete without going to Kidz R Us.
