An inspirational singer visited a Lowestoft high school to speak about overcoming challenges and adversity in everyday life.
Challan Carmichael performed for year 10 students at Ormiston Denes Academy – with pupils from Poplars, Woods Loke and Corton Primary schools also in attendance.
Mr Carmichael took the time to take photographs and sign autographs for the students – as he brought his Step by Step national UK Schools Tour to the area.
During his visit, the south London born singer also spoke to students about developing their talents, having a vision in life and helping to achieve their goals.
Along with the performance, there was also time for a question and answer session for the children to be involved in. Ormiston Denes Academy hosted the event last Friday, with youngsters visiting the school on Yarmouth Road to enjoy the entertainment.
