HANNAH Norcott is a 14-year-old Grade 9 pupil at St Maryand#039;s DSG in Kloof. She is also a talented singer and musician with a love for music, drama and singing and has been attending singing lessons for six years.

Hannah also plays the guitar and keyboard and is in the school choir and worship band. Over and above that, she is a song writer and has recorded a music CD which was influenced by her training with vocal coach, Malie Kelly, and SA Idols winner, Heinz Winckler.

Hannah has been part of the Young Performers cast for the past two years, performing in Footloose last year and Soldiers in the City at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre this year. Like her mother, Cindy Norcott, founder of the Robin Hood Foundation, Hannah has a heart for people and giving back and often sings at charity events.

Her performance of Hallelujah at the Robin Hood Foundation’s Entrepreneurs 4 Africa conference in 2013 left 400 delegates breathless.

Hannah is thrilled to be performing at the foundation’s Future Women of Africa conference on 28 and 29 July at CityHill Church in Hillcrest. The conference is free to 1 000 previously disadvantaged women between the ages of 15 and 36.
