A father and son who run a garage business have helped a young award-winning singer by buying her a PA system so she can perform at gigs.
Rob Vincent and his father Stephen, who run Vincent’s Garage in Rushall near Diss, booked Breeze Redwine to sing at their car treasure hunt.
When the garage owners heard the 14-year-old perform, they were so bowled over they decided to get her the equipment so she wouldn’t have to borrow it.
Rob Vincent, who wants to see Breeze go far, said: “When I asked if Breeze would sing at our event, her mother said Breeze didn’t have the equipment - so we had to loan some.
“She impressed us so much we decided that Vincent’s Garage could support Breeze by being a sponsor and getting her the PA system.”
The talented singer from Starston was Teen Star 2015 pre-teen national champion and won at the 2016 World Championships of Performing Arts in Hollywood.
She has twice been on BBC Introducing Track of the Week in Norfolk, and has performed at the Norfolk Show and with The Garage Theatre at UEA.
The teenager, who would one day like to be able to make a living out of music, describes her music as country rock.
She lists her current inspiration as Shawn Mendes, whose meteoric rise began with his postings on YouTube.
She also likes the American rock band Imagine Dragons, which hails from Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Country rock is great because you get to move to it - I like dancing a lot too,” the singer said.
“The inspiration for my songs comes from my life experiences and some of those have been about being bullied.”
Mother Jacqui Redwine says bullying has affected her daughter and it has taken Breeze a lot of courage to keep going.
“I think it is incredible that she does this at 14 years of age - people think you just write a song and sing it but there’s a lot more to it than that,” she said.
Breeze’s next EP comes out on Friday, July 21. Visit breezeredwinemusic.com
