A GROUP of girls from the Motherwell-based Jazzart UK club are on a mission for stardom after being crowned the Best Glee Club in Scotland.

The girls, known as Raveheart, beat off stiff competition in the recent Comic Relief Does Glee contest in Glasgow.

The youngsters then had their chance to shine on BBC1 in the live final, but were pipped at the post despite their obvious talent and enthusiasm and had to settle for a runners-up place.

Jazzart director Sheridan Nicol said: “To be part of Comic Relief does Glee has been a wonderful experience.

“Starting in September in Glasgow, then at the BBC TV Centre in December and then throughout this year leading up to the finals was both demanding and rewarding.

“The girls have worked tirelessly to reach this stage and I am so proud of their achievements and the dedication of all our teachers and tutors on creating this wonderful Scottish group.

“To be voted Scotland’s best Glee club and runners-up nationally is a great honour for Jazzart.

“Raveheart will also be part of the forthcoming Calvin Harris Project which is being filmed this month and will be in the recording studio working on a new single very soon.”
