Kylie Minogue 'proud' of Oxford charity StudyVox

Kylie Minogue with student Emma McGann and award
Student Emma McGann described the experience as surreal

Pop singer Kylie Minogue was guest of honour in a small Oxfordshire village to hand out awards.

The star, who is patron of the StudyVox student bursary charity, posed for photographs and chatted to winners at its headquarters in East Hendred.

Telling fans she was "very proud" to be the charity's patron, the 41-year-old was then entertained by student Emma McGann, 19, who scooped a music award.

A friend of the star set up the student support charity three years ago.

The Australian singer stood at the front of the crowd to listen to the student perform.

Ms McGann said: "Surreal is the word to describe it, but at the same time it was amazing.

"I didn't expect Kylie to come out and to stand there dancing away to our track. It looked like she was really enjoying it."

Ms Minogue spoke with the four students who won financial bursary awards after registering with the StudyVox social-networking site and winning a raffle online.
