Jamelia wants schools to Sing Up

Jamelia

You could be spending lots more time singing at school if pop star Jamelia gets her way.

She's backing a new plan called Sing Up that hopes to bring more music into primary schools in England.

The government has said it will spend millions on new instruments and singing lessons, including a year of music lessons for every primary school pupil.

There will also be an online songbook and lots more choirs, orchestras and other bands.

Jamelia said: "Singing in a class is something I got a great deal from as a child - it really helped to build up my confidence and taught me how to better express myself.

"It's crucial that kids today learn how to find their voice and realise how much fun they can have through singing."
