To his teachers and fellow pupils at Parkgate Infants School in north Watford, Aryan Faraboushehri is no different than any other seven-year-old.Except for one particular skill that makes him outstanding – his singing voice. And now he is set to wow crowds at this year’s Woodside Talent Show.
Certainly his talent has impressed music teacher Jo Stevens who runs the Music Gym sessions at the Orbital Community Centre in Haines Way.
Ms Stevens, a professional singer and songwriter herself, said: “When Aryan joined our singing class we were all stunned by this fabulous voice coming from this little boy.
“He has recently taken up guitar lessons with us and we can’t wait to see him singing and playing guitar on stage.” Aryan will get his chance to perform before a live audience at Woodside Talent Show at the Church of the Nazarene in North Watford on Saturday (April 28). The song he has chosen for his debut is Next to Me by Emeli Sande.
His family are not surprised at Aryan’s ability. His father Masoud, an administrator at the BUPA Hospital in Bushey , said his son had been listening to music since the day he was born. He said:”My wife Cathy, who was a member of a local church choir, always sang to him as he was growing up and he learned to put sounds and music together instinctively.
“He’s a lively boy and has no inhibitions about performing in public. “I look forward to seeing the reaction of the audience at the Woodside show.”
Aryan will no doubt be getting full encouragement from his three sisters who keep up the family’s music skills by playing the piano.
