Young Swansea singer to showcase talent at city centre event

A rising Swansea singing star will soon be showcasing her voice at a major city centre event.

Nataya Bree

Nataya Bree, a 14-year-old Bishop Vaughan Comprehensive School pupil from Treboeth, is among the performers who will take to the stage during the 'Our Abertawe: Celebrating Swansea Together' event on Saturday March 4.
 
Also including the returning AberDewi festival, it's hoped the Swansea Council organised event will create positive connections and forge stronger relationships between Swansea's growing, diverse, multi-cultural population.
 
More than 2,200 people subscribe to Nataya's channel on YouTube. She'll be singing in Castle Square at noon, 3pm and 5pm.
 
Lasting from 11am to 6pm, the overall event will also include music, food, dance and workshops from Swansea, Wales and around the world.
 
Other features of the event include the AberDewi parade through the city centre, as well as mass singalongs of Calon Lân and the Welsh national anthem. Street busking and performances from a number of other Welsh bands and choirs have also been arranged.
 
Cllr Rob Stewart, Swansea Council Leader, said: "As well as celebrating Swansea's international make-up, this event will also champion modern Welsh life in both Swansea and Wales, so it's great that we're able to give local people like Nataya a platform to showcase their talents.
 
"Swansea communities have so much in common, including our love for the city, but we're also proud to embrace one-another's differences. We hope this event will bring Swansea even closer together than ever before by combining activities that celebrate our Welsh heritage as well as our 21st century, multi-cultural communities.
 
"The theme of togetherness is also reflected in the organisation of this event, with a huge number of organisations involved that include the council, Communities First, Menter Iaith Abertawe, our universities and other partners in the public and third sectors."
 
Stalls and activities will form part of the event too, as well as an exhibition celebrating the history of Swansea's cultural and ethnic diversity.
 
Local schools are also involved in the day. Several junior schools are designing, making and entering a dragon competition - the winner of which will head the parade. Pupils from Ysgol Gyfun Gŵyr, Ysgol Gyfun Bryntawe and Bishop Vaughan Comprehensive School are taking part in an Apprentice-style competition, which involves raising money on the day for charities for the homeless.

Students from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David are helping create a 'My Swansea' video to be played at the event on Castle Square's big screen, featuring students and residents sharing their own thoughts of Swansea and what the city means to them.
