Danielle started attending Singing Lessons when she was just 9 years old with a Local Teacher in Crosby, Mr Gerald Hunt. He encouraged Danielle to compete in local festivals and perform in concerts to help build up her confidence. In 2001, at the tender age of 11, Danielle made her television debut performing Cat Steven's Version of 'Morning has broken' on BBC's Songs of Praise after being discovered by a Producer from the BBC. Later that year, she auditioned for the Junior School of the Royal Northern College of Music to which she was successful and began her studies every Saturday studying Singing and Piano.
At just 13 years old, Danielle became Runner Up to (now) Opera Star, Kathryn Rudge in the prestigious singing competition 'Merseyside Young Singer of the Year'.
In 2007 at the age of 17, Danielle made her debut at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall performing with the RLPO in the 'Spirit of Christmas Concerts' under the direction of Professor Ian Tracey.
Since 2009, Danielle has been invited to sing at the Civic Events for the City of Liverpool which have included performances for Lord Heseltine, Late Everton Legend Dave Hickson, Ken Dodd and our Armed Forces. Danielle is a great Supporter of our Armed Forces and has had the honour of performing at Liverpool's Service of Remembrance with an attendance of over 10,000 people.
Danielle is a great supporter of Jospice and in 2012 was delighted to be invited to perform with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall in Jospice's Golden Jubilee Concert under the direction of International Opera Singer Rosa Mannion and Professor Ian Tracey. Later that year, Danielle was thrilled to be asked to join Sony's Classical Trio, The Priests in Concert at the Metropolitan Cathedral, Liverpool.
2013 began with a performance on board HMS Illustrious, which was to be the last time the Ship visited the City as she was due to be decommissioned later that year. Danielle also had the honour of performing with the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines, Portsmouth at a Commemoration Concert for the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic held at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. The next day followed with a Service held at Liverpool Cathedral to which Danielle performed Live on BBC One in attendance of HRH Princess Royal. Video can be viewed below.
Danielle is in great demand as a soloist locally and internationally but still gives up her time to help support the charities that are very close to her heart. So much so, in 2015 she was announced as the First Ambassador for North West Cancer Research, to which she is very proud to be.
2015 was an incredibily busy year for Danielle which saw her perform not only internationally for Cunard but locally too as she was asked to perform during the Historic '3 Queens' Event in Liverpool. Danielle was recently invited back to perform with Sony's International Classical Trio 'The Priests' at the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool, followed by supporting Legendary Comedian Ken Dodd in his Happiness Show.
2016 was a significant Year for Liverpool as the City held a vigil for the 96 Hillsborough Victims after the families of the 96 finally got the Justice they deserved. The City coming together outside St George's Hall was a moment that will go down in history as the whole of Liverpool sang 'you'll never walk alone'. The vigil was broadcast live all over the world including Sky News, ITV, BBC One. Danielle sang a 'Stirring rendition of Abide with me' which can be seen here: https://youtu.be/K4WcNUuoTdw
