Talented young singer Zara Hall has clinched a coveted role in a promotional video for a new children’s cartoon film.
The ten-year-old will star in a pop video for the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks movie, to be released later this month.
The Ackworth Bell Lane Primary School pupil is one of just six youngsters from across the country to perform in the advert.
As part of the competition, Zara’s mum Diane Hall filmed a clip of her singing the film’s soundtrack and uploaded it onto the internet.
Weeks later she received an email from the film’s producer to say she was one of winners of the competition and would feature as part of the video.
Mrs Hall, 40, said: “I’m so proud of her. As a parent you never like to think that you’re pushing your child into anything but this is what she wants to do.
“She has never stopped singing since she first found her voice at about ten months old.
“I know people might think I’m biased but she really does have a fantastic voice for her age.”
Filming for the video will take place in London on September 25 and 26.
It will then be shown on MTV, Nickelodeon, Nick Junior and Comedy Central as well as on the internet.
Mrs Hall, of Mount Pleasant, added: “I don’t think Zara ever dreamt of winning.
“She just thought it was another chance to show off what she could do.
“But she’s really excited now. In her mind this is the first step towards becoming a singer.
“It doesn’t matter where we are, she always wants to sing and be the centre of attention.”
Zara has already won two national talent competitions.
Mrs Hall added: “She will be out in the garden singing and the neighbours will come out and ask if I’ve entered her into Britain’s Got Talent.
“Our neighbour will purposely come out in the garden when Zara is singing because she loves her voice.”
