It has been a pretty crazy few months for Hannah Berney.

The Exeter Uni student, who began singing in popular Exeter venues such as Mama Stones and Firehouse, had a successful audition on the BBC One Show ‘The Voice,’ and has recently made it through the next round to the live shows.

If the fame and stardom associated with that show wasn’t enough, Hannah has also been offered by invitation to sing for the Queen during her jubilee visit to Exeter. The Queen is set to arrive in Exeter on May 2nd and will officially open the Forum.


Details of how students can get a glimpse of the Queen are set to be released closer to the date.

Hannah spoke exclusively to the Drop and told us ‘I am so honoured to be singing for the Queen, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, and for it to happen at the age of 21 is a shock. I can’t thank the Uni for inviting me to do so.’

Just a few weeks ago Hannah was waiting for her big break in the music career as she performed in the popular live music venue Mama Stones.


A couple of weeks later she is now awaiting a live TV performance before millions of viewers on the BBC. Plus, she is singing to the Queen, the grand prize offered to winners of the ITV rival show 'Britain's Got Talent'. Not a bad few weeks.
