As well as performing her latest track to an appreciative audience, she answered questions from enthusiastic and excited students and encouraged them to work hard and to show determination to achieve their dreams.

Sherelle told staff and students: “It’s great to be back at Stockland Green where I have so many happy memories.  The friends I made here are still my friends now and inspired me to become successful.”

Her talent led to her being chosen to represent her home city of Birmingham in the handover ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Her smash hit ‘Go the Distance’ tells the story of tackling challenges head on while staying true to yourself and the people around you.
