Chloe Coyle is on her way to stardom with an appearance scheduled in the final of the RTE All Ireland Talent Show. Spurring her on to success, the Northern Ireland Assembly Committee for Culture, Arts and Leisure had a preview of the Castlederg teenager’s performance.

The Committee invited Chloe to perform a few songs in Parliament Buildings before Sunday’s live final. During the visit, Chloe showcased her talent in front of Members and Assembly staff by performing an excellent rendition of ‘She Moves Through the Fair’.

Chair of the Committee, Barry McElduff, said: “It was fantastic to meet Chloe and hear her sing today. On behalf of the Committee I would like to wish her the very best of luck for the competition. Chloe has an amazing voice and talent and hopefully that will shine through during Sunday’s live final.”

Chloe’s mentor during the RTE talent competition has been former MEP and Eurovision winner Dana.

  1. Thirteen year old Chloe has been trained in classical music since the age of eight and will sing a short traditional Irish piece on Sunday during the live show.
