Una bids to go from Carrowmenagh to Broadway 04.04.16

A TALENTED teenager is hoping people in Inishowen will get behind her as she bids to perform in a Broadway musical.
Una Morrison (18) who is from Derry and has strong Moville connections, is the only Irish entrant out of 200 American hopefuls in the 'Give A Girl Her Chance' competition.
She needs as many votes as possible to make it through the preliminary stage of the contest before voting closes this Wednesday, April 6.
The winner will get to sing 'The Secret of Happiness' following a performance of the Daddy Long Legs musical at the Davenport Theatre in New York later this year.
Tony-Award winning director of Les Misérables, John Caird, is the director of the musical, which is based on the classic novel which inspired the Fred Astaire movie of the 1950s.
"This is a massive dream of mine and if I get through the preliminary round I may get a chance to perform in New York," said Una, who has performed at the Derry Feis many times. She said one of her earliest performances as a child was in Carrowmenagh Community Centre.
"Getting through the preliminary round stage is entirely based on public votes. I am the only Irish entrant into this competition," she added.
