Katie was so nervous, it was the debut of her first performance as a singer and her whole family was there watching including her two best-friends: Lilly and Autumn. Hands shaking, she walked up on stage trying not to fall over with her trembling legs.
But as the music started, Katie couldn't help but feel relaxed and let loose into the song, a million dreams from her favourite film: the greatest showman.
Holding on that final note felt like holding on to the last ever piece of her freedom. All of a sudden a ripple of applause faded into a reality. Opening my eyes, all she could see were people on their feet cheering for her; She had a standing ovation.
