CHART topper Josh Kumra performed for pupils at Brimble Hill Primary School ahead of his performance at the Oasis.

The singer, who hit the number one spot with Wretch 32 in 2011 with Don’t Go, sang to the students yesterday.

Josh will be performing at the Oasis tomorrow at the Best of Swindon gig, which will also see X Factor star Jahmene Douglas taking to the stage.

“It is time people see what talent Swindon has got. We have all made our own paths and tried to do our own thing and it is hard work,” he said.

“We are all getting there because we work for it. It will be nice that people can see that and share that with us.

“I play at lots of different gigs but I never normally get to share it with the people who made me what I am.”

Other artists in the line-up for the gig on Sunday, which is from 6pm, include Colour the Atlas, Queen of Hearts and Theo Alteiri.

Josh, who lived in Pinehurst, started his career in the acoustic duo Kickaberry and played in pubs in and around Swindon before relocating to London.

He has just returned from a tour of Europe supporting One Republic, and supported Rita Ora in Leicester Square on Thursday night.

Josh will be singing songs from his album, Good Things Come To Those Who Don’t Wait, at the Best of Swindon gig.

Yesterday, he performed for pupils at Brimble Hill, after teaching technician, Mel Parry, got in touch. Josh said: “Mel asked me to come down and I thought why not?. It’s nice to play a couple of songs to the children, this is a rehearsal for me for Sunday.”

Jahmene performed at the school on Thursday.

Headteacher, Alison Paul, said: “Music makes a real difference for the children. Live performances are always very engaging for them.”

Tickets for tomorrow’s gig are still available.
