Rebecca had her first major solo performance aged 10 opening The Millenium Celebrations concert for a live audience of 10,000 people at The Point Depot, Dublin. At 11, Rebecca recorded her first album raising £5,000 for charity. Soon after, Rebecca was chosen as the under-study for the role of Cosette in the Cameron Macintosh Production of “Les Misérables” in Dublin.
Rebecca then continued music in secondary school where she won the music scholarship six years in a row and learnt the Irish harp and piano. She won several national vocal competitions during this time and performed regularly as a soloist in prestigious Irish venues including performances for three Presidents of Ireland at Áras an Uachtaráin.
At the age of 17, Rebecca joined the world-renowned choral group “Anúna”, the original Riverdance Singers, with whom she toured for several years around the world. Rebecca features on several award-winning Anúna albums, DVDs and collaborations such as Blizzard Entertainment’s soundtrack to Diablo III, which has sold over 20 million copies to date! She performed with the group to audiences of millions on TV shows including RTE’s “The Late Late Show”, FOX TV USA, PBS and other broadcasters in Europe, America, Australia and Asia. Again with Anúna, Rebecca performed solo at private parties for esteemed guests such as Bill Gates, Bono, Chris Martin and Séamus Heaney amongst others.
Rebecca was then invited to join the highly prestigious early music group “The Vocal Academy of Paris” with whom she spent one year performing in the heart of Paris on a daily basis and touring across the UK and France.
She then travelled for two years as lead female soloist with Irish music and dance sensation, “Ragús the show” on sell-out tours to Holland, Belgium, China and Japan.
In 2014, Rebecca performed as a lead singer with Celtic Nights “The Emigrants Bridge” on a three month tour reaching 100,000 audience members over 22 states across the USA.
Most recently, in May 2014 Rebecca performed as solo vocalist at the world premiere of “Titanic Dance” at the 10,000 seater stadium “The Odyssey Arena Belfast” and at “The Millenium Forum Derry”.
