Nutini Sings With Schoolkids

Singer PAOLO NUTINI performed with a group of schoolchildren on Monday (05Jul10) as he launched a music academy for youngsters in his native Scotland.
The Last Request hitmaker played an intimate show for students at the Academy of Music in Paisley, Scotland, which was opened by his longtime friend Hannah-Rose MCLennan and her partner Craig White.
Nutini allowed pupils from the school's 'Glee' club to join him onstage to sing backing vocals for his track Pencil Full Of Lead, while White's 16-year-old daughter duetted with the star on Candy.
The singer admits he enjoyed meeting all the youngsters and praised MCLennan for setting up such a worthwhile venture.
He tells the Daily Record, "I have known Hannah-Rose since primary school, we go a long way back. For me it is a great thing to see this happening and the kids so happy about it...
"The kids singing with me were great."
Nutini has also promised to spend as much time at the academy as possible to help kids learn about music: "I will do what I can, the Saturdays I have free and pieces of time that come up, I will come in and do workshops... I want to stay involved."
