RISING star Jake Carter went from the stage to the classroom on Friday afternoon and sparked great excitement in a Killarney secondary school.
One of the most popular country music stars in Ireland paid a surprise visit to Killarney Community College and performed for students and staff who sang and danced along in the assembly hall.
Music teacher Joanna Hughes was delighted to hear that the talented 18-year-old, the younger brother of chart topping artist Nathan Carter, was paying a visit.
“With the huge uptake of music in the college in the past few years, an experience like this will benefit our music students in their own practical assessment for both Junior and Leaving Certificate,” she said.
Jake has often performed at his brother’s gigs and festivals and has been a great hit with the fans. He has been gigging relentlessly in the UK and Ireland, performing in clubs, restaurants, concerts and private events.
