Video: Meet Belfast schoolgirl YouTube sensation Holly McCoubrey, whose voice is raising thousands for charity

Seventeen year-old schoolgirl Holly McCoubrey of Belfast Royal Academy is raising £1600 to visit Malawi in Africa this year.

She was inspired to go after seeing videos from previous students, " after I saw the video, that was it, I knew I was going."

To help her fundraising efforts she released a CD called 'Songs for Malawi' and was lucky to have a song aired on BBC radio Ulster.  The exposure saw her sell hundreds and now she's raise over a thousand pounds.

Holly wants to become a teacher and is keen to give her skills to the people less fortunate than herself when she visits this summer after her AS exams.
