SINGER Rob Eagle – flying high in the music business after releasing his first album – landed in a Blackpool school to perform for pupils.

The upcoming Fylde R&B wannabe sang to pupils from Stanley Primary School with songs from his debut album The Clue to Life.

The 19-year-old is moving up in the industry with his unique brand of R&B tunes and R Kelly-like voice which he showcased to perfection.

A spokeswoman for Stanley Primary said: “He was fantastic, he’s got a brilliant voice, was a total professional and definitely made all the girls swoon.”

Performing with a backing track, the singer sang to 350 pupils in the tightly-packed school hall.

The spokeswoman added: “If he’s able to play to all those kids I’m sure he’ll make it anywhere.”

Year 6 pupil Jasmine Shirley said: “He’s very talented and was really good, he even stayed to talk to our school choir and sign autographs. I’ll most definitely buy his next album.”

Rob was delighted with the reception.

He said: “It was an amazing concert – the best atmosphere I’ve ever experienced. We’ve gone from starting out two years ago to going places and the children know me.

“Going and performing for free helps get my name out there and the children really love the music.”

The North Shore singer, studying for a BTEC in music at Blackpool Sixth form, sprung to the fore with his songwriting and performing skills when he released an album on iTunes.

In July last year, Rob released the debut album and signed to FYLF Music managed by Ian Parkinson.

His music has now been remixed by 7th Heaven, a top UK production team which has remixed songs for major artists including The Saturdays and Jason Derulo.

The 7th Heaven Club remix of his single Place Your Bet has already enjoyed critical success. Top club Gatecrasher’s DJ Strong put him at the number one spot in his official Remix Chart.
