Fresh out the recording studio, Paxton Fielies hopped straight on a plane, as part of the World Childrens Prize Foundation, to Perform for Queen Silvia of Sweden. In a surprise turn of events, Paxton was awarded the role of Ambassador for the Queen’s initiative “You, Me: Equal Rights” campaign, and was presented with a Chrystal globe as acknowledgement.
The globally broadcast award ceremony saw Paxton being recognised and invited to various territories around the world. Paxton could not contain her excitement and exclaimed “The Queen whispered she loved my singing, when handing me the globe. I can’t believe this!”
Throughout the week she was in Stockholm and Mariefred, she completed a multi city schools tour, performing to roughly 3 schools a day, gaining standing ovations and new fans along the way.
“It was such an honour being selected to perform for the World Children’s Prize, it made me realise that it is not only the kids in South Africa, but worldwide, who need the support from those who can give it. I really do think that all schools in South Africa should sign up to be a part of this.”
She arrived back in South Africa on Monday, and is putting the finishing touches on her eagerly anticipated Debut Album, that will launch in May.
