A FORMER homeless woman from St Kilda took to the stage with some of the greats of Australian music last week to help raise more than $25,000 for St Kilda Youth Services.
Bek Seccy, 18, joined Paul Kelly, Clare Bowditch, Mick Harvey and Dave Graney, performing to more than 300 people at a fund-raising concert at the new MEMO theatre last Thursday.
SKYS chief executive Emma Crighton said she was “extremely proud” and “touched” to see one of the program’s own students perform alongside the Australian music icons.
“It was a magical moment for Bec and all of us at SKYS.”.
Seccy is a singer, songwriter and self-taught guitarist who found her way into the SKYS music program after being referred by a youth worker. She has since transformed her life.
She performed From Little Things Big Things Grow with the other artists to close the concert.
