Hobday's voice coach, Naomi Koch, suggested she perform that song.
...Training with Koch for three years, Hobday credits her teacher with helping her reach this point in a career trajectory that is aiming for stardom on the stage and on the screen.
explained that acting, singing and the music are integral to a powerful musical theatre piece; that portraying the emotions in a song is as important as voice talent."You really have to do the character, know who you are and sing through that," said Koch
."The more they understand their character the better they portray the piece."Performing is a big part of Hobday's
life.She is a member of the Windmill Theatre Players and had the lead role in their fall performance of Seussical.She
also participated in Highwood High School's
musical theatre production each year and has been in school choirs since kindergarten.
