Young singer Zoë Mace is to star in a London concert marking the sixth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

The 12-year-old, from Freeland, near Witney, was asked to take part by organisers the British Memorial Garden Trust and the September 11 UK Families Support Group.

She will be joined by the Metropolitan Police Male Voice Choir and singer Tanya Walker during the performance in Grovesnor Square.

A second concert will be held simultaneously in Hanover Square, New York, where a British Memorial Garden is being created to mark the 67 British victims of the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001.

The Prince of Wales is the patron of the project, covering a three-quarter acre site.

Zoe, who was only six when two jets were flown into the twin towers, will sing Puccini's Mio Babbino Caro, and Voi Che Sapete from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro during next week's concert.

She said: "I feel really privileged that they asked me to do this concert because it's an amazing event.

"I don't remember seeing the twin towers on television but remember seeing mum and dad's faces and everyone being really devastated.

"It was just such a shock to everyone and was a really terrible event."

Zoe shot to fame across Oxfordshire three years ago after releasing her first album Little Ray of Light, which was dedicated to her little sister Jodie and raised money for the Oxford Children's Hospital.

Her second album, Songs for my Sister, was released to boost funds for the Down's Syndrome Association following the death of four-year-old Jodie, who had Down's Syndrome and died after major heart surgery in 2005.

Her third album, called Once Upon a Time, is being recorded at the moment, and is due to go on sale next month.

The London concert is free and starts at 6pm on Tuesday.
