IT was music to a Barry mum's ears when she found out that her dream project had been given the go ahead.

With just two hours to spare, Penni Carr's project hit the required donation target meaning that she can now fulfil her musical ambitions and record an album of bilingual Welsh/English songs for a children.

Babi Bach - the album was funded through Kickstarter, a website where people can pledge donations to projects that only receive money should they reach their projected target.

Penni, who runs Barry based bilingual music class Babi Bach hit her £1500 target two hours before her deadline.

"At the start of the day we were £250 shy of the target and I really didn't think we'd get there," the 34-year-old mum of two said.

"I'm over the moon. I spent most of the day in tears when I found out we'd hit the target.

"There's no way we could have made this album without this, it's made my dream a reality."

The idea behind the project is to create a modern album of bilingual songs to help children learn Welsh.

"When you start something like this you think 'I don't know, is it going to be any good? Will anyone be interested?'," said Penni, "But the amount of support we've had shows there is a need for it.

"I'm so pleased that people took the time to pledge and that people believed in the project. A huge diolch to every single person who helped make this dream a reality."

Penni is now hoping that the album while be recorded next month and will be released around Christmas time.
