Joanna Forest


Market Place,
LE11 3EB


Having trained at The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts and after winning numerous singing awards she is now regarded as one of the most talented upcoming sopranos performing today.

Joanna has performed extensively in venues across the UK, Europe and the West End (both in Musical theatre and as a solo performer) showcasing her unique voice.

At the age of just 21, Joanna was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is considered one of the youngest ever to be diagnosed with the disease and since making a full recovery has been a key supporter of the charity CoppaFeel! of which she is one of their “Boobette” ambassadors.

In 2014, Joanna devised, produced and performed at the huge CoppaFeel! concert, “Busting to Sing” in partnership with The Sun Newspaper at The 1,400 seater Palace Theatre in London. Performing alongside other huge names from music and tv, she sang her own arrangement of Nessun Dorma solo and duetted with Paul Potts on Point of No Return from Phantom of the Opera.
