Bonnie knows that the show goes on

BONNIE Ferguson's first professional engagement saw her handling a performance crisis that would have challenged many adult performers.

The 12-year-old was on stage singing Irish songs, accompanied on the piano by her mother Kate Ferguson when a fight between two hotel patrons saw the hotel's St Patrick's Day party become a crime scene.

True to the best stage traditions, Bonnie, who has been singing in public since she was four, continued with her act.

On Saturday Bonnie, who raises money for animal charities, will be busking outside Park Beach Plaza from 11am.
