ALL-SINGING Meden School pupil Savinnah Quelcuti is celebrating after making it through to the regional finals of Britain Does Variety.
The 13-year-old recently passed an audition for the nationwide talent competition and has gained a place at the regional finals at the City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds on 21st April.
If successful, Savinnah will then go on to perform at the ‘Britain Does Variety National Grand Final’ which will take place at The Watford Palace Theatre in London on 23rd June.
She would then be testing her talents against some of the finest young performers in the country and singing live in front of Giles Cooper, executive producer of the Royal Variety Performance & chairman of the Entertainment Artistes’ Benevolent Fund.
Her proud parents Sherri and Victor Quelcuti say that Savinnah is getting in as much practice as possible ahead of the regional competition and they believe she has the talent to come out on top against her fellow performers.
“We’re really pleased that she’s made it to the next stage because there was a lot of competition at the last audition,” said Sherri.
“She has been singing all her life and started to have lessons when she went to Meden School, they have been fantastic with her and have slowly built up her confidence and given her solo slots in school performances.”
She will be singing In The Arms Of an Angel, by Sarah McLaughlin and will be cheered on by family and schoolfriends.
“I think she will do well, she has a lovely voice, she has a very nice tone and she puts her own mark on whatever she sings,” added Sherri.
Savinnah, who lives in the small village of Norton near Cuckney, has performed many times at school and has also performed at the Warsop Carnival.
She recently finished in second place at The Stage is Yours talent show in Retford and is now following her dream of forging a profession in the music industry.
