It’s all about The Voice for young singers

These Workington girls are on their way to being mentored by music legends Tom Jones and Will.i.am in the hit BBC show The Voice.
Maddie Edgar, 16, Angel Clark, 16, Bethan Nicholson, 15, and Emma Jayne Christian, 16, all of St Joseph’s School, have made it to the second phase of auditions for the TV talent show.
They performed at a showcase event in Cockermouth after their singing teacher Sara Field was approached by the show’s producers.
It was part of the programme’s build-up to the fourth series, which launches early next year.
If they make it on to the show, they will sing for the star judges, who choose performers on the strength of their voices rather than their appearance.
The girls were given a pass to the next round of auditions later this year. They joined other local performers invited to audition at Mac Musica Ltd studio in Sullart Street.
Sara, a semi-professional singer and performer, said: “They sang in front of the show’s producers. I knew they would impress people with their talent.”
