Congratulations to Elle Watson (Year 10), who has now reached the top five in the Pizza Express Big Audition, a national music competition with Jamie Cullum.
Elle Watson will take part in the national live final on Wednesday 23 November before a panel of judges, including Jamie Cullum. The winner they select will perform at the Pizza Express Jazz Café and receive £5000 towards their singing career.
Elle is one of five selected from over 7000 entrants: a tremendous achievement. She was selected for the regional finals before progressing to the national top 50, then to the top ten, and finally, by an online vote, to the last five.
Elle Watson is an iGCSE music student at Sevenoaks, a member of the Gospel Choir and Choral Society, and a regular solo performer at concerts in The Space.
Four OS also reached the final 50 with their band Lights Out Lester. Martin Felton, Ali White, Marcus Ellingham and Hugo Ellingham formed the band three years ago and have performed in London and the South East.
Watch Elle's regional heats performance and audition.
