The Open Mic UK is a nationwide singing competition and is “The Biggest Search for Unsigned Acts in the UK". This year, 9000 auditioned from across the country for a chance to get into the regional finals. After auditioning with my song 'Strange', I was invited to attend the regional finals held in Sheffield City Hall in September. The judges were pleased with my travelling song 'Wrinkles' which I wrote during a trip to South East Asia in 2012 and put me straight through to the Area Finals in Birmingham in November. I performed 'In the Doldrums' in front of the panel at Birmingham NEC and was successfully placed in the top 5 judges scores, giving me a place in the Grand Final. The Final will take place on the 18th January where I will sing along side the top 24 ranked artists out of the original 9000. Watch this space to keep updated!
