An aspiring Starston singer is a step closer to winning a national competition after making it through the audition stage in Camden earlier this month.
Breeze Redwine, an 11-year-old Archbishop Sancroft High School pupil, has made it through the audition stage of the TeenStar signing competition. Previous winners of the event include Luke Friend, who made it into the final of The X Factor last year.
Breeze, who sung an acapella cover of Radioactive by Imagine Dragons, will now compete in the regional head-to-head battle at Dingwell, Camden Lock, on April 27. Her talents were first discovered at Harleston Primary School as a nine-year-old, and has been attending the Norfolk Singing School for about a year.
Breeze’s mother Jackie told the Diss Express: “I think she stands a chance but she has got to work hard. She was up in the top three or four in the auditions I would think but she must work hard and practice her vocals and make sure she is perfect.
“When she got through my mouth was wide open - I could not believe she got through. We are very proud of her.”
Ms Redwine, whose great-grandmother was an opera singer, believes it is the influence of Breeze’s older brother Axl, 20, a keen guitar player, which has helped her musical talents.
“She has grown up listening to him and I think she was inspired by him a lot,” she added.
Breeze told the Diss Express that Katy Perry was also among her favourite singers.
