singer

TV Times - - Live Special -

Sarah’s pow­er­house voice blew the judges away at the London

Pal­la­dium with her soul­ful ren­di­tion of

Jen­nifer Hud­son’s And

I Am Telling You. The stu­dent,

16, who lives with her par­ents in Mil­ton Keynes, dreams of be­com­ing a pro­fes­sional singer. Si­mon says: ‘You didn’t just nail the song, you made it your song.’ Sarah says: ‘The re­ac­tion so far has been amaz­ing. My school has been re­ally sup­port­ive and my friends

have said they knew I could do it

all along. So I just need to prove them right for the semi-fi­nal! I have been re­hears­ing an hour ev­ery day af­ter school and I’m hop­ing to im­press the judges with a song that is even big­ger and bet­ter than my first au­di­tion.’
