Chilton Trinity students audition for Britain's Got Talent
TWO Bridgwater students have been told by judges on a popular talent show they both have “lovely voices” after performing their own songs.
Chilton Trinity students Rhiannon Coleman and Latvian-born Kristine Mantaja, from Bridgwater, appeared on Britain's Got Talent and were told they should re-audition next year.
The Year Ten pupils, both aged 14, performed in front of judges and cameras during the competition heats at Cardiff.
Rhiannon performed her song 'Perfect' while playing the piano and Kristine sang a rendition of her song 'Getting Closer to the Edge' while playing the guitar.
Rhiannon, whose singing hero is Christina Aguilera, said: "I want to be a famous singer and was so excited when I heard I was to be able to sing my song."
Kristine, whose idolises Ed Sheeran, was inspired to start singing again while on her GCSE music course at Chilton Trinity.
She said: "I was so excited but nervous to go on Britain's Got Talent. I stopped singing when I was eight but started singing again last year and now I am getting my confidence back from my GCSE music course.
“I also have had guitar lessons and so can now sing and play, and love writing my own songs.”
Graeme Wright Head of Music praised the girls. He said: “Well done to both of them. They both had positive feedback that they had lovely voices, and were told to re-audition next year. So overall it was a really positive experience.
“The girls were disappointed with the result, but are happy to work on this for another year and audition again next year when they will be even better."
