A teenager has sung her way into the regional finals of a national singing competition.
Nina Beckwith from Hilltop, Meppershall, sang Titanium by David Guetta to win herself a place in the under 16, Open Mic regional finals in Milton Keynes.
The 14-year-old, who had to sing in front of four judges, said: “I was very nervous but I will have to sing in front of more people next time. I am quite excited but obviously still a little nervous, but really pleased I got through.
Nina, who has been singing since she was young, attends the Samuel Whitbread Academy in Shefford and Emil Dales Performining Arts School in Hitchin.
Mum, Sarah Beckwith, 36, said: “She could sing before she could talk. It was only when I saw her perform at 10 years old and then people came up to me and said ‘you must nurture this’ that I realised she had a talent.”
The regional finals, which will be held on October 12, will see Nina performing in front of audience members and a music industry judging panel for a chance to win a place at the finals at the O2 on January 18.
The Open Mic competition is one of the biggest singing competitions in the UK with 12,000 people from across the country entering in 2013.
