Tamsin eyes O2 London date
Northam singer one step away from performing at top venue
A YOUNG Northam singer is just one step away from performing at the O2 Arena in London after winning the regional finals of a prestigious national signing competition.
Tamsin Ball, 17, wowed the crowd and the judging panel at the Open Mic UK Regional Showcase held at Plymouth Guildhall earlier this month.
The classically trained singer, who had already beaten hundreds of other hopefuls at the audition stage, will now perform at the area final in Portsmouth on November 27.
Thousands of acts have entered this year’s competition to find the best unsigned singers, songwriters, rappers and vocalists of all genres.
