Brent Knoll singer, 8, progresses in nationwide song contest

Excitement is growing for a young singer from Brent Knoll who could soon be performing at London's O2 Arena after getting a thumbs-up from the judges of a nationwide music competition.

As first reported here, Gracie Wickens-Sweet made it through to the regional finals of TeenStar, a new music competition, earlier this year.

She has since gone on to make it to the area finals and is now just one performance away from singing in the National Final in London.

The judges said Gracie is an "incredible talent for eight years old with great song engagement... you're going to be a star!"

TeenStar is for the UK’s best teen and pre-teen singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists of all genres who perform either covers or original material.

Gracie said this week she is excited by her progress in the competition and added that she cannot wait until the day she gets to perform live on stage with all the other singers.
