Singing sensation Georgia Bray paid a special visit to her home town theatre just days before her next knockout appearance on ITV's The Voice.

The star sang an Amy Winehouse cover of Someone To Watch Over Me to a packed audience at the Prince of Wales Theatre in Cannock on Tuesday night.

It was part of show Cannock Gotta Dance, which saw 300 children perform to their family and friends.


Georgia, age 21, from Calf Heath, said she was 'inspired' by the whole show.

She said: "It was absolutely lovely. I had not been to Prince of Wales since I was a little girl, so I was getting these massive flash backs while performing there.

"It's just crazy to think where I was then, and where I am now. And seeing all the kids so happy in their dance outfits, was just inspiring. It just felt so special."

Georgia also attended Castlechurch Primary in Stafford the same day, where she performed Katy Perry's Firework to excited school children.


She will be appearing on The Voice again this Saturday in the Knockout round, where she will learn if she has reached the semi-finals.

"It's crazy to realise how close we are now to the end," said Georgia. "It's so exciting. It's pre-recorded so I'll be watching with my family - we're all going to my dads and we're going to get a takeaway, maybe an Indian or a Chinese!"

Steve Glover from Stafford, who organised Cannock Gotta Dance, said: "Georgia is obviously going to be on national TV, so it's a great opportunity for people to see her sing live and meet her."

Georgia is being mentored by star Olly Murs in The Voice and said it was surreal to meet so many famous faces.

Watch the Voice on ITV at 7.30pm on Saturday. If Georgia does not reach the semi-finals there will be a chance for the public to vote her back in on the night.

The Lifeline vote will open just before the show closes and people will have until 11.30pm that evening to vote. It is free and viewers can vote five times using The Voice app.

The successful solo singer or trio will be revealed at the live Semi-Final the following weekend.
