Songbird Connie Talbot performed to millions of people when a concert in South Korea was broadcast worldwide.

The nine-year-old, of Streetly, sang her signature tune Somewhere Over the Rainbow at a concert in Seoul to celebrate the forthcoming G20 world leaders summit being held there later this week.

Three years since she achieved celebrity status on Britain's Got Talent, the youngster's star shows no signs of fading.

It was was her third visit to South Korea, where she is so popular her song has been selected as the backing music for a major fountain there. Throughout the day, the impressive Balpo Bridge shoots colourful jets of water into the air in time with Connie's version of the Wizard of Oz classic.

At Saturday night's concert, Connie was given the honour of opening the show. Delegates from the G20 group looked on as the Blackwood Primary School pupil performed.

The Road for Hope Concert also featured US R'n'B band All 4 One, US pianist Kevin Kern, and several top Korean celebrities.

Later this month, the schoolgirl will swap Seoul for Sandwell when she switches on the festive lights in Wednesbury.
