A SINGER from Redbourn has been put through to the area final of a music competition, wowing the judges despite having a cold.
Sam Jones, 22, of Hilltop, who has previously been a support act for Pixie Lott, has made it through to the next stage of the annual Live & Unsigned Competition, which will take place next month.
Sam, pictured above, who is a dental nurse and sings a mixture of soul and Motown music, said: “Around seven acts out of 21 made it through at the regional finals on April 1.
“The judges read my name out last and I’d already accepted not getting through, so it was weird when I then found out I had!”
The area final is being held at the Becks Theatre in Hayes on May 19.
