Emily through to final of Junior Search for a Star

Emily Baker of Bradley Stoke, Bristol

A girl from Bradley Stoke has made it through to the final of a popular Bristol talent contest.

Emily Baker, 11, took part in a heat of Junior Search For a Star 2011 at the Fry Club in Keynsham last Sunday and was selected to progress to the final of the competition on 9th October, when there will be cash prizes of £150, £100, £75 and £50 for the top four.

Emily, who attends St Bede’s Catholic College in Lawrence Weston, was first on stage in her heat but sang really well, says her proud mum Sharon.

The youngster got the crowd going with “Pack Up” by Eliza Doolittle and the Elton John classic “Your Song”.

She told the Bristol Evening Post:

“I love the way when you sing a note you can connect with so many people at the same time.”

“I’d love to be a singer when I’m older.”

    “Emily came 2nd in tonight’s final and won £100. The judges included the deputy editor of the evening post said she was fantastic but the overall standard was exceptional. Emily goes to St Bedes and this is her first competition and she has gone to bed tonight very happy.”

    Well done Emily!
