AN 11-year-old singer who wrote and recorded her own album is hoping to share her music with an even wider audience by appearing on Britain’s Got Talent.
Keziah Spaine, of Shaftesbury Gardens, Park Royal, who wrote her album Miss Me in April, has impressed judges in numerous singing competitions with her originality and ability to hold a tune, but she is now waiting to hear whether she will appear in the new series of the ITV show.
Keziah took part in the first round of auditions in front of judges from the show’s production team at the ExCel Centre, Docklands, last month.
She said: “Before the audition it was scary, but when I started singing it was okay and I enjoyed it. I sang a song called Mrs Me, which they said was very original and showed a lot about me.”
The song, which is about being yourself and tolerant of others, is one of 12 songs on the album which all have a different style, including rock, pop, reggae and soul.
Her father, Peter Maurice, produced it with his friend Paul Martin, who works in the music industry and has his own studio.
Keziah added: “I started writing my own songs when I was about seven. It’s really exciting to have my own album. I wanted to get them published so more people could have a chance to listen to them and enjoy them. I want to become a singer one day. I’ve always wanted that.”
Her father believes she has a good chance of making it on Britain’s Got Talent and appearing in front of the celebrity judges.
Mr Maurice said: “The feedback we’ve been getting all along has been really positive. One of the judges in the Britain’s Got Talent auditions said they get a lot of little girls singing cover songs. But when one comes up with a song from scratch and the music to go with it, what more can he ask for?”
? Britain’s Got Talent 2012 will return to ITV1 this spring.
