Priory Community School student Kezia Povey, aged 15, is through to the next round of TV’s The X Factor.
She had a successful TV audition in front of entertainment legends Williams and Cowell.
Principal Jane McBride said: “I remember hearing Kezia sing at school. This huge voice popped out of nowhere! I asked her to come in and sing to the whole staff team at 8:25 one Monday morning. It was a great start to the week!”
