Song that got you to the final:
Climb Every Mountain from The Sound of Music

Why did you choose that song?

It’s my favourite movie. I believe in people following their dreams. It has a really uplifting feeling, and I have a strong emotional connection with it.

How did it feel backstage before you performed?

I’ve never felt more nervous! It was so nerve-wracking as we were taken out one by one. I kept repeating to myself: "I chose to do this, I chose to do this."

What was the atmosphere like when you walked out in front of The 100?

Very strange because it was silent. Usually, as a singer, there is applause when you go out on stage. But once I started singing I could hear everyone.

Were you more nervous when it came to the final?

Yes! Nervous because there was more at stake.

Did you get to know your fellow finalists?

Yes, I have made some really good friends. I wish we had had longer together.

Best memory from taking part in the show?

I think the beginning of the final. It was full of love and happiness as we sung together.

What is your favourite all time song and/or artist?

I’m a classical musician, so my favourite is Kiri Te Kanawa. But my favourite music theatre singers are Julie Andrews and Barbra Streisand.

How did you find being on the show with Rob and Geri?

They were amazing. Rob kept everyone at ease, and Geri was so supportive and kind.
