A Ponteland teenager is one stage away form the grand final of a national singing competition.
After coming through the opening round of TeenStar 2014, 14-year-old Olivia Dixon was successful in the regional finals at the Mill Volvo Tyne Theatre in Newcastle with her rendition of ‘Say Something’ by A Great Big World featuring Christina Aguilera.
The semi-final covering northern England and Scotland will take place in Huddersfield on May 25 and the final is in Birmingham.
Olivia’s mum Dianne said: “The feedback from the judges was great. They said it was the best they had heard her sing.”
