Lacey Moulden from Castle Eaton just outside Swindon is a young talent in the making.
At 14 she started singing in a local band after being spotted by local musician and band manager Dave Griffen. The band are of the older generation and Lacey has brought a youthful spark back into their music, performing throughout the Swindon area including the recent Trout Fest in Lechlade. They also appeared at the Fairford Steam Rally at the end of August.
On 14 August Lacey took her first step to making it big on her own at the Open Mic UK 2011 auditions. After singing the Glee version of the classic ‘Songbird’ in front of six industry judges Lacey had an agonising wait while the judges deliberated on their decision.
The 15 year old has now been offered a place to sing live at the Regional Finals that will take place in St Georges Hall, Bristol on 18 September. Guest judges and the live audience will choose their favourite acts to send through to the National Final which will be held in the O2 London.
If successful Lacey will be in with chance of wining a record contract and up to £50,000 worth of prizes. Part of the competition is for Lacey to get the support of her local community and prove that she can build up a fan base.
