Wells girl into next round of national talent contest
A WELLS mum is hoping to get her big break after making it through to the regional finals of a national talent competition.
Sherrie Nutty faced the judges of Open Mic UK and got the big thumbs up – propelling her to the regional finals.
This means she’s just one step away from performing at the O2 in London in front of a capacity crowd – including record executives on the look out for acts to sign-up.
Having previously auditioned for TV show the Voice Sherrie, 28, was feeling nervous when she faced the judges in a rehearsal room at St George’s Hall, in Bristol.

She said: “I was absolutely shocked when I got through.”
Sherrie performed a song she had written herself called Butterflies. She describes her style as love ballads and said: “Someone once described me as a female Elton john. I hope they don’t mean I look like him!”
For the regional final Sherrie will be back at St George’s Hall but this time in the main auditorium - which has a capacity of nearly 600 people.
The mum of one said: “I’m trying to relax and carry on with my normal motherly duties but I’m practicing harder than ever. It’s really exciting.”
Chris Grayston, head of Future Music, who run the competition, said: “Every year that we hold this competition the bar is raised and the quality gets higher and higher.
“We’re really looking forward to experiencing the raw talent from across the country.
“For promising singers, song/writers, rappers and vocalists, Open Mic UK provides a real opportunity to open the door to a music career by showcasing their talent to music industry professionals and audiences across the country.”
The competition attracts over 9,000 acts every year as it travels across the country in search for the UK’s best singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists.
Previous finalists also include Union J’s Jaymi Hensley and R&B singer Hatty Keane.
