Britain’s Got Talent Call-up

PROUD - PerseveranceBritain’s Got Talent Call-upCCHS Year 10 student Caitlin is on cloud nine, having received the fantastic news that she has been chosen to audition for Britain’s Got Talent 2021. She has always wanted to sing and has made numerous stage appearances at various events. Over recent years, she has taken massive steps forward and gains in confidence with every performance. Before Christmas, Caitlin made it through to the final of Factor EsseX, a spin-off of ITV’s X-Factor and over recent weeks, she has been performing outside her house on Thursday evenings, as part of the big clap for the NHS and key workers.
After missing-out on this year’s competition, she is now over the moon upon clinching an audition for next year. Caitlin is so excited to share her news with everyone. She was speechless when she found out and still cannot believe that she has been given the opportunity to audition for BGT. Good luck Caitlin and we hope that, after a successful audition, we could see you on stage in front on the judges in 2021!
