A Hornchurch schoolboy has reached the final round of a regional singing competition.

Connor Crouchman, 15, is one of 33 finalists at the annual Factor Essex singing competition.

The year 11 student at The Albany School, on Broadstone Road, was also nominated as best solo act at the 2017 SEEA Youngstar Awards.

Connor said: “It has improved my confidence no end and I now look forward to singing live when at one time I would get very nervous.”

The young singer sang live on Time Radio last weekend and will perform again on Gateway FM next week end.

Mark Mansell, head of music at The Albany School, said: “Connor is an extremely hard working and talented student, he is humble and appreciative and I wish him the very best of luck.”

The winner of Factor Essex will be crowned at the grand final on December 10 at Fiction Romford, on South Street.
