A rising star is hoping her band’s “magical” sound will impress on a TV talent show.
Katie Lawrence, 23, from Kelvedon Hatch, is hoping her band Misstasia – a four-piece vocal group which performs Disney classics – will do enough to get through to the final of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent (BGT).
The band is set to perform during a live semi-final tonight after impressing judges at an audition.
Former St Martin’s School pupil Katie said: “We got really good feedback from the judges – David [Walliams] said we were magical.”
She added: “I’m really happy we’ve made it this far, we can’t believe it.”
The singer is hoping the group’s take on the classic children’s songs will win the public’s votes.
“It’s never been done before,” she said.
