A TALENTED young singer from Cramlington will be the envy of all her friends next month when she takes to the stage to perform a solo at the Wembley Arena.
Chloe Wealleans-Watt, 12, from Pendleton Drive, is no stranger to singing competitions, having already taken part in OpenMic and TeenStar, and now she will perform on the ultimate stage in London.
In December, Chloe travelled to London to perform for Princess Beatrice at the Savoy Theatre in the ‘First News Diamond Kids Royal Gala’, the culmination of a search for the nation’s most entertaining young people.
But while there she was spotted by the people behind Voice in a Million, a project founded in 2009 to raise awareness for the plight of millions of children worldwide that are orphaned, abandoned or separated from their birth parents; and in need of a loving family for life.
The project stages large arena concerts with one of the largest children’s choirs in the world.
And next week the youngster will get the chance to perform at the Wembley Arena with the choir, where she has been selected as one of a lucky few to sing a solo as part of the performance.
The youngster’s mum, Claire, said: “Chloe is always entering loads of singing competitions, and she always gets to the final, she’s such a talented singer.
“When she was invited to sing for Princess Beatrice she was very excited, and then to get offered this on the back of that was wonderful.”
Claire added: “She has been on big stages before and is used to being on stage, but I don’t think she understands quite how big Wembley is, or the significance of it.
“I think she will be terrified when she sees it, but she will really, really enjoy it.”
