During ‘March’ Houston becomes quite emotional grabbing not only the audience’s sympathy, but also the passion of the song.


Not only does she manage to captivate the room with her humour but she also manages to captivate them with her rendition of ‘One That I Want’ from Grease.

Elisa Franceschi makes her debut Scottish appearance tonight, but by the looks of it she already has a huge Scottish following as her fans sing along with every word.

Bringing powerful vocals to the show that blows the audience away and with her added humour, especially in her new track ‘I don’t love you (I barely like you but you’ll do)’, she makes a lasting impression.

Another act making their first appearance in Scotland is the young, but talented, Ethan Basden, who put his own twist on classic ‘In the Ghetto’ without taking away the goodness of the original.

An effortless performance and flawless vocals, we can expect to be hear his name a lot in this year.

Hannah Trigwell makes the most of the final night of her debut headline tour by giving it her all.

Her unique vocals, an amazing talent, are the reason why the final night of her tour is packed.

There are die-hard fans of the young singer within the crowd as they sing along with Trigwell to nearly every word.

Her rendition of the Drake’s ‘Hold On, I’m Coming Home’ is superb; without sounding like a judge from the X Factor she makes the song sound her own.

Trigwell may sound slightly nervous when she speaks to the crowd but her confidence beams when she is performing.

Singing her favourite cover and what seems to be her most popular on YouTube, ‘Halleluiah’, she seems quite emotional, making her more endearing to everyone in attendance.

A fabulous night that is packed full of amazing talent, I’m looking forward to seeing what 2014 holds for these great musicians.
