A songbird sisters duo are hoping to charm audience members and judges alike at the regional finals of a singing competition.

Frankie and Georgina Warren-Waller have made it through to the live showcases stage of the Open Mic UK singing competition. The girls, who live in Potterspury and attend Sponne School and John Hellins Primary School respectively, will take to the stage at the Milton Keynes Christian Centre on Saturday October 25.

Open Mic UK 2014 is the biggest search for unsigned talent in the UK, and travels the country every year in search for the UK’s best singers, singer-songwriters, rappers and vocalists of all genres performing either covers or their own original material.

Thousands of hopefuls entered Open Mic UK nationwide and hundreds of aspiring singers attended on the day for their turn to impress the judges. Those who made it through the audition stage will now take part in a live head-to-head battle alongside the best talent in their region, performing in front of hundreds of audience members and a music industry judging panel in their bid to win a place at the National Grand Final.

Chris Grayston, events coordinator and Head of Future Music, said: “Every year that we hold this competition the bar is raised and the quality gets higher and higher. We’re really looking forward to experiencing the raw talent from across the country. For promising singers, song-writers, rappers and vocalists, Open Mic UK provides a real opportunity to open the door to a music career by showcasing their talent to music industry professionals and audiences across the country.”

The Warren-Waller sisters will both be performing in the under-16s category which begins at 12 midday. Show the girls your support by joining the audience at the venue. Visit www.openmicuk.co.uk or call 07802 371738 to book tickets, or buy on the door on the day.
