AN UNSIGNED talent from the borough will be taking to the stage alongside chart names for a special under-18s music festival.
Hayley Jones is set to perform at OMG Live at the LG Arena on April 24 with acts including Lawson and Union J.
The 17-year-old, whose idols are Etta James and Beyonce, has only been singing seriously for the last three years and won the Pop Idol 2013 competition at Bromsgrove’s Artrix.
She said: “The standard of the acts was really high and the process highly professional - with a boot camp and a number of different performances.
“It was a huge thrill to win and to have an opportunity to play at the LG in front of thousands of people.”
