TEENAGER Chelsea O'Call-aghan has lived out a dream by singing in front of a live audience.

The 14-year-old student at Freman College in Buntingford won the audience appreciation award in the final of the East Herts District Council's annual Pop Luck competition.

She was singing Whitney Houston's I Have Nothing.

Chelsea said: "I really didn't think I would win because there were some strong singers in the competition. Everybody was really good so I didn't think I had a chance.

"I didn't win the first prize, but I was really happy winning the audience award.

Chelsea said: "Before I sang I was really nervous, especially standing in front of all those people. But once I got started I loved every minute of it.

"I'm definitely going to do it again and, who knows, I may do something like The X-Factor, Simon Cowell wouldn't scare me."

Leilah Fletcher, 16, also of Freman College, joined Chelsea as one of the 14 finalists in the competition hosted by Heartbeat FM DJ Steve Follard.
