TEENAGE singer Frances Wood proved she has what it takes to impress the country with her voice.
Frances, 18, of Wrenthorpe sang live on national television for the first time last Saturday.
And she has thanked Express readers for voting her through to the semi-finals of BBC One’s The Voice after her rendition of Ain’t Nobody.
Frances of Barnes Avenue told the Express: “The support has been incredible. I did not think people would care enough to take the time to vote.
“It means a lot that people from my home city are so supportive.
“Thank you to everyone for voting and please keep it up as I am working as hard as I can to stay in this competition.
“I am proud of where I come from and am the only one left from Yorkshire and the north.”
The Cathedral Academy of Performing Arts student is not up for the vote this weekend, but will take to the stage for a group performance on Sunday.
She is coached by Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am.
The other coaches are Sir Tom Jones, Jessie J and The Script singer Danny O’Donoghue.
The BBC1 show starts at 7.10pm tomorrow (Saturday) and at 7.15pm on Sunday.
