A STUDENT from Queensferry made it through the final of a UK-wide talent contest this week.
Kerrie Lynch, (26), who also works part-time at Tesco at Ferrymuir, qualified for the final of the company’s equivalent to the “Britain’s Got Talent” show.
Kerrie, who is studying commercial music at the University of West of Scotland, travelled down to Romford in Essex with 20 of her work colleagues and friends to compete in the “Tesco’s Got Talent” final.
Having already won the East of Scotland heat, Kerrie, from Springfield, was one of three Scots competing against a further 17 acts from across England and Wales looking to win the £1000 cash prize.
A singer/song- writer, Kerrie recorded her own CD last year and hoped the contest could be a further stepping stone to success.
Sadly, however, she did not make the final three but said: “I did not win but it was a brilliant night all round. It was all about taking part and gaining experience at the same time.”
For the Scottish heat, Kerrie sang Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” while at this week’s final she chose “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes.
Queensferry Tesco store manager Murray Leslie said: “Kerrie did really well to reach the final, she is a great singer!”
