SECOND SUPPORT - Kerrianne Covell
Pocket rocket Kerrianne hails from the quaint village of Norton in Stockton-on-Tees.Thanks to her northern sass and, in her own colloquial words, ‘fog horn’ voice, Kerrianne has been on the journey of her dreams since the age of 12. Having won a competition in 2013 with the regions favourite and biggest radio station TFM, Kerrianne performed at the Metro Radio Arena as the champion of their Big Audition. Supporting the likes of Pixie Lott, Example, Little Mix and many more gave her the fuel to fire her burning desire to be one of their peers. Bounding inside with talent in Pop, Contemporary and R&B Kerrianne and her performing experience took to the X Factor stage in 2014. Wowing not only the crowds but also the judges gave her a much coveted spot at the judges houses with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.Currently working with different songwriters to release her first 'EP' and ready to explode back onto the stage performing live to her fans, this little girl from the North is soon to be a massive artist from the UK. Watch out for Kerrianne and her beautiful, innocent smile. When you’re from the north you don’t quit. You give it your all, fight for success and to your supporters you give ‘love’ to the moon and back.
