A SINGER who auditioned for the BBC show The Voice has joined up with fellow contestants to record a charity single.

Lucia Reyes-Woodward, 17, got through the first two rounds of the show’s audition process but missed out on singing for judges Tom Jones, Will.i.am, Jesse J and Danny from The Script.

She said: “It was great experience going along and auditionning and meeting other people doing the same.

“It was disappointing to not get through but now I have the release of the charity single to look forward to now.”

After the contestants found out that they had not been chosen for the blind audition stages, auditionee Paul Stuart Davies posted a message on the show’s Facebook asking other rejects to get in touch to record a single for charity.

Almost 40 auditionees, known now as Full Circle, met up in Manchester earlier this month to record the track, I Believe.

All of the money raised from the sale of the song, which is due for release on June 4, will go to Me&Dee, a Derbyshire based charity that gives the terminally ill experiences to remember when their time is precious.

Lucia, from Larklands, added: “It was really good to work in a studio where so many great artistis have recorded music.

“We all had a great time and can’t wait to hear the final single and release it.

“I probably will look at auditioning for other shows but later in the year or maybe next summer.”
