Plymouth schoolgirl in regional final of TeenStar singing contest in Cardiff
TALENT runs in the genes of schoolgirl singing sensation Kiara Stott, who has sung her way to the regional final of a national contest.
The 10-year-old, from Elburton, wowed TeenStar prelim judges in Cardiff with her rendition of Adele's tearjerking lament Set Fire to the Rain.
They put Kiara (pictured) straight into next month's regional pre-teen final, also in the Welsh capital, where she will compete with other talented children for a shot at the UK crown at London's O2.
And it turns out Kiara's talent is hereditary – her great grandparents were part of a musical family troupe who toured the world.

"She comes from a long line of singers," said dad Chris Stott. "My grandparents travelled the world singing. They were called the Sherry Brothers and Sisters, there were 11 of them. And my great uncle Sam was a tap dancer, even performing on the BBC until he passed away aged 82.
"I've also done some music production, and played live, and owned nightclubs in South Africa."
TeenStar is searching for the UK's best teen and pre-teen singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists of all genres. It is organised by Future Music which already produces Open Mic UK.
"It's exciting," said Mr Stott. "Kiara's been singing since she was three, she sings all the time."
