Totie Southwell performed at the Open Mic UK National Grand Final at the NEC on Saturday and won a Future Music Showcase Prize in the Over 21 category.
She was the last act to perform in the whole competition and she played and sung her own composition ‘Holding On’. She said, “The audience was great and there was a really positive atmosphere, I was so happy to even get through to the Grand Final and that was the best achievement in itself anything else was a bonus so to win a prize as well was unexpected.”
The judges feedback on Totie’s performance was “A song you’d like to wake up too! Very soothing, maybe just needed a more distinctive chorus. Love your vocal tone and your personality shines through every time you perform. Lovely performance to finish off the day, well done!”
The prize is an invitation to the Future Music Showcase with the opportunity to being signed by a record label. Totie is very excited about this and is waiting for the details and dates for this.
Congratulations Totie from the Henley Herald.
