From Paris with love

19 year old singer-songwriter and former Heart of England pupil Paris Tredell, better known on the local music scene these days as Paris Georgia, has released her new Song of the Month for fans old and new.


The Paris Georgia fan club is growing at an incredible rate locally, following her recent performances in the hotly contested Balsall’s Got the Voice competition, the finals of which took place at the Balsall Common Festival on Saturday 20th September 2014.



Many festival-goers were shocked when Paris didn’t make the cut for the Top 4 sing-off, a decision which underlined the strength of competition and difficult job the judges had on their hands on Finals Day.


Meet Paris here performing piano and vocals in her interpretation of SIA’s Chandelier:



You can find out more about Paris and her gigs by visiting her Facebook page, all you need to do to stay up to date is hit “Like” and “Get notifications” (an option often only available on laptops or PCs) to ensure her updates appear in your newsfeed:
