Teacher hopes to hit right note

A TEACHER from Barnsley is hoping locals can help her hit the right note to win a £15,000 cash prize - and a fiance.

Kershia Pierce, 24, from Church Hill, Royston has applied to appear on TV game show The Singer Takes It All but it's more than just the cash prize up for grabs.

Despite having never sung in public on her own before, Kershia hopes to make it onto the show and scoop the prize money to pay for her dream wedding to boyfriend Tom Haren - except he hasn't proposed yet.

She said: "Singing on TV is not something I normally would ever put myself forward for - the idea scares me to death. But Tom said if I went on the show and won, he'd marry me."

Kershia runs Barnsley Community Choir - a 40-strong group of singers that perform together to raise money for local charities. But she always has her back to the audience as she's usually conducting.

She has asked locals to vote for her rendition on the game show app.
