A Falkirk singer’s dreams of winning a recording contract were dashed at the weekend.
Barbara Bryceland failed to make it to the live finals of BBC One show ‘The Voice’. The grandmother from Redding has been singing in clubs and pubs around Falkirk for years and was over the moon to beat off competition from 35,000 performers to make the final 40.
Barbara (47) was selected by legendary crooner Tom Jones to join his 10-strong mentoring team, however each judge had to half their number of acts before the live final.
Barbara took part in an on-stage battle with fellow Sir Tom team member Leanne Mitchell, with the Welsh crooner opting to save Leanne.
The final 20 acts will be whittled down by a public vote to be named ‘The Voice’.
