She is now preparing to give what she says is the biggest performance of her life

A Honiton mum has taken a step closer to reaching singing stardom after she reached the area finals of the Open Mic competition.

It was a nail biting win for Steph Clark, but it was announced that she had made it into the final last Wednesday (November 12).

The mental health nurse was languishing in third place for the majority of the voting period, and even slipped to fourth at one stage. She was still in third place just a day before voting ended.

But, despite her prospects looking bleak, a determined Steph made a final appeal for votes and emphatically propelled herself to the top spot before the polls closed.

You may also want to watch:

“It was a total shock,” she said. “I did not expect to get through, especially as I was fourth on Monday, two days before voting finished.”

Steph is now preparing for what she calls the ‘biggest performance’ of her life – she will be singing live in Fareham, Hampshire on Saturday, November 29.
