A YOUNG performer from Anniesland has been charming audiences of The Voice Kids with her sweet singing voice.

Seven-year-old Peyton Chu performed in the battle rounds of the ITV show last weekend after impressing the judges with her rendition of Colours of the Wind from Disney's Pochahontas during her blind audition in Manchester.

On Saturday's programme she went head to head as part of Team will.i.am alongside Alexandria singing duo Alfie and Ava and rapper Lil Shan Shan at London's Elstree Studios in a pre-recorded show, filmed earlier this year.

The foursome performed See You Again by Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa, leaving American coach Will with a tough decision about who to send through.

In the end Lil Shan Shan was named the winner, but Peyton took it all in her stride and was just happy to have the chance to do what she loves on such a big stage.

Her mum Rowena Wan-Chu, who headed down to cheer Peyton on with husband Wills and son Rhys, told the Post: "She was happy that her friend Shan Shan got through and proud of herself that she managed to get there and get that far.

"To reach the battle stages is an amazing achievement. To reach the last 36 out of 10,000 kids who entered is just wow.

"Will was very friendly and welcoming and really helped them with their song choice and to build up their confidence to go on stage."

Despite her tender age, Peyton, who is going into primary four at the end of the holidays, already has a wealth of performing experience under her belt.

She started dancing at Glasgow's G12 Studios aged just two and a half and recently took part in the Dance World Cup in Braga, Portugal, where she danced in five categories, coming home with a bronze in commercial hip hop and placing in tap.

Over the last couple of years she has started to do private singing lessons and vocal and drama with G12.

In terms of what is next for her daughter on the stage, Rowena is determined, however, not to put any pressure on her daughter and to leave that up to Peyton.

She added: "I think from an early age, from being a young toddler she was able to sing in tune because she was in the car a lot with me and we would listen to the radio and she would pick up a song within a few times of listening to it.

"She just loves singing and in the last couple of years she decided she wanted to take singing lessons.

"Going forward, it's up to her, as long as she enjoys what she is doing that's the main thing.

"She's still learning and will continue with singing and dancing and we will have to wait and see where it takes her."
