Erin has what it takes to be Voice of Ireland
Erin has what it takes to be Voice of Ireland

SHE'S jazzy and snazzy and could be the next Voice of Ireland.

Erin Rice from Swinford was this evening selected on Rachel Stevens' team for the live round battles in the popular television series.

The 24-year-old jazz singer hit the stage singing 'I Got a Woman', prompting former S Club 7 member Rachel to hit her button.

Before her performance, Erin said she would find it hard to sing for such a small audience, but having started performing at a very young age she has plenty of experience and gave a top class performance.

Judge Kian Egan said he thought it was a 'fantastic performance'. “Where are you gonna go next?” he asked.

Judge Rachel said: “I think your voice could go anywhere!”

Erin, who is daughter of Michael and Ann Rice, comes from a musical family and grew up performing in musicals and in choirs. She plays guitar and has supported The Hot Sprockets before.
