Anna nearly there

Cambridge’s Anna Saxton is in Los Angeles
working to secure a recording contract with Universal Music.

The finish line is in sight for Cambridge’s Anna Saxton, as she enters the final week of a singing competition in Los Angeles. If successful, Anna will come out ahead of 15 other singers to secure a recording contract with Universal Music.

Proud mother Denise and Anna’s aunty Marie are flying over for the finale, to be held at the Belasco Theatre in LA, the venue of American Idol.

Along with the competition is the added pressure of a film crew, following contestants’ every move for a reality TV show.  Having the chance to rub shoulders with the who’s who of the music industry will no doubt change the course of Anna’s life, and regardless of what happens this will be an experience she will never forget.
