Last year The Voice UK changed Leanne Mitchell's life forever. This is the exclusive, full story of that incredibly journey told in her own words.'Half of me was overwhelmed to have won the show and the other half was scared stiff because I knew that from that moment on I really did have to prove myself. OK, so I have just won The Voice! What the hell happens now?' The Voice UK was the unique opportunity Leanne Mitchell had been waiting for. She had been so close to success before, including a record deal that took her to America but didn't work out. Leanne knew that this could be her last chance to realise her dream of becoming a recording artist and she had to give that dream one last shot.This is the story of a true vocal talent, how she finally found confidence in herself and went on to win the first series of The Voice UK and a major record deal.
The Voice UK is Britain's biggest new talent show and the singing competition with a difference - it's all about the voice! Thousands of hopefuls, from all over the country, apply for their chance to audition in front of the coaches, Jessie J, will.i.am, Danny O'Donoghue and Tom Jones. But only the very best singers get through to the Blind Auditions. Once each coach has selected their teams the battle begins to secure a place in the live shows and, finally, to win that elusive recording contract.
