Southportyoungster Astrid Smith will sing at this year's Woodvale Rally soon after filming one of ITV's most popular talent shows.

Eight-year-old Astrid, of West Street, will take to the stage at the rally on Saturday and Sunday 16 and 17 June performing a mix of jazz and blues tracks.

The St Marks school pupil has just finished filming the talent show which will go out on ITV in July (the show cannot be named for contractual agreements).

Astrid was scouted for two other prime ITV talent shows after taking part last April in another competition -- Teenstar - where she received the Newcomers Award. She has also competed in Open Mic where she reached the area finals.

Astrid will be appearing alongside other top names at this year's Woodvale Rally including John Lennon's Quarrymen and a new line-up of other top artists.
