Beth Morris opened the fifth series of BBC’s The Voice in January and was instantly tipped for the win.

Born and bred in Maidenhead, Beth worked as a stylist for Eight Ray Music Agency in Henley before landing a place on the show after amazing the judges, audience and viewers.

Despite an evident flair for fashion, which saw her take to the stage in a leopard print cat suit and bright red lipstick, with her friends and family coordinated back stage, Beth has always loved singing.

She says: “From the moment I could talk I was singing, but I was quite shy.

“I didn’t like people knowing I could sing. Nobody knew I could until I was in my late teens.”

Since then Beth has performed hundreds of gigs and out of all of these she says that Studio 15 Nightclub in Windsor is her favourite place to perform: “I love there vibe there. It’s an amazing nightclub.”

Beth decided to audition for The Voice at the age of 26 after somebody from the show saw her videos online.

She opened this year’s competition with an incredible rendition of Nutbush City Limits by one of her favourite artists, Tina Turner.

Paloma Faith turned round for her first and was evidently delighted with Beth, perhaps due to their also matching leopard print outfits.

Paloma was then followed by Boy George, and, at the last minute, Ricky Wilson.

Beth says: “It felt incredible. I was so nervous I can’t believe I even sang. I couldn’t believe it. I never believed that I would actually get onto the show.”

Despite going with the hope that, at the very least, would turn around for her, after the judges battled it out Paloma Faith had won her round.

Beth says she definitely made the right decision: “I think she’s an incredible woman, the advice she’s given me has helped so much. She’s worked so hard to be where she is so she has so much knowledge.

“She’s really full on so I’ve grown as an artist. This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.

“I never had any training until entering The Voice, which hinders me a little bit. There are quite a few people that are incredible, the game has really risen this year.”

Discussing her own style and sound Beth says: “I’ve got an old husky soul voice with a modern twang. I should have been born in the ‘70s.

“The Voice allows you to be the artists you want to be. They don’t put you in a circle if you’re a square. That’s really important, I couldn’t be told who to be. I have a vision.”
