A SINGLE mother says she is delighted after her daughter scooped a second award for singing in as many years.

Eysha Quinn, 11, of Southfleet, lifted the Emily Clarke Cup at the Gravesham Festival of Music and Speech on March 6.

The talented St John's Catholic Primary School pupil was also named the winner of Gravesend's Got Talent competition which was held in the summer of 2008.

Her mother Jacqueline Quinn, 30 said: "I cried for the second time when her name was called out in the best solo girl's category.

"She has been a real little performer from the age of about six and she is always putting on little shows for me and the family.

"Already she is dreaming about a singing career and although she hasn't had any professional coaching she is determined to make it."

The event was held at St Johns Catholic Comprehensive School, Rochester Road, Gravesend.

There were 12 singers all competing in the under 11 vocal solo for the Emily Clarke Cup.

Eysha who sang Called to the Sky by Carl Stromen said: "I can't believe I've won and I hope I have made my mum and my grandparents proud.

"Mr Smyth wanted me to enter the solo competition and I am happy that he will be pleased about this.

Adjudicator Valerie Hope who presented Eysha with the cup said: "Eysha had an extremely promising voice with beautiful tone.

"All her family should be really very proud of her.
