Jade, who does cheerleading in her spare time, said: “When I first started singing, people at school would bully me because of the genre of music I sang but I have kept doing it.

“Singing has become like another world where I can escape to.”

Her singing idol is Katherine Jenkins.

Voting opens at noon on Monday, November 17, via the Brighouse Echo website.
