AN up-and-coming Highbridge singer wowed her audience at Burnham-On-Sea’s Princess Theatre on Friday night.

Gypsy Watkins received a standing ovation after her confident performance, ranging from opera to jazz and country to pop.

Her powerful rendition of Nessun Dorma, the well-known aria from the final act of Puccini’s opera, brought the house down at the end of the evening.

Her wide-ranging show also included pop classics, including several Elvis songs demonstrating her vocal expertise.

Gypsy will return to The Princess Theatre in Burnham on Friday September 26 at 7.30pm when she’ll be focusing on her pop expertise.

Tickets are available by calling 01278-784464.
