X Factor contestant Georgia Burgess held a special concert for pupils at Tittensor First School in Staffordshire this week
Tittensor First School in Staffordshire welcomed X Factor contestant Georgia Burgess to the school this week to end their school term on a high.
The 20-year-old singer from Birmingham put on a private concert at the school for more than 80 children, as well as a number of parents and staff.
She sang four songs in total during the performance including Perfect by Ed Sheeran and Shotgun by George Ezra. She also took the time to pose for photos, answer questions and sign photos for the children. One parent told Staffordshire Living: “It really was a fab morning. She had all the kids joining in… and adults too!”
Georgia shot to fame on the show, which began its fifteenth series last month, after her rendition of The Jackson 5’s Who’s Loving You blew judges Simon Cowell, Ayda Williams, Robbie Williams and Louis Tomlinson away, receiving a standing ovation from all four judges and the 4,000-strong audience.
She went on to breeze her way through the next two stages – Boot Camp and the Six-Chair Challenge – but her journey ended after X factor boss Simon Cowell couldn’t take her through to the live shows saying goodbye to her at the final hurdle – Judges’ Houses.
Gerogia is no stranger to the limelight having recently supported artists such as Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, Olly Murs and Jess Glynne.
Headteacher Emily Proffitt told Stoke-on-Trent Live: “We are big promoters of music here and have had all sort of musicians in to play for the kids. What better way to inspire them than by seeing someone they’ve seen on TV?
“School is far more than just maths and English and our kids play all kinds of music. Today was brilliant, Georgia was great with them and they did ask lots of random things.”
Tittensor First School is one of 70 schools that Georgia intends to visit following her X factor appearance. She is also planning to release a single in December.
