Ruth-Ann St Luce Final

Singing Sensation Ruth-Ann Is The Pride Of West London With Her Final Performance On The Voice

Kensington and Chelsea College music student Ruth-Ann St Luce was the toast of West London following her final ever performance on BBC1’s The Voice.

Despite a heartfelt rendition of Cheryl Cole’s ‘Promise This’ the talented teen was unable to secure enough votes from the public and judges to get her through to the semi-final stages of the music competition.

Although she bid farewell from the show Ruth-Ann is being cited as ‘the one to watch for the future’ by her adoring fans and music tutors at Kensington and Chelsea College.

Global superstar Jessie J, who coached her on the show, also heaped praise on the young singer, adding: ‘Ruth Ann – you’re 18. And I will repeat myself in saying that the things that you can do with your voice, so many singers would dream to be able to do….. I need you to know that your path is just gleaming, and this is not the end…’

The gifted songbird originally earned her spot on the show after auditioning with a moving rendition of Leona Lewis’s ‘Run’ to an all star panel of Tom Jones, Jessie J, will.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue.

The Level 2 Music Diploma student said of her passion for singing: ‘I loved music before I was able to talk properly. I used to sing along to songs with my family. My first live performance came when I sang in church with my sister and seeing the positive reaction from everybody lifted me and made me want to sing more.’

She has also shown her versatility and star quality in several college performances in front of industry names including award winning English rap star Akala, and is due to perform at the college’s end of year Music show taking place on June 21st at the Wornington Centre, Wornington Road, from 7- 8.30pm.

Head of Music at Kensington and Chelsea College, Paul Hall said: ‘Ruth-Ann is a credit to herself and the college. She has an incredible talent that guarantees we will be seeing more of her. She’s the one to watch for the future! We’re all really proud of how far she reached on the show and what she has achieved at such a young age.’

College Principal, Mike Jutsum, added: ‘Ruth-Ann had all of us glued to our seats on Saturday nights and will be missed by her fans at the college. She is a shining example of the many talented students we have at Kensington and Chelsea College and embodies the hard work of the tutors who strive to give students the best start to their career.’
