'To be told by Tom Jones that I have a beautiful voice makes all the self-doubt feel trivial'

City & Hackney Life Skills Recovery Worker Vivienne Isebor started with an audience made out of service users on wards and went on national television winning millions of people over with her voice.

Vivienne has joined team Tom Jones at The Voice and will be coached by his team throughout the competition.

‘I've always loved singing and music. It brings me so much life and joy and gets me through the day. I started off singing on small scales, open mics, local jam sessions and slowly built up my confidence.

‘The main things that gave me the courage to go on such a big platform is all the support and kind words I've received when I perform.

‘Sometimes when I walk around the ward singing patients have told me to go on the X-Factor, and this year I thought why not! With all the support, kind words and encouragement I applied and got through to the blind stages’ said Vivienne.

‘To be told by Tom Jones that I have a beautiful voice makes all the self-doubt feel trivial. I believe in myself more and I have an opportunity to reach a platform bigger than I ever have. Cannot wait to see what else is in store’ Vivienne added.

Vivienne Isebor will be performing on Friday, 21 February at Hay Events business launch at 13-27 Station Road, Wood Green and on Wednesday, 26 February at the Women N Words live music event.
