THURROCK’S homegrown singing sensation Louisa Johnson will be part of the line up for a girl power inspired gig right here in Essex this summer.

Organisers have announced a powerhouse of a concert, to be held at Audley End House and Gardens in Saffron Walden.

Called ‘Heritage Live’ the show aims to celebrate the UK’s long-standing tradition as world leaders in girl-power pop music and will see Louisa headlining along with Jess Glynne and Ella Eyre.

The concert will take place on Saturday July 14 and tickets go on general sale today (Friday).

Catapulted into the charts in 2014 with features on No. 1 singles ‘My Love’ with Route 94 and the Grammy Award winning ‘Rather Be’ with Clean Bandit, Jess Glynne, has broken the chart record as the most successful British female solo artist with a staggering six No.1 UK singles. Meanwhile

Ella Eyre’s instantly recognisable voice was first heard of Rudimental’s 2013 ubiquitous No.1 single ‘Waiting All Night’. After being recognised on both the BBC Sound of 2014 poll and the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award shortlist, her first string of singles as a solo artist saw her win Best Newcomer at the MOBO Awards. Completing the line up, Louisa, from Chafford Hundred, Thurrock, won the 2015 series of The X Factor, the show’s youngest ever winner aged just 17,. Releasing the platinum single ‘Tears’ with Clean Bandit in 2015, Louisa released a string of solo hits including ‘Forever Young’, ‘So Good’, and ‘Best Behaviour’, before collaborating with Olly Murs on the track ‘Unpredictable’. With 2018 shaping up to be big year for Louisa, she released the single ‘YES’ featuring American Rapper 2 Chainz, with her debut album being set for later this year.
