IF UP-AND-COMING Ipswich talent Paris Morgan's recent form at the Silkstone Eisteddfod is anything to go by, the young singer could have a big career in music ahead of her.

The 12-year-old, classically trained songstress took out her Under 13 age group for the second consecutive year at the Silkstone Eisteddfod in 2012, adding to previous honours at the Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod - which she also won for the last two years running.

Proud vocal coach Helen Coleman said young Paris had loads of potential.

"She's an exceptional talent," Ms Coleman said.

"She is naturally gifted with a beautiful voice and a very accomplished technique for her age."

It was a successful eisteddfod for Ms Coleman, who also enjoyed seeing another of her students, Tahnee Baker-Clarke, place second behind Paris in the Under 13 category.

"I am extremely proud of these young ladies," she said.

Paris, who has been a student of Ms Coleman's Voce Bella school for the last five years, lent her talents to the Ipswich Remembrance Day ceremony at The Workshops Rail Museum and is already preparing to star at the Carols by the Lake at Springfield in December.
