SHE is the Sheffield singer whose stunning voice saw her named 2010 UK young chorister of the year.

Now 16-year-old Ella Taylor, who won the BBC title after singing at St Paul’s Cathedral in London, will perform a special gig at a city church.

She will sing Stabat Mater Pergolisi with friend Abi Thompson as part of the Wilderness Exhibition currently being held at Wesley Hall Methodist Church, in Crookes.

It takes place, on Thursday from 8pm. Free entry.

Listen Up at arts exhibition

IT is described as a feast for the senses complete with sound sculptures, audio installations and digital visuals.

That means, we think, there should be some interesting stuff to listen to and look at.

It’s Listen Up - a new exhibition being held at Sheffield’s Creative Arts Development Space, a former cutlery factory in Smithfields.

Steve Rimmer, owner of CADS, said: “The contrast of the old industrial spaces against the ultra modern visuals should be interesting.”

It runs from Saturday, April 16, to Wednesday, May 4. A performance event featuring Mark Fell, Neil Webb, Ron Wright and Ian Baxter takes place on Saturday, April 30, 7pm-12am.

WE’RE a city of square eyes it seems.

Sheffield’s favourite thing to come from America are the films and TV shows, according to a new survey of people here.
