Kirsty Belle is a solo artist from Scotland. Kirsty dreamt of being on the big stage performing since she was a small child and was renowned for her singing ability all throughout her teens, winning every singing competition and musical theatre role she entered. Sadly though she decided to leave her singing dream behind when she was knocked back and rejected in her quest for fame in her audition for Britain’s televised talent show, Pop Idol, in 2002. Kirsty worked in sales for 10 years proceeding this until in late 2013 when she entered a talent competition in Sydney, believing it to be her ‘last chance’ to prove to herself and to others that she did in fact have the talent to follow her dream once again. After several months of grueling heats she won that competition and immediately after handed in her notice and left her corporate job. Since then she has pursued her dream relentlessly and was lucky enough to be offered a scholarship at MnM Institute. Kirsty now gigs in and around Sydney, in cocktail bars and restaurants, and most recently at a fashion show on Melbourne Cup Day and from that performance booked to sing on a harbour cruise for Success Woman Network’s corporate Christmas party. Her journey is only just beginning though. Her dream and vision to achieve worldwide phenomena and success to the same level as her idol Adele is what keeps Kirsty inspired and motivated daily to make exactly that happen.
