A musical teenager hopes he is going to hit the right notes in the final of UK Unsigned this Sunday.

Drew-Levi Huntsman hopes to top the bill as he performs two of his own songs and a cover in the final of competition at the Shepherds Bush Empire.

The 17-year-old said: I am on my school holidays at the moment so am practicing all the time.

I first heard about this competition through a friend at the beginning of the year and thought it was right up my street because its more for soloists than big bands.

I got into writing my own songs about two years ago, when I was doing my GCSE musi

I had to focus on the music of one artist in depth and I chose Elton John because he is a pop artist and does musical theatre, the perfect combination. Lots of people say you cant do both but he is proof you can.

Drew-Levi explained his ultimate dream is to be a professional singer-songwriter and he willing to work really hard to be a success.
