Britain's Got Talent champion Sydnie Christmas has excitedly announced her first UK tour, describing it as another "pinch me" moment in her burgeoning career.

Having wowed the judges on the ITV talent show, where Simon Cowell rated one of her performances an "11 out of 10", Sydnie is set to release her rendition of the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic 'Starlight Express' later this month.

The song's release was prompted by none other than Lloyd Webber himself after he came across her cover on Instagram and encouraged her to make a record of it. Reflecting on this encouragement, Sydnie shared her elation: "I was in Starlight Express in Germany for years and it was such a huge part of my life. The song 'Starlight Express' means hope and light. I felt drawn to its meaning and the song resonated with me. I just had to record my own version, and Andrew Lloyd Webber told me I should release it. I can't believe it."

She continued, expressing the significance of this moment: "It's such a full circle moment. But every moment is a pinch me moment. I'm getting to live my dreams, I'm just the luckiest girl."

Sydnie, who is gearing up to release her new album 'My Way' in September and will hit the road starting October 5, captured the hearts of both the Britain's Got Talent judges and viewers with her enchanting acts, reports the Mirror.

Reflecting on her journey, Sydnie recounted her perseverance in the face of adversity: "After 10 years of trying to make it in the West End and feeling like nothing was happening, I was very close to giving it all up. But I couldn't, it means everything to me, and I am so glad I kept going."
