A popular contestant from BBC television’s talent show The Voice is starring at a Wingrave pub on Saturday (August 10).

Nadeem Leigh, who was on judge Danny O’Donoghue’s team, got through to the battling rounds.

And now he’s preparing to sing at the Rose and Crown, thanks to landlady Sue Dixon’s son Jake.

Mrs Dixon said: “We are so excited about this.

“You don’t need a ticket, just come along. He will probably sing indoors, it would be lovely outside and we have the facilities so it is an option, but generally we have bands inside.”

Mrs Dixon’s family originally come from Stevenage and her son Jake’s friend Dan still lives there. Dan’s family know Nadeem, who also hails from Stevenage, and as a result Jake has become friends with him.

“Jake asked him if he would come and sing at our pub and he said yes,” said Mrs Dixon.

Nadeem, 34, plays guitar and writes his own music.

Mrs Dixon said: “He has a lovely rich voice, he sings modern stuff but he’s also a real crooner, too.

“He can do a big mix, there’s no particular play list.

“I’ll ask him to sing Creep by Radiohead then we’ll see how flexible he is!”
