OVER 18'S WINNER SERIES 2
My name is K Marie and I started writing songs from about the age of 12. I grew up listening to Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys who I loved their range and high notes and I loved Keyshia Cole in my teen years who just had so much passion! so I'd say they are my vocal inspirations. I started to get noticed for my songwriting skills when I studied performing arts as a GCSE, I even wrote for my peers and my music teachers would select me to do studio sessions at school and I also represented the school in a talent show singing one of my own songs. Now years later I still continue to write and record music funded by myself and have giged and done open mics. I have a couple of songs released on social platforms and one music video. My songs are inspired by true events that have happened in my life so as long as i'm inspired i'll continue to write, thank you.

I am 15 years old and from London. I discovered my love of dancing and acting when I was 3 years old and danced recreationally until about 11 when I started training and competing with Spirit Young Dance Company (Spirit YDC) for about 2 years. I love training in all styles of dance whenever I’m given the opportunity. I like dance competitions as it gives me an opportunity to challenge myself, learn from other dancers and get critiques/constructive criticisms, advice and directions from judges. I try to be as versatile as possible by training with different professionals in the industry. I currently train with iD Company directed by Ryan Jenkins and MPA Academy with James Collins as well as regular workshops with different teachers through Fit The Mould Dance (FTM) with Natasha Mould. I love being creative in so many ways and enjoy the performing arts and being on stage.
I played the role of Lavender in Matilda The Musical, West End (2015-16). I’ve also performed in lots of other theatres and stages including National Theatre, Leicester Square Theatre, Shaftesbury Theatre, main stage at Can You Dance? (CYD?) Convention, Move It main stage and have been a finalist on the Move It freestyle stage.

I enjoy all things artistic. I love calligraphy and love creating and designing artistic gifts in my spare time. It is very rewarding to see friends and families’ reactions when they receive a personalised gift from me.
I am very comfortable in front of the camera and feel that performing is my happy place. I filmed a TV dance Promo for CBBC directed by Parris Goebel which was broadcast for a few months from August 2017 I performed and danced live in the ITV X Factor Finals with MPA Academy (December 2018). Over the summer of 2019 I was involved in filming for the prime time BBC One series ‘The Greatest Dancer’ and have recently been in a Netflix Christmas movie due out Christmas 2020. In November 2019 I spent a week on set, filming a featured role for an advertising campaign which is due to air in 2021.

Most recently, I was featured in an editorial on Photo Vogue Italia online (August 2019. I was also published as a special ‘Big Dreamers’ feature in LaBelle Kidz&Teen International Fashion Magazine, October 2018.
Dancing is my biggest passion and my dream is to become a professional dancer and performer and to make everyone smile through dance.
It was very exciting to be creative during lockdown with my best friend Vaidile by filming in isolation and to go on and win the first series of Undiscovered Talent (under 18’s) Online competition.
