A teenager from Norwich is set to release his first album after appearing on The Voice Kids.
Perry Cooke, who was mentored by will.i.am on the show, was one of 12 children to reach the 2017 semi-finals after singing a rendition of Imagine by John Lennon.
He is now set to release his first album, called Unplugged, which features the song alongside hits by Ed Sheeran.
All the money raised from the sale of the album will be donated to two charities – the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital Skin Cancer Appeal and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
