Video: Leanne Mitchell releases first music video since victory in BBC1 show The Voice

Leanne Mitchell has launched her first music video since winning BBC1 talent show, The Voice.

The 28-year-old singer from Oulton Broad began filming just days after she fought of her rivals to secure a coveted record deal with Island Records.

The video is designed to help promote her new single out on July 16 – a cover of Whitney Houston's Run To You.

It is believed she has signed a recording contract worth �500,000.

She delivered strong performances of James Brown's It's A Man's Man's Man's World and Whitney Houston's Run To You to beat her fellow performers Bo Bruce and Tyler James in the final stage of the talent show.

Leanne, who is also a voice coach at a theatre company based at Potters Leisure Resort in Hopton, was still a pupil at Benjamin Britten High School, in Lowestoft, when she started performing at Potters at the age of 15.

She also met her husband Rob Hurren, 31, while working there.
