A talented Rugby songstress is joining forces with Rudimental star Ella Eyre.

Emily Burns will join the singer for a gig in Coventry next month. Ella, a 19-year-old Brit School graduate, scored a number one last year with Rudimental, as the lead vocalist on Waiting All Night, and spent the year touring with them.

Her unique husky voice was back in full force on her debut solo EP Deeper, which came out in December.

Taking influences from soul, Motown and pop, Eyre tells the BBC her music also benefits from some “beefy production”.

Emily is looking forward to the gig and has always admired the star’s work.

She said: “I am so thrilled to be supporting Ella.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of hers so I really can’t wait.”

She is hoping for a full house at Kasbah Nightclub in Primrose Hill Street, on March 8.

“It’s going to be an amazing night,” said Emily.

“I hope to see lots of people from Rugby there.”

Emily’s music style is influenced by artists such as Stevie Wonder, Corinne Bailey Ray, and Ed Sheeran.

Her debut single, Plasters, Glitter and Glue, was released in August.

She has a huge fan base at Rugby High School for Girls - her secondary school that she attended until leaving school to pursue her career in music.

She performed at their foundation day with her recent song ‘Perfect Ten’. Also December 2013 she held a Christmas concert for the whole school which was well received.

Tickets are £5 and it starts at Primrose Hill St, Coventry, at 8.30pm.
