Ipswich’s Jade Mayjean Peters will be performing live in Ipswich on Saturday before and after her appearance on The Voice.


The 21-year-old singing sensation, from Rushmere, will be putting on an acoustic show outside Debenham’s in Ipswich town centre between noon and 1pm on Saturday.

Later she’ll be watching The Voice in the Spread Eagle pub with family and friends before performing a set with her band.

Jade has been telling The Star about how her life has changed since she appeared in the hit show.

Now that her celebrity status has increased in the town, Jade is getting used to turning heads.

“A lot of kids go, ‘Mum, mum, it’s Jade from The Voice’, and other people want photographs, it feels really good,” she said.

“Everybody has been so supportive and really rooting for me and my fan base has really expanded massively.

“A lot of people are coming to watch me and the more people to come and watch the better… It’s a showcase of how hard you’ve been working and what you’ve been doing.”

  • There are 4 stars of the voice, the judges. She is not one of them. Hope she has kept her bar job. "Just in case"

  • Participant in idiot-box karaoke contest performs outside shop. I can barely contain my indifference. Pity the poor market traders who won't be able to get away from it.
