An aspiring singing star from Ipswich today set out her intention to put her hometown on the map, after a successful audition in the room audition stage of this year’s X Factor.
Ten Senah wowed the judges in the Manchester auditions, which was aired at the weekend, as she performed her own original song, called 15 Minutes.
The 25-year-old former Northgate High School pupil has been singing since she was 17 and has released her own music through iTunes, but now she hopes more exposure will be a big boost to her career.
“The feedback has been really good and people have liked my original song,” she said.
“To go out there and do your own song and have the judges be so positive – that’s amazing.”

During her audition in front of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Mel B and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, now known as Cheryl, Ten, of east Ipswich, admitted she had enjoyed Manchester’s nightlife and had not slept prior to her performance.
But after her audition, the quartet were full of praise for her singing talent and agreed for her to go through to the arena auditions.
Now she hopes the exposure will be a boost to Ipswich as well as herself.
She added: “There is so much talent in Ipswich. We are not given enough credit for how much talent we have got.
“Jade Peters going on The Voice, De’ Vide on The Voice and X Factor. We have so much talent and I am sure there are others too, but we just need to be put on the map.”
