2017 Winner - Martha Woods
Martha joined "Lost in Song" in 2013 as its youngest singer by far. Initially shy and quiet, Martha's confidence grew quickly as she demonstrated impressive musicality, both in her singing and when she played the violin or guitar. Regularly achieving distinction grades in her musical studies, she is now also a member of the Cornwall Youth Music Orchestra. Additionally, during this summer's "Sing Along the River", Martha was a fantastic hit with her younger sister who together performed as "The Woodcarts". Her skill, practice, talent, patience and reliability is frequently commented upon by those associated with "Lost in Song" and Martha has become one of the most vital and dependable members within the 60-strong community choir.
