Faryl, who shot to fame during the 2008 series of Britain’s Got Talent, is no stranger to performing at packed out stadiums, including Wembley and Twickenham.

And the singer will be doing it once again when she sings the English national anthem at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on November 5 for the England v Scotland rugby league game as part of the 2016 Four Nations tournament, which will be aired on the BBC.

Faryl has also been asked to sing the New Zealand anthem for the evening game against Australia at the arena which has a capacity of more than 30,000 spectators.

Other performances this year include Faryl joining G4 on their G4-Back Together Tour.

This life of performing live in front of thousands of people seems to suit Faryl, who was described by Simon Cowell as ‘literally one in a million’ when she was on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent.

Since appearing on the show, she has also sung for Royalty, dueted with Russell Watson and met a host of celebrities while performing at venues and events across the country.

But even with a busy calendar of performances, Faryl is still currently studying singing at the Guildhall Conservortoire in London.
