SDLP spokesperson for Culture, Arts and Leisure Karen McKevitt has congratulated Andrea Begley on winning the BBC show the Voice.

The South Down MLA said, “I want to warmly congratulate Andrea Begley for winning the Voice, and doing all the people of this region proud.

“Along with Leah McFall, Andrea displayed incredible God-given talent and no doubt both girls have a long career in the music business ahead of them.

“Andrea’s family and friends will be extremely proud of her achievement given the fiercely competitive nature of the show. In particular her mother Philomena who herself has a distinguished musical career will be particular proud of the accomplishment.

McKevitt added, “I wish Andrea every success as she forges a musical career. We can all be immensely proud of her achievement and I look forward to seeing her go from strength to strength.”
