Lianne La Havas: I sang in secret

Mercury Music Prize nominee Lianne La Havas has confessed she would still find it hard to sing in front of her friends and family.

The rising star - whose album Is Your Love Big Enough? is out now - revealed she kept her vocal talents to herself as a child.

"Singing was always my secret thing," she said.

"If ever I was in my room singing and heard someone coming upstairs, I'd go silent and just sit there not answering.

"Even now I'd struggle to sing in front of my friends and family."

The 23-year-old's album was released earlier this year and just a few weeks later was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize alongside the likes of The Maccabees, Richard Hawley, Alt-J, Michael Kiwanuka and Jessie Ware. The prize will be awarded on October 10.

Lianne said: "It's amazing to be nominated. I didn't know until the day the shortlist was announced - I was asked by the organisers if I was free on the night of the ceremony, which is their way of telling you you're on the list.

"Obviously critical validation isn't the be-all-and-end-all of being a musician, but as a UK artist, it's a dream.

"Just being nominated is enough and feels like winning."
