Belle Voci at The Voice Final

Their success led to a whirlwind year of engagements and the launch of two new albums.

Sophie said: “The contest was tough, but it was great fun.

“We were all friends throughout it, so it is really fantastic that Ruti can join us and the crew for our celebration gig.

“We predict a terrific night to thank everyone for their support.”
