Bella Penfold is one to watch for 2019, after shooting to success in the 2018 series of The X Factor. Performing her rendition of the hit Stormzy song; “Blinded by Your Grace, Pt.2” at the Six Chair Challenge, Simon Cowell honoured Bella with his ‘Golden Buzzer’ and she quickly progressed all the way to the Quarter Finals. Throughout the series she continued to captivate the prime-time television audience. Her successes will undoubtedly continue as Bella is currently writing songs which are sure to be an amalgamation of her experiences, spent moving between Spain and England.
Having experienced a difficult childhood due to bullying, Bella struggled with anxiety but she looks to transform her experiences into positivity leading in example to inspire her peers and future generation. Whilst growing up Bella used performance to help reach her desired pinnacle in health and wellness, specifically dance, including ballet, tap and musical theatre at the Itali Conti Associates in Tunbridge Wells. Her efforts have always been highly credited and continue to do so; she was awarded an acting scholarship in her secondary school and also held a coveted spot in the National Youth Theatre. At the age of 19 Bella is constantly fulfilling her ever-growing ambitions.
At the start of her career Bella takes inspiration from a variety of musical genres; evidently leading to her unique and fresh attitude to vocals. Performance gives Bella a platform to make a change, having already impacted the judges and viewers of The X Factor, she is looking forward to continuing her inspiring successes into 2019.
