A Whitney Houston tribute act - who won a TV impersonation show at the weekend - is coming to South Tyneside.

Belinda Davids walked away the winner of BBC One’s ‘Even Better Than The Real Thing’ on Saturday after wowing viewers with her Whitney Houston act.

Now fans can see her next week at The Customs House, South Shields.

The South African songstress has performed all over the world as the iconic singer in The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show.

She was one of the acts brought together for the hour-long special on Saturday night, which featured tributes to George Michael, Madonna and Michael Jackson, among others.

After sailing through the first and second rounds and making it to the final three, Davids was voted the best act on the night by the live studio audience.

This followed a flawless performance of I Have Nothing and a duet with the Michael Jackson tribute act on ‘It’s Not Right But It’s OK’.

Presenter Paddy McGuinness tweeted afterwards: “A well-deserved winner!”

Now the talented performer will take to the stage at The Customs House, in Mill Dam, South Shields, on Wednesday, September 27, to perform The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show.

Starting at 7.45pm, the two-hour spectacular is aimed at being an uplifting tribute to the music and memory of Houston, featuring a seven-piece band, choreographed dancers, replica costuming and state-of- the-art lighting and effects combine to create a spectacular concert experience.

Tickets, priced £23, are available from the box office on: 0191 454 1234 or online at: www.customshouse.co.uk.
