Anthonia Edwards is a talented singer from Blackheath, London. She has always had an interest in singing, ever since she discovered it at the age of 6, going to church with her parents. Despite being described as a shy child, Anthonia took the chance and applied for the TV show ‘The Voice’. After taking a break away from music, she went into nursing and graduated as a registered nurse. However, The Voice relit an old flame for Anthonia showcasing her ability, going on to be crowned as the winner of the eleventh season.

In the final stages of the show, Anthonia was able to perform a duet with her coach for the show, Sir Tom Jones. He went on to say that ‘’her voice and talent rose above a very competitive field and speaks for itself’’. Anthonia battled it out with four contestants, being voted through to the final sing off with Olly Murs’ contestant David Adeogun.
