A singer/songwriter from Caversham has spoken out about his ‘whirlwind adventure’ during his time as a Britains Got Talent semi-finalist.

Ace Clvrk, who works as a charity worker in Reading, first appeared on the ITV talent show on Saturday, May 25 where he wowed judges and audiences with his stunning vocals.

Despite receiving the feared song stop from Simon Cowell just bars into his number, Clvrk’s rendition of Lovely by ‘Billie Eilish’ brought tears to their eyes.

After receiving four yeses from the judges during the auditions in Manchester, he moved through to the semi-finals.

Although his Britains Got Talent journey was cut short last night (28/5) in the Live semi-finals, the Reading lad told the Chronicle about his 'exciting' plans for the future.

“It’s been a whirlwind few months,” Ace explained. “I wanted to go on the show to show people what I can do. It’s really hard being an artist to set yourself apart and find the people that are going to love your music.

“I feel like I’ve learnt so much from putting myself in that situation and I’ve proven to myself that I have the confidence to take my music to the next level.”

Ace started his music journey with a Reading music programme called 'sofa sounds', where a group of musicians meets up every week to perform their music in intimate venues.

From overwhelming joy to periods of self-doubt, the Reading singer described his journey over the course of the last few months.

He added: “I really wanted to make myself proud with how I came across. I really wanted people to see my personality and I’m very rarely proud of myself.

“I think that I did everything that I could have done especially in the semi-finals, There were definitely a few struggles along the way but I overcame them and gave the best performance that I could have done.”

Over the past few months, Ace has had the opportunity to work with top producers to release his own music in the coming months.

“I’m so excited to get some music out and get something that people can go and buy. With the release of music, I hope to go on tour, get headline shows and slots at festivals.

“The most exciting thing is getting my music out and allowing people to hear what I’m about. The true story of myself will be through the original music that I produce. It’s really incredible and I’m really excited.”
