The Voice UK: Leah McFall to dedicate performance to late sister

Leah McFall (The Voice UK)

The Voice UK favourite Leah McFall will dedicate her performance tonight to her late sister.

It's the semi-finals this evening and Leah will be competing for a spot in the final next weekend.

The 23-year-old however will be singing for older sister Rebekah, who died in a car crash aged 19 back in 2006.

According to The Sun, Leah is hoping to win the series in honour of her late sibling.

Her Dad John told the newspaper: “Rebekah would always tell Leah that she would be a star some day.”

Meanwhile, Leah herself has been full of praise for her coach

"He's really encouraging of my uniqueness and with my vocals. He is fantastic as he's exactly the same off camera as he is on camera," she said this week. "He's crazy. He's such a genius and not just musically. He speaks in metaphors and it's never until the very end you know what he means. Only occasionally, I don't know what he means."

She added to DigitalSpy: "It's been really intense this week and probably the toughest yet, but it's all great experience to have as well."

The Voice UK continues tonight on BBC One at 7PM.
