Laura Wright, from Framsden, near Debenham, is part of the hugely successful all-girl group All Angels, who won widespread acclaim with their eponymous first album last year.

They are one of 10 nominations for the classical Album of the Year award alongside the likes of Sting's Songs From The Labyrinth and Sir Paul's classical oratorio, Ecce Cor Meum (Behold My Heart) - a recording in English and Latin with members of the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields.

Other contenders for Album of the Year include Welsh singers Katherine Jenkins and Bryn Terfel, mechanic-turned-tenor Alfie Boe and teen violinist Nicola Benedetti.
