BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : AFRO-BRITISH " HANNAH BARRETT " A 17 - year old STUDENT FROM SOUTH NORWOOD, WHO COMPETED IN X - FACTOR TALENTS :
BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY Hannah Barrett is a 17-year-old student from South Norwood. She was introduced to music by her father, who died when she was nine. Her mother told her to leave their house after an argument when she was 10, and she moved into a social services' shelter.
Barrett sang "Read All About It, Pt. III" in her room audition and "One Night Only" at her arena audition. She performed "I'd Rather Go Blind" at boot camp and "A Change Is Gonna Come" and "Fighter" at judges' houses.
In week 3, Barrett was in the bottom two with Miss Dynamix and was saved after only Barlow opted to send her home. In week 5, she was in the bottom two again, this time with Abi Alton. Scherzinger refused to vote as both acts were in her category, so it was left to a majority vote. Barlow and Osbourne both chose to send Alton home, and Barrett was saved (Walsh said he would have sent Alton home as well). She was again in the bottom two for the third time in week 7 and was sent home by the judges with only Scherzinger choosing to save her, therefore narrowly missing out for a place in the quarter-final and finishing in sixth place.
