Listen: New single from girl whose duet on Leeds night out with busker racked up 20 million views

Have your say

She is the young woman on a night out in Leeds who paired up with a busker to perform Leonard Cohen’s classic Hallelujah.

Back in 2017 Jade Helliwell was partying in the city centre when she spotted busker Dawid Osial performing on a street corner.

After she asked to take the mic, the musician didn’t know what to expect - but was blown away by Jade’s soaring vocals.

Now the Batley singer-songwriter is due to release her latest single, Stormchaser, on Friday, March 8.

Jade said: “Stormchaser is a bit of a different release for me. I’m excited to show this different side of mymusic to everyone. It really paints a strong image of being hooked on someonewho you know is no good for you but you just keep on chasing after them and running straightinto the eye of a storm.I hope people relate to it but also enjoy singing and dancing along to this one!”
