Local lad Jordan O'Keefe takes to the stage on ITV's Britain's Got Talent tonight as he aims for a chart topping career in the music industry.

The Londonderry teenager hopes to win over Simon Cowell with his version of Ed Sheeran’s Little Things.

Jordan, who only began playing the guitar when he was 14,  already has over a quarter of a million views on YouTube, where he covers songs by the likes of Rihanna. He has also signed a management deal with Totally Amazing Records in Glasgow and is working on his debut single.

You can also see Jordan perform live at the Fearless charity boxing event in aid of the Oscar Knox Appeal on May 14 in Belfast City Hall. Tickets are available from the Belfast Welcome Centre.
