SINGING sensations ScotSoul were 'pitch perfect' in Alexandria Main Street on Friday- as BBC cameras rolled into town to film a segment for their hit show 'Pitch Battle.'

The harmonica quintet, who boast members from the Dumbarton, Alexandria, Bonhill and the Jamestown areas, were centre of attention as they begin the countdown to this month's grand final of the hit BBC talent show.

Last month the five members- Des McFarlane, Louise McFarlane, Natalie James, James Smart, and Shirley McAlpine- struck a chord with legendary singer Chaka Khan during the show's semi-final.

They brought songstress Khan to her feet when they sang a rendition of her own song 'Ain’t Nobody.'

Scot Soul were up against barbershop quartet group Fly Boys, who took it in turns to perform Chaka’s iconic hits – with a place in the final up for grabs.

And, after dazzling the judging panel and millions of TV viewers across the UK, the group has now made it through to the live final – where they’ll get another chance to song alongside the American music icon.

On Friday, though, they hit the streets of Alexandria in a bid to drum up public support for the live final- where £50,000 will be up for grabs.

Speaking about reaching the grand final mum of three Shirley, 44, who owns En Point Dancewear, in Alexandria Main Street, said: "The reaction has been fantastic and the support from local people has been incredible.

"It does still feel a bit surreal and we've yet to take it all in but we are already preparing for the final- we're rehearsing every night!

"Singing is our passion and we are ramping it up.

"Hopefully it will be worth it and we'll see what happens on the day."

Fellow band member James, 44, from Alexandria, who doubles up as a Freddie Mercury tribute singer and, amazingly, a hypnotist, said: "We can't believe the final's only a couple of weeks away. We've not really got our heads around it yet but I'm sure we will."

James, though, admitted that the cash prize up for grabs is not foremost on the minds of the band members.

"Yes, it's life changing money but we aren't even thinking about the prize money," he revealed.

"We get to sing with Chaka Khan again in the final, so it already feels like we' ve won!

"When we entered the competition at first, we just thought it would be great to take part.

"The heats took place in Glasgow and we were pleased to get as far as we did. Now we are in the final and the reaction to it has been overwhelming.

"But we're ever so proud of the support we have had, not just the local area, but all from all over.

"We've been given support and backing throughout the UK and it's all very much appreciated."

All the members of Scot Soul were solo performers in our own rights for many years but they decided to join forces earlier this year and form a brand new vocal harmony group.

Now they are in the live final the public will get the chance to vote for their favourites.
