HUNDREDS of fans were treated to a concert by singer and former University of Bolton student Laura White.
The 26-year-old, from Atherton, performed a free concert for 500 people at the university, where she used to study creative writing.
Laura, who found fame when she reached the final seven of The X Factor in 2008, said: “It’s so amazing, I’ve not been home in months.
“It’s wonderful to be able to come back to the university that I had to leave.
“I was doing music for years anyway and the uni was very understanding of my songwriting and the gigging I was doing and the travelling everywhere.
“I was a writer as well. I was in Mark Ronson’s band and loads of different things. I always so believed in my music that it always had to come first.
“Now all the uni has changed so much and it looks amazing. But it’s lovely to come home and see everyone.”
She relocated to London’s bustling Covent Garden more than five years ago and has been carving out a career as a singer and songwriter, having written music for Cher Lloyd, Eliza Doolittle and Leona Lewis.
On Friday, she performed songs including tracks from her EP, What My Mother Taught Me, to be released on November 10.
And on Saturday, she visited radio station Bolton FM to take part in a pizza eating challenge with presenter Saeed Atcha.
