Soprano Laura Wright has earned a reputation as rugby's favourite songstress when singing before England matches.
And now she has bowled over cricket fans after wowing the Oval crowd who went to cheer on England in the final Ashes Test against Australia on Thursday.
The 25-year-old welcomed the two teams on to pitch with England having already secured the series following their stunning victory at Trent Bridge in the fourth Test.
With Alastair Cook and his charges looking to end the series on a high, they were welcomed on to the pitch by the voice of Wright.
Wearing a bright red jump suit, Wright song the familiar Jerusalem hymn in front of a packed house in south London.
It isn't the first time Wright has wowed cricket fans, having already shown off her singing talents during the Test matches at Edgbaston and Trent Bridge.
Wright has become a star on the classical scene and has won a number of awards including BBC’s Young Chorister Of The Year in 2005 and gained a first-class degree at the Royal College Of Music.
As well as taking the classical signing route, Wright is an avid sport fan and was no stranger to a pitch when growing up.
While attending the £16,000-a-year Framlingham College near Woodbridge, Suffolk, where she had a scholarship, she captained the school’s hockey, netball and tennis teams.
She also went on to represent the East of England at hockey and competed in the national athletics school championships by throwing the javelin.
And after becoming a favourite among the Twickenham crowd at England rugby matches, Wright has now trekked up and down the country to sing for cricket fans.
She's no stranger to a large crowd either, having performed at Wembley for football’s Champions League and FA Cup finals.
