Yateley's very own Alexa Goddard saw her music career reach new heights at the weekend, as she shared a festival stage with the likes of Bruno Mars, Outkast and Ellie Goulding.

The ex-Yateley School pupil, 25 - a recent signing to Jay Z's record label Roc Nation - opened the Main Stage of Wireless Festival, held in Birmingham on Saturday (July 5) and then north London the following day.

The singer, who has just released the single and video for Marilyn, was awestruck with the entire event, a gigantic leap from her Yateley Gig on the Green performance back in 2011.

And fans were quick to respond on Twitter, showing their support for her whirlwind journey.

See how Get Hampshire has followed Alexa Goddard's progress.
