A PAIR of songstresses will be try-ing to keep their cool as they perform their brand new number one single tomorrow at a sell-out rugby match set to be attended by over 65,000 people.

The Laurettes, made up of local musicians Lauren O'Donoghue and Lynette Beaton, won a nationwide talent competition - with the prize being the opportunity to play at Murrayfield stadium.

The pair have also been celebrating after reaching number four in the Official Amazon Music Charts with their new single 'Home Bird', competing with the likes of Adele and Ed Sheeran.

The delighted duo kicked off their performances at the Autumn Nations Series rugby matches with a Scotland versus Tonga showdown and they are back this weekend for the kick-off against South Africa.

The local singing sensations dreamed of performing the single on a national level, but say this opportunity is a 'dream come true'.

Wemyss Bay woman Lauren, 28, told the Tele: "We were so ecstatic when we found out about this.

"It's a chance we could've only dreamed of.

"Being at Murrayfield and getting to perform to that size of crowd is unbelievable.

"We've managed to gain lots of new followers and fans and we've even had our song played on BBC Radio 1.

"That was surreal."

As well as performing in the Fan Village, the duo's music has also been featured on the Scottish Rugby social media channels and played in the stadium too.

Lynette, from Gourock, added: "We always said we'd love to reach a bigger Scottish audience after releasing our first single, but didn't quite expect our first big gig to be at a Scottish rugby game.

"Being able to connect with people and meet new musicians is also amazing.

"To be in the charts alongside worldwide musicians is such a boost for us too.

"It really shows how much you can achieve when you put your mind to it."
