Anthonia Edwards wants to use her medical training during her singing career.

The 25-year-old star initially trained as a nurse but landed a record deal with EMI after winning 'The Voice' in October and explained that the "skills" attained in the two professions are comparable.

She said: "The skills that I learned training to be a nurse, such as how to work under pressure, were transferable in the show. Also how to reflect, reflection is a huge part of nursing because you have to reflect on the decisions you v made throughout the day whilst caring for people and it is the same in music."

Anthonia released a cover of Justin Bieber's hit 'Anyone' as her first single and is now writing new material and insisted her new career has not put an end to her days as a nurse.

She told the Daily Star newspaper's Wired column: "We are in the writing process now so it's just a case of submitting what I have written for release.

"This platform has given me a push to release songs I have written because I didn't expect to win the show but I went for it and this is what happens, The way we live now there is no restriction. I can set up my music in a way that I can still nurse and put out music at the same time - the world is your oyster."

Shortly after her victory, Anthonia explained that she was "still not over" winning the ITV talent show.

She wrote on Instagram: "Still not over this. Thank you so much for all of the love, you guys are unbelievable!"
