Wodonga teenage singing sensation Eliza Spalding has been invited to attend an Academy of Country Music course in Tamworth

Wodonga teenage singing sensation Eliza Spalding has been invited to attend an Academy of Country Music course in Tamworth.

The eight-day program runs from July 1 to 9 and involves just 25 young performers from across the nation, and also includes a business management course for her mother Sandy.

Eliza, 14, was selected after an exacting application process which included providing a performance audition video, biography, songwriting sample, a biography, industry references and more.

She and her younger brother Zac perform regularly across the region and have been asked to perform on stage with Bill Chambers during the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January.

Eliza has already been approached by music management and recording companies.

Her father Andrew said the family was looking for sponsorship to help cover the $4500 cost of the July trip.
