GEMMA Collins wowed the crowd at a charity gig with her first live performance last night – as she embarks on her new career as a pop star.
The 38-year-old Towie star is ready to take on the pop charts, and showed off her incredible vocals at the Jog-On to Cancer event in London last night.
Taking to the stage at Proud Embankment, Gemma belted out Shirley Bassey classic Big Spender, bringing plenty of sass to her performance.
Wearing a slinky all-black ensemble, Gemma shimmied and sashayed her away around the stage, singing alongside boyfriend James Argent’s band.
When she finished her performance – which was being filmed for her reality show Diva Fever – Gemma beamed as the crowd went wild.
Arg, 31, was at the side of the stage supporting his girlfriend, as well as Gemma’s massive entourage and bodyguard.
Ahead of her debut, a source close to the star told The Sun Online how thrilled she was to be performing at the annual charity bash.
They said: “Gemma is so excited for her first big performance tonight.
“She can’t wait to show off her vocals and prove she’s got what it takes to be a pop star.”
Gemma has made no secret of her desire to have a successful music career and is about to jet off to America and record her debut single and album with famed music producer Naughty Boy.

The star first shocked her fans with her incredible singing voice during a festive edition of BBC One show All Together Now.
Gemma was introduced to Naughty Boy – who has worked with Beyonce – at the Brit Awards.
They immediately hit it off and The Sun Online previously revealed Gemma will fly out to the States to film a six-part series about her bid for pop stardom.
Naughty Boy will feature in the show as will her Dancing on Ice professional partner Matt Evers.
The producer who launched the careers of Sam Smith and Emeli Sande, said: “She was born to sing, it’s just that she’s actually taken a different route with it.
“But I think Gemma is going to have one of the biggest songs of the year, I can say that with my hand on my heart.”
He added of their first meeting at the Brits: “I saw her and we had this instant synergy.
“That room at the Brits is full of superstars, but for me, Gemma was shining brighter.”
