REDHEAD Bec Laughton set the stage on fire at Easterfest over the weekend with a booty-shaking performance which included aerial acrobatics and sensational dancers.

The vocal powerhouse with lungs that defy her petite frame had fans clamouring towards the main stage as guest performers The Ice Cream Factory and Riddim Kulcha entertained with aerial and dance displays.

The Brisbane singer's performance, which came just before headline acts Peter Furler and Audio Adrenaline, will no doubt boost her international reputation.

Laughton, who has just returned from a US tour,  was nominated in the 2012 International Independent Music awards, adding to her recognition five times for the Q Song awards over the past three years.

She took out the winning song for her track 'Holy Love' and came close with her highly commended 'Sensation', both of which feature on the EP 'At First Sight'.

'Holy Love' also received international marketing interest one of Germany's biggest phone companies.

Laughton has featured on ABC radio, Triple J and landed #5 most played album on 4ZZZ.

She has featured in the Spiegeltent for Brisbane Festival alongside her beloved Kimbra and at the Brisbane Powerhouse for the annual 2High Festival.

She has supported international R&B act Zhane`, James Blundell, The Rooftops and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

According to her website, the young songbird has roots in jazz being trained at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music.

Raised as a theatre orphan she has also dabbled in musical theatre for over a decade.

Laughton landed her first lead role in a major production at  age 16 years.

Playing Dorothy in the motown musical The Wiz she received rave reviews and the nickname "lion lungs".

"A little doll saturated in soul her tasty vocal chords bring back sassy soul, 70s funk and saucy blues,'' is how her website describes her.

"Mouth watering melodies, heart melting lyrics and divine booty shaking beats.''

If her Easterfest show is anything to go by, she will be one to watch out for.
