TALENTED young musician Marcus Sims has his sights set on Hollywood.

The 11-year-old, from Darlington, wants to move to the US when he is older, to further his music career.

Marcus, who lives in Abbey Road, has taken his first steps to stardom after winning two trophies at the Darlington Music Festival.

He took first prize in the under-11 piano section and came first in the under-11 double bass section.

Marcus, who says he was surprised to win, is a pupil at Carmel Technology College.

He said: "I would like to make a career out of my music and my ambition is to move to live and work in Los Angeles."
