I’m very excited to be judging this year’s OpenMic UK singing competition for the 7th year running & also the Future Music Songwriting Competition. Since it’s conception, OpenMic has been instrumental in helping to launch some incredible UK talent including previous winners Birdy, Luke Friend & our very own Sam Lavery to name but a few […]
After putting together a showcase of 19 young singers for the producers of the Voice Kids UK last year we couldn’t be any prouder of our very own Courtney Hadwin on reaching the Live Grand Final on ITV. Reaching the final 6 in such a phenomenal competition at only 12 years old is just outstanding! She & her celebrity coach Danny Jones of “McFly” hit it off from the get go, Will-i-am was kicking himself all the way through that he hadn’t turned for her & Pixie Lott’s reaction to her grand final performance was that of genuine shock & awe.
Courtney has been coming for lessons at Vocal Ovation for 2 years now, making the journey from Hartlepool every 2 weeks. She is certainly one of the most hardworking & determined singers we have & practices every single day so deserves every bit of the success she’s achieved & it really is just the start for her!
Here’s her amazing blind audition & the start of her exciting Voice Kids Uk journey! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=on4OBUv5ATU
