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 so it really is the perfect platform for any aspiring singer to be seen by the right people!
Scouts from XFactor, The Voice, The Voice Kids & Britains Got Talent regularly trawl through video footage from OpenMic & other similar singing competitions to fast track many standout singers to the latter stages of the often gruelling audition process. This was exactly the story last year for Vocal Ovation students Sam Lavery & Sophie Leigh Ash who made it through to the grand final of OpenMic on more than one occasion & then both made it to the final 25 girls in last season’s XFactor! Sam of course being in the final 2 girls with the one & only Simon Cowell!
Entering OpenMic UK couldn’t be easier, simply visit:
Auditions are being held in Newcastle on Sunday 16th September at the Mill Volvo Tyne a Theatre on Westgate Road. Simply prepare around 1-2 mins of a song (acapella) that really shows off your voice, range & uniqueness.
In addition, if you have an original song you can also enter the Future Music Songwriting Competition. Auditions will follow straight after OpenMic so check out more details here!
