9 year old Dylan Baldwin flew the flag for Lady Katherine School at the Berkswell Royal British Legion on Friday 8th August as he won his place in the Finals of Balsall’s Got the Voice, the music talent section of this year’s Balsall Common Festival.
Dylan won the judges over with his rendition of OneRepublic’s well-known single Counting Stars, which saw him bravely take on significantly older and more experienced competition. Dylan now carries the hopes of Lady K into the finals at The Lant on Saturday 20th September 2014 and we all wish him well.
The finalists will go head to head in the finals in front of a panel of judges, where the ultimate winner will receive a 12 month recording and management contract.
There’s still time for more talent to join Dylan in the finals, as another qualifying round looms tonight (Friday 12th September), at the Berkswell Legion on Station Road opposite Berkswell railway station from 8:15pm.
Anyone interested in entering the competition – which is open to competitors of all ages – should contact Balsall’s Got the Voice Co-ordinator Yaz Zahran on 07983 544636. In the final few hours leading up the competition organisers say turn up and play entrants will be accepted into tonight’s competition (Friday 12th September 2014).
