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.
