ARE you a budding Simon Cowell or Amanda Holden? Local amateur musicians and singers have been auditioning to become Lakeside’s Boardwalk Busker 2011 and find fame like Leona Lewis and JLS – and now is your chance to cast your vote. 12 talented acts have been shortlisted and you can help them make it into the final four by voting online.
Local hopefuls are competing for the opportunity to perform live on The Boardwalk at Lakeside, win a full day in a famous recording studio, a personal styling session and £500 Lakeside Gift Card, a gold disc trophy and much more!
Kylie Minor, Acting Marketing Manager at Lakeside, says: “We’ve received some great entries that span every musical genre – from pop to soul, opera and R’n’B. The response was phenomenal and selecting a shortlist of 12 was tough, so we need as much help from our shoppers as possible to find our final four who will perform live for you next month.”
The audition tracks and videos are now live on the Lakeside website so make sure you vote for your favourite before Friday 1st July. Will you vote for young rappers YMF from East Tilbury, or Lloyd Coombes, the self-taught singer from Billericay? Get involved and help launch new local music talent.
