THREE singers have been chosen as the first finalists in the Weston's Got Talent competition.
The first round of auditions was held last Saturday at the Uphill Victory Hall, in Old Church Road, where contestants dazzled judges with a variety of songs and stand-up comedy routines.
The talent contest was launched a couple of months ago by members of Weston Town Council and performers across Weston, as well as those visiting the town, have been invited to take part.
Six-year-old Weston singer Kelly Anne Magbanua won the judges’ vote with her performance of Alexandra Burke’s version of Halleluiah.
The Corpus Christi Primary School pupil is no stranger to the spotlight and has performed to hundreds at a Filipino festival in Bristol.
Father Victor said: “She is looking forward to the next round and she has so much confidence.
“Singing is not just a hobby for her; she wants to turn it into a profession.”
North Worle resident Dave Elswood was also picked as one of the finalists with his performance of Cliff Richard’s Gee Whiz It’s You.
The 57-year-old engineer from Summer Lane will go on to the final along with singer Jade Turner. Jade, from Bracknell, took part in the competition while visiting her grandmother who lives in Worle.
The next audition session will take place at the Worle Community Centre in Lawrence Road on September 28 from 4-7pm.
