A Milton Keynes singer has made it through to the regional finals of the TeenStar singing competition.
Sahana Ramlugan was given the thumbs up by judges at the TeenStar auditions and will now, along with other finalists, be performing live showcases of the competition.
TeenStar is a national singing competition searching for the UK’s best teens and pre-teen singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists of all genres who perform either covers or original material. TeenStar is organised by Future Music, the company behind the discovery of artists such as Jacob Banks, Warner Music’s Birdy, Columbia Record’s Lucy Spraggan, and Union J’s Jaymi Hensley and Jahmene Douglas, both of whom are now signed to Sony Music
Sahana is now in the running to follow in the footsteps of previous winner Luke Friend and compete for a place in the grand final.
Thousands of hopefuls entered TeenStar nationwide and hundreds of auditionees queued patiently on the day for their turn to impress the judges. Those who made it through the audition stage will now take part in a live regional head-to-head battle alongside the best talent in their area. They’ll be performing in front of hundreds of audience members and a professional judging panel to win a place at the national grand final.
Chris Grayston, events co-ordinator for TeenStar, said: “We are looking to find an act that has something unique to offer, another Birdy or Luke Friend that can go all the way, with both the ability to deliver a strong live performance but also potential to become a professional recording artist. There is so much talent out there I’m sure we can find that star again!”
