Teenage TV talent set to inspire choirs at Last Choir Singing Final
BRITAIN’S Got Talent semi-finalist Henry Gallagher will be performing live at the Final of the Last Choir Singing Competition in Blackburn in June.
The 13-year-old singer-songwriter from Wigan wowed the judges on the hit ITV show, and now he is ready to wow an audience at King George’s Hall, in Blackburn, on Friday June 17.
Henry shot to fame last April on national TV, as he performed his song ‘Lightning’ at his audition, which lifted the roof off a packed Lowry Theatre in Manchester and again at the televised live shows in London.
He has written a number of original songs, including Lightning, Butterflies, Best Thing Ever, Explode and Time of my Life, and is now playing to audiences up and down the country with his exciting stage performances at numerous live events.
Henry will be discussing his Last Choir Singing performance with BBC Radio Lancashire’s John Gillmore on Thursday 2 June from TIME.
He is excited to be performing at the Last Choir Singing Final and to be inspiring the youngsters in their performances, he said: “I’m thrilled to be singing at the Last Choir Singing Final, it is even more special to me as I know how much singing will mean to the children taking part.”
