Trio set for talent show

THREE of our best young singers have made the final of a North West talent show where the winner gets £1,000 for their chosen charity.

Carnforth High pupil Amy-Jo Clough and Lancaster Boys’ Grammar students Andrew Gallacher and David Miller will be among 12 performers in the Furness Charity Challenge at the Grand Theatre in Lancaster.

Taking place tonight (January 26) the contest also includes a Three Tenors-style operatic singing group, a schoolgirl saxophonist, a young pianist, a pop punk band from Liverpool, an all-girl dance group, a hospital theatre manager who also plays a mean guitar, and singers ranging in style from Michael Bublè to Whitney Houston.

The audience vote will act as the fourth judge in the competition, so charity supporters can help their entrant to win by attending the show, and also have a great night out.

Amy-Jo will be singing for the Ryan Stanford Appeal, Andrew for the Teenage Cancer Trust and David for MacMillan Cancer Care
