Lancaster singing star Paul Akister was introduced as ‘the man with the liquid gold voice’ as he came on stage to sing to tens of thousands at the Manchester Arena at the weekend.
Paul appeared as part of The X Factor UK tour and belted out ‘Clown’ by Emeli Sande and ‘Ghost’ by Ella Henderson to the delighted crowds on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.
Many of Paul’s fans from the Lancaster district were there to support him.
Debbie Butler, senior content editor for The Visitor who was at Saturday’s concert, said: “Paul got a rapturous reception and he seemed really touched by it.
“It was good to see him play such a large venue, and his voice sounded great.”
