Youngsters could sing with Stevie Wonder act
1:50pm Thursday 20th September 2012 in Freetime
Young performers are being given a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform in the Stevie Wonder Experience and sing with a 10-piece live band.
The line-up and sound will be replicating Wonder’s own live shows, featuring the talented Zion Wilson, who featured on the BBC’s Last Choir Standing, performing all the greatest hits, including Sir Duke, I Wish, Superstition and many more.
The show will be raising money for the Ron and Jean Leigh Memorial Fund, which supports the Crystal Palace FC Foundation by holding fundraising events for its community work programme for disadvantaged children in the Penge area.
Nick Leigh, the show’s musical director and grandson of Ron and Jean Leigh, says: “We know it’s not easy getting into the music industry but there are plenty of opportunities for talented young musicians.”
Youngsters aged between 13 to 25 must submit a video of themselves singing a Stevie Wonder song.
Those who wish to be considered should send a link of their video to the show’s producers at newtalent@stevie wonderexperience.co.uk.
