Shane is TeenStar Finalist!

The Grand Final was held on Thursday, 26 November and Shane had some amazing feedback from the Judges.  The public then had their chance to have their say and vote.  The Judges chose their top acts and the one with the most votes from the national votes was crowned the winner.  Unfortunately, this wasn't Shane's moment this time, however we wish him all the very best for all future opportunities.  He was however placed 4th in the 13 years and over category and selected as a Showcase Winner, entitling him to a special showcase meeting with music industry professionals to discuss further developments for his music career.

Shane’s performance can be viewed on YouTube (at about 1hr 35 minutes in)

Earlier this year Shane took part in a ‘24 hour Charity Singing Marathon’ to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease, Plymouth.  He started off the marathon with 45 minutes of singing and they raised over £1000 to be able to buy a stair lift and funding towards speech therapy.
