TeenStar competition supports Nordoff Robbins
The singing competition TeenStar is a brand-new first-of-its-kind national singing competition specifically for teenage singers, duos, vocal groups, rappers and solo artists in the UK. The singing competition is already expected to attract over 8,000 acts as it travels across the country in the search for the UK's best adolescent singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists. Acts can perform either covers or original material and it's open to all genres, be it pop, RnB, grime, acoustic or classical.
TeenStar is being launched by Future Music who already produce the successful Open Mic UK competition which uncovered acts such as Birdy and Hatty Keane. They are supporting Nordoff Robbins through donations for votes and ticket sales.
Events director for TeenStar Chris Grayston is excited about the partnership: "We are delighted to have Nordof Robbins working with TeenStar, and 100% support the work they do through the power of music. It is our pleasure to help raise money for this wonderful charity, and we look forward to working with them to gain awareness!"
TeenStar offers entrants not only the chance to win prizes, but the opportunity to perform live to capacity audiences at some of the best venues in the country – including within The O2 in London! Huge crowds, record industry A & R and celebrity judges will be there to cast their eye over the talent along the way.
Jo Carter, Director of Fundraising and Communications for Nordoff Robbins says: "We are very excited that the TeenStar Competition is supporting Nordoff Robbins. It’s great that TeenStar will be giving young people up and down the country the opportunity to show off their musical talent. At Nordoff Robbins we believe that music has an incredible power to transform lives. Through music therapy Nordoff Robbins helps vulnerable children and adults who find it difficult to communicate and engage with everyday life. Music can reach people in a way that nothing else can and I wish everyone who takes part in the competition the best of luck!"
