N21's Got Talent has a Winner
AND A WINNER!
Congratulations to Vangelis Polydorou, the winner of N21's Got Talent!
Vangelis, who used to go to Southgate School, began singing at a young age, performing in choirs and gaining experiences with live performances through various events/fundraisers/gigs around London. He is currently studying Popular Music at University and working on original songs, which he hopes to release in 2013.
The judges were very experienced music professsionals, Tony O‟ Malley, formerly of 10cc, now a solo performer of jazz/funk, performing regularly at Ronnie Scott‟s and the 606 Club in Chelsea.
Zee Asha, vocalist and song writer, who has appeared alongside Boy George, as well as Jools Holland, Meatloaf, Dolly Parton and Gabrielle.
Chaz Dabat, former performer and a record producer, who has worked with many pop bands and stars including Herbie Hancock, Rose Royce, Chic, Mica Paris and is currently scoring music for a major screen release starring Al Pacino.
Not only did the judges provide useful feedback to each of the six acts, but Vangelis receives a day's recording time and voice coaching from two of the judges, who were also so impressed with tthe runner up 14 year old Nicola Mousicos that they are also offering her some of their time.
The evening made a profit of over £1700 for the North London Hospice.
