On Friday 7th February 2014, around 450 people, including both the Chairman and the Chief Executive of Northamptonshire County Council, witnessed an unforgettable evening of inspiring music from over 70 young people at Spinney Theatre in Northampton. The judging panel – featuring singer and music leader Roselyne Kabonesha on a live link from Uganda – chose “Don’t Be A Bully” by “Cherries” (above) from Rowan Gate Primary School as junior winners and “Little Pieces” by Jodie & Emay from Latimer Arts College as winners of the senior final.
Host for the evening was Rachel Scott, Young Leader for Northamptonshire and The House Band was led by the brilliant Greg Coulson. The evening included guest performances by rap singer Kaydan and singer/songwriter Jack McCarlie.
As well as receiving trophies, the winners will record their songs at The Studio @ The Stables in Wavendon for distribution in schools and youth clubs across Northamptonshire.
