Will­ing, able for Idol

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

REG­IS­TRA­TIONS are now open for Abil­ity Idol, a project giv­ing peo­ple with dis­abil­ity the chance to sing their favourite song on stage.

Abil­ity Idol will give con­tes­tants the chance to per­form in front of a live au­di­ence at Ka­did­jiny Park in Melville.

Sup­ported by a $10,000 grant from the City of Melville Robin Hood Project, Abil­ity Idol is the brain­child of Ben Cox.

For Ben, Abil­ity Idol is a per­sonal mis­sion.

Cur­rently work­ing at Ac­tiv in Wem­b­ley, Ben dreams to be an event or­gan­iser. Abil­ity Idol will give him the chance pur­sue his pas­sion and help oth­ers with a dis­abil­ity achieve their dreams.

“Many peo­ple liv­ing with dis­abil­ity love mu­sic and love per­form­ing but don’t get the chance to show their gifts and tal­ents,” Ben said.

“It gives peo­ple liv­ing with a dis­abil­ity a chance to per­form in front of a live au­di­ence, which is great.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited to bring Abil­ity Idol to life and hope that by tak­ing part, peo­ple with dis­abil­ity will get the chance to achieve their own dreams.”

Reg­is­tra­tions close on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 11.

To en­ter, bud­ding per­form­ers need to sub­mit an on­line video of their per­for­mance, with the top six fi­nal­ists se­lected to per­form in the open-air con­cert at Ka­did­jiny Park on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 27.
