THE win­ner from pop­u­lar singing com­pe­ti­tion show

The Voice was cen­tre stage at the RSL Armistice Mu­sic Fes­ti­val at the week­end.

Ju­dah Kelly is an Aus­tralian singer­song­writer best known for win­ning the sixth series of

The Voice Aus­tralia in 2017. The fes­tiv­i­ties took place at the Charleville race­course in front of an au­di­ence of about 300 peo­ple.

Charleville RSL pres­i­dent and sub-branch deputy pres­i­dent Greg Field said the feed­back from the con­cert was ex­cel­lent.

“On the night we had Ju­dah Kelly as our main act, with three other bands from down the road, called Spe­cial Guest, Scream­ing Chokoes and Jim Boss.

“Ju­dah was a great en­ter­tainer and is very topi­cal at the mo­ment be­cause The Voice is back on TV now,” he said.

The con­cert was or­gan­ised to com­mem­o­rate 100 years since the First World War ended.

“2018 is the cen­te­nary since the First World War ended, which was in 1918, and for the last four years there have been a series of cen­te­nar­ies in re­la­tion to the war.

“Now 100 years on there are a lot of things be­ing done to com­mem­o­rate the end of the war and Novem­ber 11 will be a re­ally big day for a lot of peo­ple be­cause it was the sign­ing of the armistice,” he said.

The Charleville RSL Sub-branch de­cided to host a com­mu­nity event to com­mem­o­rate the mile­stone af­ter re­ceiv­ing fund­ing for the cen­te­nary.

“We wanted to have a big com­mu­nity event free of charge and we know we are a bit far away from Novem­ber, but An­zac Day is a big thing for Charleville so we de­cided to take ad­van­tage of that be­cause there will be a few peo­ple around,” Mr Field said.

The Li­ons Club and the Charleville State School P and C catered and the Charleville Golf Club ran the bar.
