TV winner brings his voice to RSL event
Judah Kelly steps on stage
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.
