More Whit­sun­day X Fac­tor hope­fuls

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

HE MAY be best known as the pres­i­dent of the Whit­sun­day Go Kart Club or the owner of Adam’s Earth­works, but Adam Stroud is also hop­ing he can make a name for him­self on the tele­vi­sion tal­ent show X Fac­tor.

Adam was one of three Whit­sun­day res­i­dents now known to have made it through to the show’s sec­ond round of au­di­tions held in Mackay last week.

Also on the short­list are Whit­sun­day singing teacher Cor­rine Hen­drikse-Vinci ( Whit­sun­day Times, Novem­ber 28) and 14-year-old Tayla Steven­son (cur­rent edi- tion, page 21). Adam, a rhythm gui­tarist with the duo ‘Fi­nal Trim’, was per­suaded to au­di­tion by a num­ber of his friends.

De­scrib­ing him­self as “more ner­vous than I thought I would be”, Adam sang Lonely Boy by Black Keys and Put a Can­dle in the Win­dow by Cre­dence Clear­wa­ter Re­vival, in front of the show’s producers, who gave him the green light.

Adam, Cor­rine and Tayla will now have to wait un­til March to dis­cover whether they have made it through to the show’s tele­vised au­di­tions in Syd­ney next year.

AIM FOR FAME: Whit­sun­day res­i­dent Adam Stroud has made it through to the sec­ond round of au­di­tions for X-Fac­tor.
