Tal­ent show break for young singer

Stockport Express - - News -

A TA­LENTED teenager was thrilled to be one of eight young singers and their mums to star in a CBBC tal­ent show.

Eli­jah Free­man, of Heaton Chapel, will be re­ly­ing on viewer votes later this month to progress to the se­ries fi­nal of Got What It Takes?

The kids take part in a singing tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion and stay at a mu­sic man­sion with their mums.

Eli­jah, 13, watched the first episode with his form and form teacher at Pri­est­nall School. He has played guitar since he was at Broad­stone Hall Pri­mary and be­gan play­ing and singing in Year 4.

He said: “I’ve made life­time friends with the other kids and it helped me to im­prove my per­form­ing skills. I got to know how it feels to be filmed and to be in front of a camera. I would love to get through to the fi­nals. Per­form­ing is my dream and pas­sion.”

His mum Ntiri­wah said: “I was pleas­antly sur­prised to be with such a lovely bunch of mums and it was amaz­ing that we all got on so well.”

There are 10 episodes un­til the end of Novem­ber and peo­ple can vote for Eli­jah on Mon­day, Novem­ber 19 after the ninth episode is aired, with a 24-hour pe­riod to vote on­line.
