Ma’anit Rosen­thal could soon score a record­ing con­tract

The Jewish Chronicle - - People -

SINGER SONG­WRITER Ma’anit Rosen­thal is a step closer to land­ing her­self a record­ing con­tract af­ter mak­ing it through to the re­gional fi­nals of a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

Open Mic UK 2009 is a tal­ent search for Bri­tain’s best singers, singer/song­writ­ers, rap­pers and vo­cal­ists of all gen­res — those who have the po­ten­tial to be­come a pro­fes­sional record­ing artist.

Miss Rosen­thal, 24, de­scribes her style as acous­tic folk and pop. She will per­form in front of the judges — who in­clude broad­caster Mark Good­ier; Dane Bow­ers, for­merly of boy band An­other Level; and Atomic Kit­ten’s Liz McClarnon — on Sun­day Oc­to­ber 11, and com­pete for the chance to win a cash prize and a record­ing con­tract to release her sin­gle.

She tells Peo­ple: “It would be amaz­ing to win — ex­actly what I would want. At the mo­ment I am re­hears­ing and also do­ing lo­cal gigs to get known on the cir­cuit.”

Liv­ing in Kent, she has been singing and play­ing the gui­tar for the past four years. “I guess the dream is to do this as a liv­ing and be able to ex­press my­self to every­one through mu­sic.”

Among her in­spi­ra­tions are coun­try mu­sic group the Dixie Chicks and Amer­i­can singer­song­writer Fiona Ap­ple. The Open Mic re­gional fi­nals take place at the Beck The­atre in Hayes, Mid­dle­sex.
