Sibford School pupil Will Homewood is through the regional finals of Open Mic, the national music competition for singers in the UK.
The 13-year-old singer songwriter will appear on stage at the NEC in Birmingham on October 5, and is keeping his fingers crossed that his performance will see him through to the semi finals.
The competition attracts over 9,000 acts every year as it travels across the country in search for the UK’s best singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists.
Will, who lives in Horley, said: “I’m really looking forward to the regional finals and performing in front of a crowd at the NEC. Sibford School has been great in helping me with my music, as has Unison Rock Academy. But I’d also like to say a big thank you to my mum … I really couldn’t do this without her.”
