Determined singers are setting out to record their debut single, after being knocked out of a new BBC competition.
Despite getting through the first stages of The Voice UK in November, there was some talent that never got a chance to shine in front of celebrity judges, Jessie J, Tom Jones, Danny Danny O’Donoghue and Will.i.am.
But rather than giving up hope, a group of approximately 30 people, including hopefuls from Chorley, have now decided to collaborate, to gain experience, raise money for charity, and prove that they really do have ‘the voice’.
‘Full Circle’, is the brainwave of vocal coach and The Voice UK auditionee Paul Stuart Davies, who posted an invitation on Facebook for others who had also left the competition.
They have chosen to record ‘I Believe’, a song that features in the 2003 film ‘Honey’, at Manchester’s Blueprint studios on April 11.
Two of them, Louise Crook and Amy Lovae, are from Chorley.
Country singer Louise, 28, who is a health care assistant at Chorley Hospital, said: “I saw about the idea on Facebook, and I asked to join the group.
“I am doing it for the experience, and obviously it will be good to raise money for charity.
“I think we will do the song well between us, and will complement each other.”
Although the group have already created a demo version of the song online, some of the members are still yet to meet one another.
Paul said: “We’re all so excited to record in such a prestigious studio.
“This experience can only benefit all involved.
“We are trying to make it as big as we possibly can.”
Money raised from the single will be donated to the charity Me and Dee, based in Derby.
Full Circle treasurer, Kristianne Robinson, said: “The decision to support Me and Dee was not difficult in terms of the incredible work that Maria and her team do, but we did consider a number of charities and were very careful to choose one that offered not only a nationwide service but also a service to both adults & children.”
