The finalists have been chosen for the X-Factor-style contest to find the city’s next Professional Idol.
The inaugural Professional Liverpool Idol contest will see ten singers from local organisations go head-to-head in front of a panel of judges and a screaming audience.
The event will be held on Thursday, July 9, at PanAm Restaurant and Bar, at the Albert Dock, and aims to raise over £15,000 for the leading learning disability charity, Mencap.
All contestants will receive professional vocal coaching from Jennifer John, of Sense of Sound, before the event and on the night will be accompanied by a live band.
The audience will choose the winner. The contestants include Mike Petyt of Medicash. The event is being run in partnership with sector support body Professional Liverpool.
Sue Weir of Medicash says, “We are delighted to be supporting this fundraising event and, alongside our own member of staff taking part, we are looking forward to seeing how the rest of the contestants get on.”
