Year 8 Band crowned the winner of Richmond’s Got Talent
We are thrilled to announce that after over 500 votes, the Year 8 Band has been crowned the winner of Richmond’s Got Talent 2021! With over 16% of the votes, there was no question that Edwin, Harrison, Henry and Sam were the public’s favourite. Their performance of the Beatles’ classic ‘Let it Be’ was tremendous and really showed of their musical ability. They have great potential as a group and we are very excited at what they will do next. They were closely followed by sixth form student Holly, who, as runner-up, polled 15% of the votes with her excellent rendition of ‘She Used to be Mine’.
Stephen Boyd, Lead Teacher of Music, said: “I am so proud of all our students and their resilience in keeping music making alive when there have been so many restrictions placed on performing. The boys have produced an excellent version, arranged, rehearsed and recorded without staff support. Congratulations to them all and I am very much looking forward to watching their development! ”
Thank you to all the finalists who worked incredibly hard in difficult circumstances to create their own performance and videos for the public to enjoy. We are also most appreciative to all the students who entered the competition—you were superb and we are really looking forward to hearing more from all of them soon.
