Elliot Barrow who attends Gillotts school in Henley will be singing in the final of the TeenStar 2013 National Grand Final at indigO2 this Sunday (7th July).  He has beaten thousands during the various heats at Sub 89 in Reading over the last few months.

 

On Sunday, he’ll be singing his own version of You and Me, mashed with an original song he’s written. There will be top judges there, including Radio one DJs. Elliot who is just 13 has been singing for many years around the Henley area and last weekend he sang at the Waddesden Manor festival in front of a thousand people.

 

Elliot’s singing is described as current, with a bluesey, jazzy feel. He’s really developing a style of his own. Comments from the judges about Elliot’s three performances so far have been “favourite of the day”, “very confident and charismatic performance” and ‘ good power in the notes and great stage performance.”
