We think this Liverpool X Factor hopeful is going all the way
Watch our chat with X Factor star in the making, Gary barker above
Many of us in Liverpool are familiar with Gary Barker, we all know someone who he’s sung (and stripped) for over the years. Whether it’s your auntie’s wedding, your nephew’s christening or your neighbour’s funeral, Gary is always about.
Now it’s not just your great auntie Val that he’s performed in front of, last weekend he wowed Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Sherzinger and Louis Walsh on his first X Factor audition with his rendition of Sam Cooke’s ‘A Change Is Going To Come’.
Liverpool auditions took place this year at our stunning Titanic Hotel and so far the Scousers are coming through strong with another local lad, Anthony Russel also impressing not only the judges, but the nation too.
It’s not just his incredible, soulful voice that keeps the crowds happy, Gary also has a bit of a name for himself for getting his kit off whilst on stage too, and not only that two years ago he trended worldwide when he caused a mass dance off outside The Liverpool pub with his version of ‘Uptown Funk’.
We are backing him all the way to the finals, and now through to boot camp we are sure Gary Barker will impress even further, just keep your kicks on Gazza!
He is now equipped with our ‘GARY CAM’ which we will be using to follow his journey to the to of that big famous red X.
