Mencap launch ‘Liverpool Idol’ competition
Local charity Mencap Liverpool, who provide a range of support services for adults with learning disabilities and those on the autistic spectrum in the city, will be holding their ‘Liverpool Idol’ singing contest on Thursday 3rd March starting at 7pm, at PanAm Bar and Restaurant at Liverpool’s Albert Dock.
The ‘Liverpool Idol’ event will unearth Liverpool’s hidden singing talent and at the same time raise vital funds for Mencap Liverpool to continue supporting individuals with learning disabilities and their families in Liverpool. This unique event aims to reveal Liverpool’s budding new music stars. See your fellow colleagues as you have never seen them before, make excellent new connections and have a great night out, all in aid of Mencap Liverpool.
The event will showcase the talent of 6-8 performers from the business community who will practice a song with a vocal coach and a professional band in the run up to the event. They will then perform the song on the evening with the live backing band, in front of an audience of their peers. There will be a judging panel of local celebrities to offer their expert opinions and a great prize on offer. Ultimately the audience will decide on the winning act by paying to vote for their favourite contestant on the night.
Mencap Liverpool Fundraising Manager, Kevin Byrne, commented: “We are delighted to be bringing this exciting event back to the city. We rely on voluntary income to fund our work and this is a fantastic way of engaging the local business community to support Liverpool people with a learning disability and their families. Liverpool Idol offers businesses the unique opportunity to see fellow colleagues as you have never seen them before, make excellent new connections and have a great night out, all in aid of Mencap Liverpool.”
