Bournemouth teenager takes top slot in talent show
A TALENTED Bournemouth teenager has stars in his eyes after winning the prestigious South Coast singing competition, Star Sensations.

The St Peter’s School student took the Grand Final by storm with a catchy song he wrote and performed for the competition called I Tried My Best To Always Be There.
Co-founder of Star Sensations, Chris Daines said: “He just blew everyone away in the grand final. “It was relatively close in the heats, but he put so much work in and wrote a backing track to his own song to accompany the acoustic guitar.

“A very catchy tune and the crowd absolutely loved him.
“He deserved his first place and will go on to have a big future.”
More than 300 contestants entered for the Under 17s category of the singing competition which is now in its fifth year.
The Grand Final was held at the Carrington House Hotel on Saturday July 20 and 16 talented youngsters battled it out for the top prize.
