The John Kyrle High School X Factor Finals

We have said this before, but we will say it again. There is a lot of musical talent amongst the pupils of John Kyrle High School, which became even more apparent at their X Factor Finals Night on Saturday. Ozzy Osbourne, aka Dave Chatwin along with 'Sharon' (Mrs. Markye) compered the event in hilarious fashion, mingling with the audience and getting up on the stage to dance to The Banned.

Many of the finalists performed their own, original material and the standard of all of the performances was fantastic. The event was put on to raise money for the annual trip to Kisiki College in Uganda, whom the school sponsors. The winners of the X Factor Final, Becky and Sean, won a prize of £100, which was donated by Ross Lions Club. The event is covered extensively in this week's X Factor Special WNTV News programme.

Grounded at the Phoenix Theatre on Friday

At Y-Zone on 1st March 2007, a group of young people from Ross-on-Wye and across the county launched their hip hop CD 'Grounded.' Wyenot News was pleased to cover the story as we knew some of the young people involved and we included one of the tracks in the 28th March 2007 edition.( If you would like to hear the track, the link is on page four.) The track is called 'Soldier' and the lyrics were written by Dale Davidson of Controversial Minds.

This coming Friday the artistes featured on the CD will be appearing at the Phoenix Theatre in Ross-on-Wye and will be well worth going to. The doors open at 7pm and an alcohol free bar will be operating. There are limited seats available, so you are advised to get your ticket, costing £3 from the Music Box in Brookend Street as soon as you can.

The performers are: The Mirror Kissers, controversial Minds, The Forgotten, Sunshine Soul Singers, Lady Lyric, Notty White, MC DJ, Megan Slattery, Ellie Connors and Controversial Minds Sound System with beat boxing by 2FX, hosted by Soul Syndicate Sound System.

The event is organized and sponsored by The Music Pool, Herefordshire Council Community Youth Service, The Phoenix Theatre, New Roots Youth Music Action Zones and The music Box.

There is a lot of talent in this town. Why not go along and find out for yourself?.
