Bexley residents show off their skills for Sport Relief in front of 150-strong crowd
More than £300 was raised for Sport Relief on Saturday as residents showcased their entertainment skills at Thamesmead’s Got Talent.
A 150-strong crowd was treated to a captivating display of music, singing, rapping, dance, gymnastics and poetry.
Some 22 budding singers performed at the Thamesmead Youth Voice event, which was held at The Link Thamesmead.
Solo artist OMO said: “I wasn’t too sure I should actually perform as I wasn’t confident in my own ability – it is only my second time singing. Now I have done it I feel totally overwhelmed. I want to go on and perform more as I enjoyed it so much.”
Connor Sturt, from indie band Crowded Oceans, added: “This is the first time we have ever played live. It was a great experience and the fact we were helping to raise money for charity is a bonus. None of us liked the idea of running 27 marathons so we thought we would perform instead.”
