A TALENTED teenager from Saltney Ferry is proving popular after winning a local radio station’s singing competition.
Scott Davies, 18, of Kynaston Drive, a pupil of St David’s High School, beat numerous contenders to win the Dee’s Got Talent grand final, held at the Ramada Hotel.
As a result of the Dee 106.3 contest, Scott won £300 and the chance to produce a professionally-made record at the Ako Recording Studios, Hoylake, as well as making a music video.
Scott spoke of his delight and how he has been kept busy since the talent contest win.
He said: “The talent on the night was fierce and of an incredible standard. After singing my first song, I knew the competition was going to be tough.
“However my second song was one of my personal favourites, a Michael Buble number, Cry Me a River, I knew after a standing ovation I was in for a good chance. After the judges announced my name as the winner I was ecstatic and thrilled.
“Since winning the competition, I have made several radio appearances, and the phone hasn’t stopped ringing with people wanting me to sing for them at weddings, parties and shows all around the area.”
Scott’s mum and manager Alison spoke of her delight at her son’s rise to fame.
She said: “He’s just 18 and he is doing really well. I’m so proud of him.
“He’s just got into Liverpool University to study music, and will be going to Hoylake to cut his own CD and make his own video.
“He is also in the school’s School Idol competition, which could give him the chance to perform live at this year’s Children in Need show.”
