Smooth singer Wayne has star quality

Where: The Bacon Theatre, Dean Close School, Hatherley Road, Cheltenham, GL51 6EP

When: Monday, October 22, 7.30pm

Wayne Ellington has performed in front of royalty at Prince Harry and Megan's wedding and for ITV's The Voice judges and he will now be taking to the Bacon Theatre stage, Cheltenham, on October 22.

Wayne has shared a stage with Blur and even Pope St John Paul II. Whilst attending Brunel University he won the prestigious Sheridan Instrumental Prize for Outstanding Singing and Musicianship, solidifying his passion and encouraging him to pursue it further.

Since then he has worked all over the world as a performer and international vocal coach, and in 2006 he founded Manchester's Inspirational Voices community choir, winners of the Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year title in 2016.

A year later ITV's The Voice came calling. Sir Tom Jones fell in love with Wayne's voice, inviting him to join 'Team Tom' and promising him that they would sing together one day.

Wayne's newest show promises to be an evening packed with class and elegant songs, showing his warm, silky, smooth voice at its absolute best. This is an evening of pure joy not to be missed.

The Bacon Theatre manager Debbie Godber said: "Wayne is an incredible talent. His extensive experience is brought to bear in his amazing show. His voice will leave you tingling and spellbound."
