Meet The Semi-Finalists!

Meet The Semi-Finalists!
Welcome to the semi-final of another exciting VoiceCouncil Singing Competition!

This time we’ve done things a little differently, with almost twice as many entrants through to the next round of the competition than ever before.

Over the past six months, aspiring singers have submitted their YouTube videos to our Singing Competition Winter 2016. Our in-house vocal coaches have hand-picked half of the semi-finalists, and the VoiceCouncil team have hand-picked the other half who deserve a chance at the big prize.

We have twelve semi-finalists who are fighting for a $1000USD music gear prize. Meet them below.

Final round

To proceed to the next round and become a finalist, our semi-finalists will be submitting a new YouTube video for us. We’ve asked for a unique interpretation of a cover song, challenging them to sing their chosen song in a different key, tempo or genre to the original.

We’ll be announcing our finalists in a special article next week.

The overall winner will be chosen as a result of the final video they send us – but we will also be taking your comments into account, so check out this talented showcase of singers and let us know who you are rooting for in the comments!


Are you a singer yourself? Disappointed that you missed the deadline? Never fear – our next competition is already underway and we’re still accepting entries. Enter our next competition!
