By popular demand, GELO, the vocalist duo Angelo Bernal and Ryan Major who won last year’s North Norfolk’s Great Talent (#nngt), were back on Cromer Pier in April in a special show as part of Coast Arts @ Easter. The duo were joined by other acts from the contest to perform good old sing-a-long songs. “The matinee show was full of songs we all love to sing along to”, said Annie Lloyd who organised the event. “We were entertained to the music of Dean Martin, Perry Coma, Andy Williams, Doris Day, Eta James, Cliff Richard, Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles, Bobby Darren, and Billie Holiday “.
“So often performers, even winners, of talent shows find it difficult to keep up the momentum and get further exposure,” added Joseph Ballard from Arts North Norfolk who compered the show, “we wanted to build on the success of last year’s competition and give further support to those who were brave enough to come forward. This showwas opportunity for the performers to experience performing in the theatre in a fun way, in an afternoon of singing with the audience”.
