Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Henry Gallagher will be performing live at the final of the Last Choir Singing competition in Blackburn in June, as children from Fylde and Wyre compete for the title.

The 13-year-old singer-songwriter from Wigan wowed the judges on the hit ITV show, and now he is ready to wow an audience at King George’s Hall, in Blackburn, on Friday June 17.

Henry shot to fame last April on national TV, as he performed his song ‘Lightning’ at his audition, which lifted the roof off a packed Lowry Theatre in Manchester and again at the televised live shows in London.

He is now playing to audiences up and down the country.

He said: “It is even more special to me as I know how much singing will mean to the children taking part.”

Local schools in the final include Shakespeare Primary School, Fleetwood, Kirkham Grammar Junior School, Great Eccleston Copp CE Primary School, Norbreck Primary Academy, St Nicholas Church of England Primary School, Blackpool and Anchorsholme Primary Academy
