The Burdekin’s Fast Track Talent Showcase is being held at the Burdekin Theatre on April 1 and 2 and is set to be a huge weekend of entertainment! Australia’s 2017 Eurovision Contestant and reality-television singing sensation Isaiah Firebrace has been secured as the special guest for the 2017 Burdekin Fast Track Talent Showcase.
Burdekin Shire Council Youth Mayor Tayla McKaig said she is super excited for the Fast Track weekend.
“I encourage everyone to get their tickets to the heats and finals to watch the amazing acts that have entered and to also watch Isaiah Firebrace.
Since winning X Factor, Isaiah Firebrace is currently receiving worldwide attention with his latest smash hit ‘It’s Gotta Be You’. The song is receiving over 900,000 streams a day and has seen Isaiah charting in the US and throughout Europe with over 30 million streams to date. Isaiah was recently announced as Australia’s Entrant for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest which will see him headed to Ukraine to perform his newest song ‘Don’t Come Easy’ in May this year. Isaiah will also be touring with Jessica Mauboy in her upcoming All The Hits Live Tour.
“It is very exciting that the people of the Burdekin will get to see Isaiah in concert before he heads to Ukraine to compete in Eurovision 2017 as the Australia entrant. He started his career as an entrant in a Fast Track competition and it is very exciting to see who will win next weekend. It is not just about winning though, as every entrant has their own talent and is already a winner for entering.
Another special guest will be arriving in the Burdekin as part of the Fast Track talent showcase. X Factor favourite, Chynna Taylor has been secured as the guest judge for the heats to be held on Saturday April 1. Chynna finished in the Top 6 X Factor and was a crowd favourite with her huge voice and the audience may also see her perform in the Burdekin.
This is the third year Burdekin Shire Youth Council has hosted the Fast Track talent competition which provides an amazing opportunity for entertainers of all ages and varied talents to perform for industry professionals as well as family and friends. Burdekin Fast Track ticket-holders will have the opportunity to meet Chynna Taylor and X Factor winner Isaiah Firebrace who will perform live following the Fast Track Finals Showcase.
“I encourage Burdekin residents to support this event so that we can make it bigger and better than last year,” Tayla said.
Registrations have been flooding in and there are very few spots left for registration. This year’s Burdekin showcase is set to be the biggest yet. Participants have the chance to share in over $2500 worth of cash and prizes. The Fast Track heats will be held on Saturday April 1 from midday, where the top performers will be selected to perform as part of the Finals Showcase, alongside Isaiah Firebrace on Sunday April 2 from 6.30pm. Anyone interested in being a part of the showcase should contact 1300FAST01.
