A young musician is hoping to prove he has what it takes – with the support of local people.
Brook Miller, from Whitley Bay, is one of eight hopefuls battling it out on CBBC’s talent show Got What It Takes?
The 14-year-old is part of the final show being broadcast at 4.55pm on Tuesday, April 4, but is need of public support to make the final three.
Brook, the only North East representative, recorded a song in a London studio used by the likes of Adele and Amy Winehouse.
People can register to vote at wwww.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/shows/got-what-it-takes and can vote for free up to three times over a 24-hour period.
The winner of the overall final will be chosen by an industry panel and will sing on the main stage at Radio 1 Big Weekend.
Brook, a pupil at Whitley Bay High School said: “It’s been a chance of a life time, the best summer I’ve ever had.
“I got to meet people like Nick Grimshaw, The Vamps and Calum Scott who all gave really good advice and tips.”
Brook’s mother Sharon said: “It would be great for people of the North East to vote for Brook to get him into the final and help him onto the first step in his career as music is what he wants to do.”
