TEENAGER Nicolle York has been crowned winner of Costa Blanca’s Got Talent.
The talent competition at the Emerald Isle, La Florida, has been running since January and attracted dozens of entrants from across the Costa Blanca with a range of talents.
The singers and musicians in the semi-finals were given two weeks to perform their own version of
‘For Once In My Life’ by Stevie Wonder and a number of their own choice for the final. Nicolle chose to sing and play the keyboard to ‘Jar of Hearts’ originally by Christina Perri.
Nicolle gave two outstanding, faultless performances and beat large bands who had many followers, and seven others in the final winning €2,500 and a trophy.
The 16-year-old travelled from her home in Javea to compete where she is currently studying for her A-Levels, including music, and intends to continue her music studies at university.
The Emerald Isle’s annual X-Factor competition was re-named and re-launched as The New Costa Blanca’s Got Talent competition this year and was open to both amateur and professional alike offering up to €4,000 in prizes. It was sponsored by The Emerald Isle and Laura Ashley, Zenia Boulevard, in association Sunshine FM.
