We are very proud of our former student Idele Lucille and her recent win on BBC 1’s Pitch Battle with Leeds Contemporary Singers. The group beat off some stiff competition to win the £50 000 prize. The group was crowned the winner after a public vote.
Idele has won before with Y&T’s own The Real Deal in CBBC’s Sport’s Relief Does Glee Club 2012. We loved having Idele as part of the Y&T family. On her time at Y&T Idele says, “My time at Y&T was amazing. Although I only liked singing at first, I’ve learnt through the years that singing, acting and dancing all work together. I am grateful to have received training in all three from Y&T.”
Idele has just finished her BA in Popular Music and is pursuing her career as a solo artist and as part of Leeds Contemporary Singers. Make sure to watch this space.
Congratulations Idele! We wish you all the success in the world.
