Sonsgtress Tina Reid has been unveiled as the winner of Doncaster’s ‘Mecca’s Got Talent’ search at a special club finals event.

In front of a panel of independent judges, Tina gave a brilliant performance of Love Is All by Malcolm Roberts to clinch the club winner’s title.

Paul Goy, General Manager of Mecca Bingo Doncaster said, “We had an absolutely fantastic night on Friday and all of our finalists did really well. There were a few nerves earlier in the day but thankfully that didn’t stop anyone from performing on the night.

“It’s fair to say that Tina really stood out and the judges voted him/her the winner because the judges were blown away by Tina’s singing ability and stage presence; she totally captivated the audience even though she wasn’t seining a very well known song.”

Tina will receive a pair of tickets to the Britain’s Got Talent Live Tour 2011 and has been invited to compete in the semi finals event on May 27. If they are lucky enough to make it through the regional finals, they will then compete against other winners from Mecca clubs across the UK in the national finals event.

The finals event will take place on July 16 at Mecca Bingo in the Midlands, with TV’s Lorraine Kelly as host. Lorraine Kelly says, “The response to the ‘Mecca’s Got Talent’ search has been great with some fantastic acts. I wish Tina lots of luck in the next stage of the competition and I hope to see her at the national finals event!”

The winner will receive a £5,000 cash prize and a year-long contract with leading entertainment agency, Stagepalm.
