We at Junior Star Singer are still feeling warm and fuzzy with that after-Royal-Wedding glow. Two of our Star Singers, Billy and Louie, were able to celebrate the joyous occasion by singing at a street festival, and here they are to tell us more…

Our very own starlet Rachael Summers reflects on the career of EDM superstar, Avicii, who passed away last week.
Scott Thornhill first entered Junior Star Singer a couple of years ago as a young contestant for West Side Radio in London. Based in Coulsdon, he is a drama enthusiast, keen to sing in musicals, and perform in local plays and theatre, having done so on numerous occasions. Now being mentored through Junior Star Singer Songwriter, Scott has already recorded his first demo. He will be performing some great favourites on the tour later this year with various piano tracks.
Scott is also producing and directing his own play later this year, a first time project with a view to branching out also into this field as a career. He will be co-ordinating auditions later in the summer. We caught up with Scott during one of his mentoring sessions. He tells us:
“I have struggled with things like depression and anxiety in the recent years of my life and those things combined can really drag you down. whenever I am playing music, whether it is singing, playing the keyboard etc I feel like I can just release those negative thoughts through my music to make space for positive ones. This has helped me put more feeling and emotions into my music, making it feel more real and heartfelt. “
Look out for Scott Thornhill on the JSS tour, he is also the new presenter this year for ‘Behind the Mic’ which speaks to contestants behind the scenes.
It’s that time of the year again where we are offering someone the unique and invaluable opportunity to take their lyrical talent to the next level by having their work aired across twenty UK radio stations!
It is an opportunity not to be missed, so if you love to put a songwriting pen to paper then click here to get started!
