Broch singer Copper McCormick needs support to secure a place in the final of Live and Unsigned having been thrown a ‘wildcard’.
Copper battled against hundreds of auditionees to secure a spot in the live shows of Live and Unsigned, wowing the judging panel of the UK’s biggest original music competition. After sailing through the audition stage, she then stormed the regional finals in March to make it through to the Area Finals of Live and Unsigned held on Sunday April 24 when she competed against the most talented bands and artists in the country.
Unfortunately Copper did not make it through the Area Finals and believed that her dream had come to an end until she was handed a ‘wildcard’. The ‘wildcard’ is in the form of a national public vote, with one place up for grabs in each area and only two weeks to make her mark, Copper needs all the support she can muster.
Speaking to the Herald Copper said: “I was very disappointed with myself on Sunday as I didn’t feel that I performed to the best of my abilities. However, I can still advance to the Final through the Wildcard Vote.
“People can register a vote for me by texting wildcard161 to 84222. Texts are charged at £1.”
For those who have not had the opportunity to hear Copper perform, live footage of her performances are available on the internet. Copper continued: “The MuzuTV side competition is still running, it’s the footage of my performance from the previous round, as filmed by Silvertip Film Production, the more hits I get the more chance there is of winning.
“I have also uploaded some new material (some originals and some cover versions) to YouTube. On both sites I’m registered as Copper McCormick and people can subscribe to my Copper Diva channel on YouTube.”
There is one final opportunity to get behind Copper and help her progress within the competition and play at the O2 in London on Saturday July 23 and that is by ensuring Copper receives the most votes by texting wildcard161 to 84222. Text votes cost £1 plus one message at your standard operator rate. Voting for Copper ends at midday on Wednesday May 11.
