Record a Single with Faryl from Britain’s Got Talent

UPDATE: As a couple of my readers have pointed out, this contest is for the UK and Ireland only. I’m really surprised that they would limit it this much. I’m sure they have their reasons, but technology has made the world much smaller and I’m surprised they haven’t embraced it.

Faryl Smith has announced a really cool competition on her website. Looks like Faryl Smith signing with Universal has been good for her and her soon to be released album.

Here’s the details of the competition from the Faryl Smith website:

Follow in Faryl’s footsteps and be in with the chance of recording a single at Abbey Road Studios and having it officially released! This is an incredible opportunity to get your voice heard by top record company executives, to have a song recorded in a professional studio and then have it released as a digital single! Simply watch the video lessons Faryl has recorded, choose your favourite song from Ave Maria, Amazing Grace or River of Light, have a little practice then give it a go and record a version yourself.

Once you’ve recorded your attempt, read the instructions below and upload the video. The best efforts will be displayed on this site and we’ll whittle it down to the three best entries. The three finalists will win a trip to London, a tour of Universal Music, a CD goody bag and they’ll get to audition to 3 top music executives.

The eventual winner will get to record a single at Abbey Road Studios with Faryl on hand to give advice. The single will then be released digitally with unique artwork, plus you’ll also receive a pair of tickets to the Classical Brits with backstage access!

Best of luck!
