Henry Maybury (Meynell 2005 - 2010)
Old Ellesmerian, Henry Maybury, wowed the crowd and judging panel recently in the Open Mic UK Regional Showcase at the Birmingham NEC. He is now one step away from performing at The O2 in London!
Thousands of acts entered Open Mic UK 2012 and the best unsigned singers from across the country were chosen to perform at the live Regional Final shows. Henry performed in front of a live audience and professional judging panel on October 6th at the N.E.C. in Birmingham. He is now set to perform at the Area Final for the chance to progress to the National Grand Final at The O2 in London on 19th January 2013.
Those who made it through the audition stage took part in a live Regional head-to-head battle alongside the best talent in their area. Acts performed in front of hundreds of audience members and industry judges for the chance to grab a breakthrough recording contract.
After leaving Ellesmere College in 2010, Henry attended Hull University for a short period of time until deciding that the course he was studying was unsuitable for him. He applied to study Music with Musical Theatre at Chichester where he has been concentrating on singing, song writing and preparing for his big break! Whilst at Chichester, Henry has taken a keen interest in acting. In 2011, he was chosen to perform in the Chichester Minerva Theatre, with a company set up by the Chichester Festival Theatre, he is also being trained by professional actress, Rae baker.
Over the last 6 months, Henry's music has really started to take off, with his You Tube videos receiving over a quarter of million views, and obviously with the success of the Open Mic competition.
