Kyle Birch is to sing his heart out this weekend having reached the final of a national theatre musical competition.
The 21-year-old, who lives in St John's Road, Wembley, has made it through a tough audition process and hopes to win the West End Calling challenge this Sunday.
His successful first audition in October saw him selected to go through to the heats and then semi-finals.
He has beaten hundreds of hopefuls to perform Who I'd Be from Shrek the Musical in front of an audience made up of industry professionals, agents, casting directors and the public at Andrew Lloyd Webber's newest theatre, The Other Palace, in Palace Street.
