Sing City is our annual competition for young people in Nottingham City, and last year's event was exclusively online!
Instead of performing on stage, entrants were asked to film themselves singing two songs and send in their entries. All singers were then invited to a workshop with Nottingham star Rob Green! After the workshop, all entrants improved their work and sent in their songs again. Judging took place on 23rd November and the winners were announced on 27th November!

Vocal Workshop with Rob Green!
A massive thank you to singer/songwriter and long-time friend of Nottingham Music Hub, Rob Green! Rob Green led the first workshop looking at lyrics and how to effectively communicate and deliver their meanings and emotions. Rob has performed at countless online festivals and events since the lockdown started, and he was incredibly helpful in explaining how best to perform and record a live performance at home.
