The twenty-six-year-old may have been narrowly beaten by 2014 ‘The Voice’ winner, Jermain Jackman, but he still managed to pull off a fantastic showing for the charity, U Support.
Adam Gregory, Chairman and Founder of U Support was proud of the result from Saturday’s event, “You saw what Chris Royal done tonight, he blew everybody away.” Following on, Adam praised the supporting acts, “even Yasmin Corrigan, Natalie Good and Luke Targett done a great job.”
U Support didn’t just organise a concert in The Stage Door, they also planned a raffle that saw Lucy Hills pick up the big bear from the prizes. She said, “The event tonight was exactly what I expected, relaxing and entertainment throughout, I loved it.”
After ‘An Evening with Chris Royal’ had finished, Mr Royal had nothing but positives to take from the event. The 2014 ‘The Voice’ finalist said “I thought the event tonight was wicked, it’s not about numbers for me, it is about people enjoying themselves.”
U Support, established in 2003, has helped disadvantaged children attend anything from sporting events to theatre trips in their twelve-year existence. With over four thousand experiences a year, the charity is certainly an ever-growing one.
The charity has been knocking on the doors of the biggest shows well before this event was calendared. The likes of the ‘X-Factor’ and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ were, and are still, on their minds to get acts in for their fund-raising events.
Mr. Gregory told me that ‘The Voice’ were delighted to support their charity, “Sir Tom Jones, no word of a lie, was thrilled with the news, they were like ‘lets do it, lets do it’.” Ever since U Support made an agreement with the show he has been treated to the likes of Chris Royal at the charity’s shows.
During the 2014 series of ‘The Voice’, Royal met Adam Gregory, Chairman and Founder of the U Support charity. He said “Adam talked to me about the charity, I thought it was a good cause and chance to make my own contribution.”
After another successful event for U Support at The Stage Door, how far can this great group actually go? Gregory said “What we’re eventually trying to do is have a big concert and invite the guys from the ‘The Voice’, ‘X Factor’ and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’.
