Welwyn Garden City’s Harry to appear on Don’t Stop Believing

AN aspiring theatre performer from WGC will strut his stuff on national television tonight (Sunday).

Harry Lockyear will be performing with his dance troupe ToneAcity on Channel Five’s X Factor-style talent show, Don’t Stop Believing.

The 10-piece group will be performing live in front of the show judges Tamsin Outhwaite, Duncan James, Anastasia and Charles Klapow, and host Emma Bunton.

And Harry, a former student at Monk’s Walk School in WGC, cannot wait.

“Being on the show is going to be extremely nervous but a fantastic experience,” the 23-year-old said.

“I can’t wait to meet the other teams and sing and dance our hearts out and show how hard we have worked.”

Harry, who up until January was living with his parents in Great Gannett, WGC, said he could not reveal the name of the exact song ToneAcity would be performing, but confirmed that it was “a classic 80s pop song”, and that it had been inspired by the hit US comedy show Glee.

“We’re turning it into a musical, dancing extravaganza,” said Harry.

“It’s a Glee performance.”

Harry, who now lives in Fulham, said it was always his dream to perform on the West End stage, and he’ll be hoping ToneAcity’s performance on Sunday acts as a stepping stone to getting him there.

“Don’t Stop Believing gives me the chance to meet with my friends and sing and perform, but also to have fun and enjoy every moment,” he said.

“I get the chance to do what I love with people who are amazing!”

Don’t Stop Believing is on Channel Five tonight, at 6.25pm.
