Garnering Second Place in the Vocal Performance category with his rendition of “Skylark” is the award-winning and gifted vocalist Liam Burrows.

In addition to being a finalist on Australia’s Got Talent (his audition has had nearly 2 million views on YouTube), Burrows has performed at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, was named Best Jazz Artist at the MusicOz Awards, and was the recipient of an Australian Entertainment MO Award for live performance.

Liam also won an Honorable Mention for his performance of “Never Fallen In Love So Easily Before”.

Co-Founders Candace Avery and Jim Morgan said, “We are very pleased that these young artists fared so well in the competition, although it is certainly no surprise to us. The depth and diversity of talent coming from Australia is exceptionally high, and it continues to set the bar for the competition.
