Singing sensation Dennis Demille wowed judges on series 12 of Britain’s Got Talent – now he’s ready to wow Highworth.

Big Highworth Community Foundation are a group that organises various events throughout the year to raise money for local charities and help local people.

This year, their charity events have just gotten bigger as Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Dennis Demille is set to grace the stage.

Dennis was one half of The Ratpackers, who sang their way to the semi-finals in 2018, with songs such as New York, New York and That’s Life.

“Dennis and I went to highschool together in Cardiff, so I've known him personally for 46 years,” said Alison Cross-Jones, chair of Big Highworth Community Foundation.

“He even taught my brother break dancing as a younger man!

“I've followed Dennis' singing career from the start. He's always been someone who's cared for others and so of course when I approached him to do this concert he didn't hesitate to say yes,” she added.

Dennis' voice has been described as a smooth mix of the old Motown favourites Daid Ruffin with Barry White and Charlie Wilson.

He was described by Alesha Dixon in his audition as "a breath of fresh air," whilst Amanda Holden told the duo "I want to see you in the final."

"There's something about you in your character, your charisma, that's just infectious. You just brought such a lovely, gorgeous energy into the room,"Dixon added.

Sports fans may also recognise his vocals, as Dennis had one of his tracks used by Sky Sports in a race montage after the British Grand Prix and as part of the Sky Premier League coverage.

Since Britain’s Got Talent, Dennis and Marvin have continued to perform together as well as launching successful solo careers around the UK.

"I’ve never been to Highworth before but I’m delighted and humbled to be invited to offer my support,” said Mr Demille.

The event will be taking place on Saturday, October 21 from 7.30-10.30pm in St Michael’s & All Angel’s Church, Highworth.

All money raised from the event will go to this year’s charities: Highworth Community Shed, Royal British Legion Highworth Branch, Uplands Enterprise Trust and Highworth Historical Society.

“The charities were chosen because three of them are small, local charities who need funding. The UET was chosen because of the work it does to support local young people and adults with disabilities,” Ms Cross-Jones explained.

The event is being sponsored by local Highworth business J L Mindset Performance.

Doors will be open from 6.45pm and tickets cost £15 per person, with all money raised from the ticket costs, raffle and bar going to charity.
