Zachary Hill wins singing contract at The Dockyard Theatre.

The winner of the inaugural So You Think You Can Sing? presented by The Dockyard Theatre and vocal coach Rosa de Castro, was chosen recently.

He is 18 year-old Clifton College Matric student, Zachary Hill who was amongst the top 12 who performed two songs each with The Dockyard Showband. The audience got to vote for their three favourite singers, this together with the judges’ scores, came out with the overall winner.

Hill receives a singing contract at the Dockyard Theatre, a state-of-the-art microphone, recording time and hair-styling for a year from Headboyz. Taking second and third place were Ruan Geldenhuys (Durban North) and Kim van Elden (Highway). Durban certainly does have talent and this event is set for bigger and better things next year in the quest to unearth talent in KZN.
