Talented pupil Yazdan Qafouri and his Five To Five bandmates were crowned winners of BBC1’s Let It Shine competition. Five To Five won the opportunity to star in a new musical, The Band, which features the soundtrack of Take That.
Five To Five sang their way to victory with two amazing performances of You Can’t Stop The Beat from musical Hairspray and Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus. The group had avoided being in the bottom two bands throughout the competition and outshone the two other finalists, Nightfall and Drive.
Gary Barlow’s musical, written by Tim Firth, starts in Manchester in September and will tour the UK ending in July 2018. Tickets go on sale from Monday April 3 at 12pm from The Band Musical’s website thebandmusical.com
Thank you to everyone who supported Yazdan!
