On Saturday, 14-year-old Sofia from Stockport took to the stage on the Voice Kids UK. She wowed us all with her version of ’99 Red Ballons’, well everyone except the coaches. The UK public was outraged.
PR music guru, Dean Midas Maynard from Durham, who has championed many reality TV winners took straight to Twitter asking if anyone knew Sofia and her family. Fast forward just a few days and Sofia has signed with Dean Midas Maynard PR.
Dean said, “Sofia is quite simply one of the best singers we have ever heard, I am astounded that no one turned their chairs, but their loss is our HUGE gain”
Sofia said, “All I can say is “WOW” I am totally blown away by the public’s response to my blind audition on The Voice Kids on Saturday night. I wasn’t sure if anybody would like it especially after not getting a turn, and It means the world to me that they do. The twitter response was incredible and totally overwhelming thank you all. I am over the moon that Dean Midas Maynard PR reacted so positively and so quickly and I am delighted to be on #TeamMidas and look forward to working with the team and seeing what happens next. Thank you so so much!!!”
Dean represents some of the best upcoming singers in the UK, including Metis, Liberty Grant, Angel Gold, Burbank,Adalaide Adams & Emma Kennedy, amongst many others.
