Third-year MT student on BBC’s latest talent show

Wed 7 October 2020

Jacob Fowler has made it through to the live rounds of Little Mix: The Search

The show sees the multi-award-winning girl group Little Mix create six bands and become mentors to a new wave of talent as they search for a support act for their next tour.

Successful singers who are chosen to join the new bands will live together and gain access to the team that made Little Mix international best-selling performers, including vocal coaches, song writers, producers and stylists.

Jacob, who has just entered his final year as a Musical Theatre student at Trinity Laban, first performed on Sunday’s show, winning a place in the next round. He will move on to the live shows and sing in front of industry professionals for his chance to be in the UK’s latest band.

Jacob comments –

“I’m so excited to be a part of this show – it’s not every day you get to be on prime-time BBC One! I just hope the journey can continue as far as the process goes as I’ve had the most amazing time so far.

“I wouldn’t have been prepared for this opportunity had it not been for my training at Trinity Laban, where I have grown in confidence over the last two years.”

Picked by BBC Music Introducing as one of their Hot For 2020 artists, Jacob has released singles ‘Now Warning’ and ‘Do You Ever’. They’ve received radio play, and even made an appearance on This Morning.
