Young singer wins music competition
Ettalong singer Jade Hinchliffe has been crowned one of two junior champions in Central Coast Council's 2019 Discovered competition.
Jade was named joint winner of the Kids Discovered section along with Olivia McGuire.
Her father, Mr Jason Hinchliffe, said Jade could often be seen busking around the Peninsula.
He said young people on the Coast were increasingly turning to busking as a way to build confidence and that it was pleasing to see Central Coast Council providing opportunities like the Discovered competition to aspiring young artists.
Mr Hinchliffe said his daughter attributed her success in the competition to music workshops put on by Central Coast Council and Gina Geoffrey's Music.
"These workshops are put on for free for youth in performing arts."
