Ahead of Newcastle Pride this weekend, X Factor winner Shayne Ward has been speaking about the importance of the event, sharing stage with Sinitta and his dream collaborations! Shayne has had four UK top ten hits with That's My Goal, No Promises, If That's OK With You/ No U Hang Up and Breathless. He is currently working on his fourth album.
Shayne was recently in the North East region for the South Tyneside Summer Festival at Bents Park, South Shields. He performed alongside B*Witched in front of hundreds of fans on July 13.
Shayne spoke to Rachel Sweeney about coming back for Newcastle Pride and how he feels about sharing a stage with his once mentor Sinitta:
WHY IS PRIDE IMPORTANT?
SINITTA WAS YOUR MENTOR AT ONE POINT, WHEN YOU WERE ON THE X FACTOR. HOW EXCITED ARE YOU TO BE PERFORMING ALONGSIDE HER?
WHAT IS IT THAT JUDGES LOOK FOR ON THE X FACTOR?
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE CURRENT MUSIC SCENE?
WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOU?
