Voxy News has revealed that after 4 weeks, 50 entrants and over 70,000 online votes, a winner has been found for the huge “Open 4 Elton” promotion.
The lucky person is Katie Thompson, who hails from Hokitika and has already started notching up some impressive accomplishments including being nominated for the Horizon Award at the National Country Music Awards in Hamilton this year.
The singer/songwriter’s reaction to the news was: “You’ve made my day; you made my career so far.”
Promoters for Elton’s November 25 concert in Dunedin, Capital C: Concerts, have been knocked out by the response to this promotion.
Company CEO Phil Sprey says, ”Any one of the top entrants could have been up to the event, we are excited that the public selected Katie and are sure that the big audience will warm to her considerable talent.”
