Westminster music student through to knock-out stage of BBC The Voice UK

Music 9 March 2015

Commercial Music Performance BMus Honours student Emmanuel Nwamadi, currently studying at the University of Westminster's Faculty of Media, Arts and Design, performed in the battles of Saturday’s BBC One programme The Voice UK,  and was voted through to the knock-out stage.

The 23-year-old Nigerian from London performed 'The Living Years' by  Mike + the Mechanics, together with battle opponents Classical Reflections. It was a difficult decision for coach Ricky Wilson, but he decided to save Emmanuel and vote him through to the next stage of the competition.

We wish him the best of luck for next week and we will keep you updated with all his progress below.
