Lexington Place Buskers Competition

I headed over to Maroubra Beach today with Charlie and Cooper to the Lexington Place Busker Competition. I'd been invited to help judge the competition. It was a beautiful suuny day and it was great to see all the locals come out to enjoy the show together. We were very impressed at the courage and talent of some of the very young performers who got up to sing or play for the crowd. Randwick City Council did a great job getting the competition organised. It was very encouraging to see the council working with the locals to create a fun community event.
Cooper made lots of new friends.
Samba Ninjas

Danielle won $1000 for her own arrangement of "Time after Time." She is only 15 but already has a very promising voice.
11 year old Taylor sung really well without any accompaniment, she only entered at the last minute but carried off a $250 third prize.
Eddie Jackson came second after an amazingly energetic tap dancing performance. (Once he'd found a bit of wood to stomp on)
