Tribute bands’ winning event

Have your say

WANNABE popstars showed off their talents in Sheffield to raise more than £12,000 for disabled charity Mencap

The Y Factor event was held at Crystal bar in Sheffield, sponsored by Investec Wealth and Investment, which has an office in Napier Street, near Ecclesall Road, Sheffield.

Rob Travis, investment adviser at Investec, was delighted when the act he appeared in won the competition, as One Direction tribute band Wrong Direction.

Rob teamed up with representatives from Nabarro, HLW Keeble Hawson and Barber Harrison and Platt for a rendition of the popular boyband’s summer 2011 hit That’s What Makes You Beautiful.

Wrong Direction were among seven acts who competed for votes from a judges’ panel and members of the audience.
