Some of the stars of the current television series The Voice will be taking time out from their performance schedule to attend Saturday’s Campsie Food Festival (10am-4pm).
Seventeen-year-old Lacey Madison, who aced her blind audition singing Chris Isaak’s, Wicked Game, landing her a spot on #teamkelly (Kelly Rowland), will be among the stars who will be greeting fans, signing autographs and smiling for photos.
"I’ve been to Canterbury-Bankstown a few times and really enjoyed how different it is to other parts of Sydney," Ms Madison said.
"I’m really excited. I’m a massive foodie and share all my food on my Youtube channel (Lacey Madison), so I’m looking forward to tasting all the food the Festival has to offer.
"Every suburb has its own little culture and I definitely know that’s what I’ll be getting when I come out to Canterbury-Bankstown."
Given this season’s The Voice is only in its infancy, the artists haven’t had many opportunities to meet and greet our fans.
"Campsie Food Festival will be one of the first bigger media events I’ll be going to, where people will officially know that I made it to the Top 48," Ms Madison said.
"It means a lot to me that I can meet the fans because I love meeting new people and hearing how much they love the show and what it means to them."
Ms Madison has also given an insight into what impact the show has had on her.
"I was awe-struck by all the coaches. I was crying by the time my blind audition was over because Kelly, Delta and Boy George all wanted to take a chance on me," she said.
"Win or lose, being an artist on this show has been a life-long dream of mine and I’m just excited that people get to hear my voice and see my journey."
Mayor Khal Asfour said Campsie Food Festival goers can not only meet The Voice stars, but also sit in the big red revolving The Voice chair.
"If you ever wondered what it’s like, then here’s your chance," Mayor Asfour said.
