Wibsey singer’s journey on BBC hit show comes to an end
Singing hopeful Faheem Ashraf, 22, from Wibsey, was knocked out of BBC1’s The Voice on Saturday, just missing out on the live shows.
His mentor, Will.i.am – from The Black Eyed Peas fame – had took a shine to Faheem’s voice right from the start, and span around within seconds of hearing his blind audition.
He was then picked over team-mate Aaron Hill in the battle round, but his rendition of Jermaine Stewart’s ‘We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off’ was not enough to earn a place in Team Will’s final three.
Faheem was still ebullient on social media and said on Facebook: “I’ve loved every single minute of being a part of The Voice UK!
“Although I didn’t get the chance to sing anything that represented me as an artist, I did my absolute best to step up to every single challenge that was given- and can happily say that I did myself proud.
“Thank you so much for all your support, and please stay with me! This is just the beginning! Here’s to a magical 2016!
Faheem is still recovering from a broken leg, which he suffered during a mishap in a nightclub when celebrating getting through to the next stage of The Voice a few weeks back.
He still has plans on making a singing career for himself in the very near future. Watch this space!
