Gospel’s answer to X-Factor raising the rafters in the Photolink Studios!

Time2Shine, the UK’s no.1 gospel talent search, will be filming its first ever Manchester audition in the Photolink Studios this month.

The series, which adopts an X Factor-style format with knockout auditions and contestant Boot Camps, will air on Sky later this year, culminating in a live final at Indig02 in London’s O2 arena where contestants will compete for a £100,000 record deal. Former Blue Peter presenter now radio DJ Diane Louise Jordan is lined up to present.

Now in its third series, Time2Shine has been buoyed by the mainstream popularity of gospel music in the UK since launch of the Christian & Gospel Albums Chart in March and the success of vocal talent shows such as The X Factor and The Voice.

Organisers Black Grape Global, the entertainment management company behind the series, are confident this year’s Time2Shine will be even bigger and better than ever – and we are absolutely over the moon they’ve chosen our studios to host one of the first auditions outside of the capital!

Take a look at the new season trailer here.
