Fresh from his win on BBC show The Voice, Jermain Jackman joined other talented youngsters at a local showcase.
Jermain, 18, watched the Concord Youth Board’s Platform showcase on Friday night to highlight the borough’s talent.
More than 300 people attended the show, with the young performers deciding all profits from the event should go to the family of Valerie Forde, a Hackney youth worker killed along with her 23-month-old daughter in March.
Jermain presented an award for outstanding achievement to a Hackney student recently accepted into Cambridge University.
Joyclen Mends, the centre manager at Homerton Youth Centre who helped to organise the showcase, said it was “a great success”.
