PASS a building site where Thomas Bucinikas is working and you are likely to hear the sound of music and him singing.

Hod carrier and labourer Thomas, 26, is king of the karaoke and could be in tune to pocket a £5,000 prize this week.

Thomas, of Northfields, Biggles-wade, has fought his way to the national final of the Hungry Horse Karaoke Krazy talent competition.

He reached the national finals with his rendition of Wise Men by James Blunt and Ordinary People by John Legend at the Highwayman Hungry Horse in Graveley.

"It is great to get to the final and I love karaoke. My dad had a karaoke business and I started singing to the music when I was 10.

"Karaoke is great fun and I can't believe I have won my way into the final. Now I am looking forward to the final next month and doing a bit of practice now and again at work and at home."

Jennie Fisher, the Hungry Horse brand manager who has organised the competition, said: "Thomas was outstanding.

"He obviously has heaps of talent and it was great to see him and the other contestants having so much fun in the regional final as well as raising lots of money for Children in Need."

If you want to cheer for the Biggleswade crooner then go along to the Highwayman today at 7.30pm.
