Fin Henderson is hoping to win the Salute Music Makers competition with his A Million Places video.

Fin Henderson is hoping to win the Salute Music Makers competition with his A Million Places video.

His song and video, entitled ‘A Million Places’ has shot up into top 10 contention and now has a chance of claiming a top six slot.

This would earn him £10,000, but he is now eyeing the number one position, which comes with a £50,000 prize.

However, Fin now needs the votes of the general public and is hoping people in the Pocklington area will get behind him.

People have the chance to check out his new video vote for him until Friday 27 October.

Fin said: “This final stage of the competition is reliant on voting so I am hoping people will get behind me.

“Currently I am in second place, and when they last posted, there was only 16 votes separating 1st and 20th place, so it is super, super close.

“It would be great to take first place, and obviously the super exciting prize, which would make a massive difference to a musician.”
