WINNERS OF DREAM JOBBING'S COMPETITION ANNOUNCED AND THEY ARE :
Charlotte France and Naika Richard
And now I am also your opinion Silvy!! :)))
An up date on competition and I can tell you that Charlotte France is NOT taking part in the Florida shows. She herself does not know yet exactly when and where she will be joining MB but it is not Florida. Whether a change in the whole winner(s) package has taken place as regards event and date, I don't know, or if Naika Richard will in fact be with MB in Florida, for there is no communication with Naika. She has a Twitter account but does not appear to use it and I haven't checked FB for her. Have to hope someone who attends show lets us know or, we get to see photos or, videos on YouTube !!!
I'm just hoping MB is going to tour UK and Charlotte will join him then....fingers crossed !!! :)

Hi Sylvia, I was frankly surprised when it was announced that a U.K. applicant had won, because it was stipulated in the rules that the winner had to have a permit to work in the U.S.. Maybe Charlotte did and there was a snag for some reason, but I thought the permit might have been a reason. Thanks for the update, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Quite correct Sylvie that a work permit was stipulated in the rules therefore anyone who didn't have and got through to the top 20, I should have thought, would have been disqualified at that stage if they didn't have because that was part of the interview process to make sure they were suitable so believe work permit would have come under the classification of suitability. Also too, Charlotte has said she doesn't know where yet, so Michael has plenty of other concerts scheduled in the States so it could work out for some of those. I don't see why surprised when a UK applicant had won for what about Michael Howarth we were all for him winning and therefore believing he had a work permit, surely ??
I should imagine more a question of fact that Michael now has only 2 backup singers and therefore if he keeps Ashley and Amanda to add 1 to make 3 is okay but to add 2 to make 4 could see him thinking that wouldn't work all that well. Do not believe either it would be fair on each girl as then it is saying they are joint winners, whereas, if each is given opportunity to appear on stage on their own then each is being giving the prize they won with only location being changed, i.e. they are not sharing the prize but each being giving it in their own right which, to me, is fair.

Hi Sylvia, I don’t know anything and frankly, I didn’t mention the work permit to Michael H before, because I was afraid to burst his bubble, in case he didn’t have the permit... I didn’t know whether the selecting panel checked that info first. Also, it was my understanding that the performing slot was this one specific week. If Michael and/or his team want to extend/change that time, it’s their business. I guess you're more informed than I am because I didn’t check the site to read whether it was specified the 2 winners were equal winners or shared the prize. In any case, it’s only important to them, so I wish them both well in their experience. Take care Sylvia. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
It could be possible that the girls are not ready to join the band in Florida and now they are studying.
Or maybe one will follow MB in US tour and the other in MB UK tour.
I guess that if you have a work permission, then you can work in US, so first the document then you can leave your country!

All a little confused! (????) We will know more soon! Thanks for the update, Sylvia!
At last a piece of news concerning Charlotte France, one of the winners of the Dream Jobbing Competition, and it is that she will be appearing on stage with Michael at the show in the UK to be held at the Bluebell Hotel, Burton Agnes, Nr Bridlington on 1st August and she is delighted. Have to say, I am too, for will get chance to see, hear and hopefully meet her and will definitely make sure I have plenty of pictures to share on here with you all.

Thanks for the update Sylvia. I'm guessing you're in touch with her? In any case, I'm glad she'll finally get her prize! :D Take care Sylvia and thanks again. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Just bringing this thread up-to-date for it has been announced, and also a blog post created, to say that Charlotte France, UK winner of Dream Jobbing competition will take to stage with Michael during his UK April Tour. She will be on stage at Sheffield City Hall on 24th April, Cliffs Pavilion, Southend-on-Sea, 26th April and the Royal Albert Hall, London on 28th April. Charlotte is delighted to be appearing in Sheffield as this is her home town and obviously, ecstatic, about RAH and says it all feels like a dream. She thanks Michael for giving her the opportunity to appear on stage, at RAH, for it is something most artistes hope to achieve but only very few do so, congratulations, definitely, extended to Charlotte and wishing her, without doubt, a fabulous time with Michael and the band .... have a blast Charlotte !!! :)
