Local boy

Fourteen year old Jack Vidgen lives on Sydney’s Northen Beaches just a few suburbs away from us. He goes to the high school Felix will be going to next year. He has the most incredible voice but even more inspiring is he just seems like a great kid.

  • I posted about him just the other day, and my husband actually watched it (he despises these types of shows. Would rather a non-anaethesised vascectomy, I’d suspect than to sit through a ‘talent’ show).

    But he clicked on the link, then all of the others I”d put up. AND he made conversation later about it. This kid must have something if he can wow my husband!

  • Oh, I got incredibly teary at the sight of Jack too. How proud his parents must be!
