Ability Idol will give contestants the chance to perform in front of a live audience at Kadidjiny Park in Melville.

Supported by a $10,000 grant from the City of Melville Robin Hood Project, Ability Idol is the brainchild of Ben Cox.

For Ben, Ability Idol is a personal mission.

Currently working at Activ in Wembley, Ben dreams to be an event organiser. Ability Idol will give him the chance pursue his passion and help others with a disability achieve their dreams.

�Many people living with disability love music and love performing but don�t get the chance to show their gifts and talents,� Ben said.

�It gives people living with a disability a chance to perform in front of a live audience, which is great.

�I�m really excited to bring Ability Idol to life and hope that by taking part, people with disability will get the chance to achieve their own dreams.�

Registrations close on Friday, December 11.

To enter, budding performers need to submit an online video of their performance, with the top six finalists selected to perform in the open-air concert at Kadidjiny Park on Saturday, February 27.
