Sounds like Gerard’s night

UP and coming rap artist Gerard i2 has scooped this year’s Sounds Like Summer title.
In the tightest result in the contest’s five-year history, the Strabane wordsmith out-performed Justin Black, Paul Tully and Heads of State to claim the win.
Strabane’s Alley Theatre was packed on Friday night as four acts put themselves before the judges for a final time. And what a night it proved to be, with each act providing a spectacle that had the audience singing, clapping and even dancing along.
In the end though it came down to a split decision, with upcoming star Gerard i2 eventually getting the nod.
