Gordon Hendricks to represent Collingwood

 

Gordon Hendricks was named the 2017 Collingwood representative for the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Contest, to be held in Memphis during Elvis Week, August 11 – 19.

Hendricks, who hails from England, was selected during the Grand Finals competition at the 23rd annual Collingwood Elvis Festival. Hendricks was also Collingwood’s Grand Champion at the 2014 Collingwood Elvis Festival.

“It’s an honour,” said Hendricks, of winning in Collingwood a second time. “I came with an open mind, and to win twice, it’s very special to me.”

Preliminary rounds took place throughout the weekend, and with almost 100 tribute artists, the competition was tough.

Good luck to Gordon Hendricks in Memphis and congratulations to all our winners!
