LATEST: Local musician Rod Walmsley has won the Song 4 Alana song competition with 29% of the vote.

Mr Walsmley's song Waiting To Hear was chosen in a poll by our readers.

Twenty-four songs were entered into the Song 4 Alana song competition by local artists wanting to make a difference for hearing impaired Bundaberg toddler Alana Reid.

Alana suffers from microtia, meaning small or absent ear, and needs surgery in America to correct her hearing. 

The procedure will cost the Reid family, who have created the Hear 4 Alana charity, $97,000.

The band or musician who wins the Song 4 Alana competition will also have the honour of their song being the first one Alana hears after her surgery is performed.
