On the 25th of February, the “Loves Duets from the Heart Singing” Competition took place at the Wyndham Leisure and Events Centre. This event consisted of five pairs of talented singers who needed to sing 2 songs; 1st song was a “warm up” whilst the 2nd song was to be judged based on the vocal harmony/diction, stage presence/interpretation, audience impact and voice quality.
First prize was awarded to Justin Abella and Antonette Francisco who both received 2 return tickets to the Philippines donated by Philippine Tours, trophy and a recording of the composition; second prize went to Kristian Garcia and Dianne Alegre who both received $700 and trophy; and third prize went to Karen Esco and Michelle dela Pena who got $500 and trophy.
The three judges, who were of foreign background, consisted of individuals having a great understanding of how it’s like to be in the music industry. First judge works in a recording studio; second judge, a music teacher; and finally, the third judge, a musical director.
Special guests included Harmonico Filipino, Deuterium Band, the Quinal siblings and Alyssa Limbo and Rae Santos, who both interpreted the original composition of Mr Rollie Limun titled “We Can Make It Happen”. It was attended by an audience of over 200. Acknowledgements also to Talyer Auto Service, Laverton Dental Clinic and Amelia’s Store for their sponsorship.
