Rising stars wow judges once again

The soulful voices of young talented singers filled the Umhlanga Function Venue on Sunday, March 11 as Leopard Paw Productions presented the first elimination round of Rising Stars… It’s your Voice.

The reality show is a vocal contest featuring songs in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu and Gujarati arranged, co-ordinated and performed live. It is hosted by director of Leopard Paw Productions, Ishara Desai and judged by Rajive Mohan, and Vanessa Karthiegasen Pillay, Prof Dhiren Allopi.

These three esteemed anchor judges are definitely names to be reckoned with and have a combined knowledge of over a century in the art of song and music.

The contestants, all under the age of 18, sang their hearts out as they battled to avoid elimination and keep their dream alive. The performances were impressive as each contestant brought their best but sadly, three young singers had to be eliminated at the show’s end.

The three young stars eliminated did not go empty handed however as they received a number of gifts from the event sponsors including the Rising Sun Community Newspapers, Hi-tec Construction, Superkids Daycare and others.

They also received the kind words of Prof Allopi who said, “To see you little children so passionate about singing in vernacular is deeply inspiring.”

The second elimination round of the contest will take place on Saturday, March 31 at 9am. Season two of the contest will be open to adults. Prospective sponsors and those seeking further information may contact Ishara Desai on 071-890-8883 or 083-419-6166.
