EXPECT a different performance from the Pasifika Voices when they take part in the Miss World Fiji pageant at the Civic Centre tonight.
Guided by musical genius Igelese Ete, Pasifika Voices will be providing the entertainment for the evening with several original songs lined up.
"We have various regional Pacific and Fijian songs as well as dances that we have prepared to accompany the various contestants," Mr Ete said.
Tonight's show will be led by assistant musical director, Eroni Dina and will feature various local talents like Kiti Niumataiwalu and Jasmine Duxbury.
Ms Duxbury will be singing the theme song of the night, Keep on Walking which is directed to the fight against mental health ù the theme of the 2012 Miss World Fiji pageant.
"I think it's fantastic that the pageant organisers have taken on this theme. Mental Health has been stuck with an ugly stigma that needs to be addressed and it's the Keep on Walking song as well as indicatives' like this pageant that will help push this cause out for not only Fiji but the world to be aware of and acknowledge."
Pasifika Voices have been preparing all week for tonight's show and Mr Ete admits it has been an intense preparation.
"People should look forward to something that's very different from what we've performed before. This is the first time we have combined our music with fashion; we will enhance the contestants and not to overshadow them with our performance."
Tickets for the Miss World Fiji are sold at $25 and are available at the MHCC.
Entertainment will also be provided by the renowned Vou Dance Group.
"We want to pay homage to our forefathers, our tradition and show this through the elegance of our maramas," pageant director Andhy Blake said.
"The girls have been mentored for a month to capture the rich tradition. We have always encouraged them to be grounded and always be conscience of where they come from because it will set them apart from the other contestants in the Miss World." The Miss World Fiji begins at 7pm.
