GROUPS in the Na Domo singing competition have their reasons for entering the event, for some it's the cash prize, for others it's the chance to be coached by professionals and for some it's about exposure.
But for the three sisters in the group Kabuciri ni Delai Tomaniivi, joining the competition was about bringing them closer.
The sisters Ivamere Rokovesa, Silivia Rasabasaba and Laite Koroinamara last sang together when their mother was alive.
Since then they have married, borne children and gone about their lives but they never forgot the talent nurtured by their parents.
"It was all about bringing us back together," Mrs Rokovesa said.
"We've been singing together since we were kids but the last time we sang together was in 2005 when our mother was still alive," she said.
She said the group had learnt a lot from the judges during the course of the competition.
"Through the competition we have all learnt to harmonise, how to start together and end together.
"The judges are upfront with their comments and they straighten you out on stage and we take these comments very constructively," she said.
Mrs Rokovesa said the group normally sang iTaukei songs with their father's guidance but the competition saw them branch out into English music with success.
"We want to thank our family, friends and co-workers for the support and we also thank the sponsors and organisers of the competition," she said.
Viewers of the competition can txt GKT to 868 for Vodafone and Inkk mobile phone network users to vote for Kabuciri ni Delai Tomaniivi.
The semi final of Na Domo will be held on October 26 at Marist Convent ground in Lami.
