Experience thrills students

TWO students had quite an experience this week when they got on stage to sing a rendition of Bob Marley's famous track No Woman No Cry with American band Audiopharmacy.

Rosi Tora and Jerokee Mock from Suva's Veiuto Primary School said the moment was too fleeting to let their nerves get the better of them.

"They called for volunteers and because I know how to play the guitar, I got up and went on stage. I was so nervous at first but once I got up there, it got a little better," said Tora, who joined the band and took charge of the guitar.

Accompanying Tora was her classmate Mock, who went up and rapped a few lines.

"I really love rapping, it often makes me feel alive and I was really thankful to the band for allowing us some time on stage with them, it was really fun," he said.

"I also really like listening to Mr Grin and Sammy G and them.

I'd love it if the group came back."

The two Class Eight students said they chose to sing Marley's song because they both enjoyed.
