Star talent

WHEN you have god given talents, use them, says, 17-year-old Fulori Radinivatulawa after she won a place in the Kaila! Star Search semi-final competition.

The lass from Mudu in Koro impressed the judges after singing Someone Like You by Adele.

She says singing is not a new thing given she comes from a family that loves to sing.

"I come from a very creative family. My father is a singer and I first started singing when I was 10," Radinivatulawa said.

"I realised that I may have some singing ability when my friends started to admire my voice and the way I sang."

Radinivatulawa said joining and taking part in this year's competition was an eye opener.

She said this was an opportunity she would not take for granted.

"I joined Kaila! because I wanted to experience live stage performance and wanted to get over stage fright. I am hoping to gain more confidence from the competition and also socialise with more people like myself.

"I have been preparing by singing in front of at least 10-20 friends at school and yes there has been a lot of singing in the bathroom. I am trying to perfect my stage craft as a way to get over my weaknesses."

Radinivatulawa said she would prefer to sing Firework by Katy Perry and a bit of Shania Twain and Lady Antebellum's music in the semi-finals.
