Hope to woo music producers

Atasa Moceituba

HIS parents started taking him for choir practice when he was in Class Four and later realised he had talent after he was given a solo performance part in his school choir when he was in Class Eight.

The Nacobo, Ovalau lad is the eldest child in a family of two and attends Ratu Sukuna Memorial School.

Seru Macanavere Martin and his partner moved and stirred the crowd and judges during the quarter-finals.

The pair sang Endless Love from the Album Why Do Fools Fall in Love sung originally by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie and released in the 1980s.

The 16-year-old said he joined this year's Kaila! Star Search competition hoping to get noticed by local and international music producers.

"I wanted to showcase my god-given talent and use it to the best of my ability."

Martin said after the heats he realised that he needed to improve on his stage presentation.

"I sang a duet in the quarter-finals and it was a big task to perform.

"I think I could improve on my ability to connect with the audience so that's what I'll be hoping to improve in the semi-finals."

He said singers and dancers should make use of their talents.

"My message to other singers and even dancers out there to make use of their god-given abilities and participate in competitions."
