Stars grow in confidence

THE Suva Civic Auditorium hosted a loud enthusiastic crowd for the semi-finals of the Kaila! Star Search last night.

And buoyed by the supportive crowd, all 14 semi-finalists gave their all to win a place in the final of the competition.

The semi-finals also hosted the Vodafone Hibiscus Festival 2014 teen contestants who introduced themselves to the raucous crowd.

The continuous mentoring sessions from Savuto Vakadewavosa and Laisa Vulakoro paid dividends for the 14 contestants who have grown in confidence and style since their initial performances.

Kaila! co-ordinator Savuto Vakadewavosa earlier said the contestants had transformed into confident individuals.

"This year's contestants have a unique passion and love for the performing arts," Vakadewavosa said.

The Kaila! Star Search final will be held during the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival 2014.
