PUTTING all his preparation into the hands of God is what Sioeli Korovakaturaga will be doing in the next few days before the final show of the 2018 Kaila! Star Search competition.

The 17-year-old was overjoyed after being relayed the news by a friend that he was one of the top 10 finalists of the show. He said if it had not been for the support from his parents, he wouldn’t have reached where he was now in the show.

“My parents had allowed me to take part in the Kaila! Star Search and if it wasn’t for them I would be at home studying,” he said.

“I am looking forward to entertaining the crowd and my family.” Sioeli said although his participation in the show was a challenging one, he was still excited that he made the cut to be in the top 10. “I was up the whole night waiting for 1am to see The Fiji Times online,” he said.

“Someone told me win or lose at least I made it to the finals and its a hard long journey to come through to the finals because I have my school also to balance with my practising and singing.”

The final show will be held at 7pm on August 11 at the Valelevu ground in Nasinu.
