The very first elimination round for the exciting adult category of the hit singing reality show, ‘Rising Stars…It’s Your Voice’ was held at the Umhlanga Function Venue, recently, with a theme of ‘Old is Gold’.
The colour scheme for the glittering evening was black and white and once again, the talented contestants captivated the live studio audience, who praised them for their poise and dedication.
“Our very eager contestants kept the studio audience spell bound with popular hits of the 60s and 70s, songs made famous by Kishore Kumar, SP Balasubramaniam, Mohammed Rafi, P Susheela, Lata Mangeshkar, K J Yasudas, Asha Bhosle, T M Soundararajan, Mukesh, S Janki, and others,” said the proud organisers.
The anchor judges were Prof Dhiren Allopi and Rajive Mohan with Vanessa Karthiegasen Pillay as the celebrity judge for this round.
All judges come with a wealth of knowledge and are highly recognised in the fields of vocals and music.
The dynamic Ishara Desai was once again the host and like always, she perfectly managed to add excitement to the show.
Regional manager of the Rising Sun, Shireen Govender was also present and was astounded by the high standard of talent showcased.
Hosted by Leopard Paw Productions in partnership with the Rising Sun and Glow TV, this fantastic reality show is one of its kind, providing a platform for local talent to shine. Since this was an elimination round, two contestants had to unfortunately leave.
Leopard Paw Productions is grateful to the Rising Sun and Revive Beauty Spar for sponsoring gifts to the parting contestants.
“A production filmed for television purposes, this reality show is doing a great job at assisting aspiring artists to provide a platform to showcase their talent in the art form of music. All episodes will be screened on Glow TV,” added organisers.
In light of another prosperous round, Leopard Paw Productions would like to thank the crew and respective sponsors for their support.
As always, an audio recording showcasing proud sponsors was played throughout the reality show.
The contestants are now preparing themselves for their next performance, the second elimination round, which is scheduled to take place at the Umhlanga Function Venue on October 31, 2018 at 6: 30pm.
Being a community project, sponsorship is always a major challenge, which invariably has an impact more especially on the shooting, sound and lighting.
