Aspiring gospel singers are invited to attend auditions that will be held in Louis Trichardt on Saturday (31 October).
The venue is 97 President Street (next to Game and opposite MIDAS) and the auditions take place between 09:00 and 17:00. The audition is for pre-qualifying in the I Can Sing Gospel music competition, which is the brainchild of Newie Nthabalala and Newie Music Ministry.
“This is a gospel music competition searching for those talented singers,” said Newie. “The main aim is to assist those who have talent but do not have the know-how. I Can Sing Gospel will give a helping hand, then sustain and monitor their music journey for the coming three years.”
According to Newie, the competition offers great prizes for ten winners. The overall winner out of the 10 finalists will also win an extra R5 000 in cash. “The top winner will be the face of I Can Sing Gospel Limpopo Season, and this will be our Limpopo gospel star,” she said.
The public will vote for their favourite singer from the top 20 singers. Newie said that I Can Sing Gospel is the first of the many competitions still to come and that many aspiring singers would benefit from the initiative as it aimed to help those with a singing talent who are not sure what next step to take.
Newie is an accomplished gospel artist who is well known for songs such as Ngangoho vha Murena, U Mudzimu e ethe, and U Mudzimu wa Madembe na vhutolo.
