|Darlings got Talent 2014
Darling Super Stars once again gracing Tannie Evita’s stage!
Darling has been showing off talent for a number of years at The Darling Trust annual Talent Show – ‘Darling’s Got Talent’ with Omnia Grobler who expertly coordinated and MC’d the last three years running.
A night of pure Darling Talent dazzled our audience on Friday 18th, Madiba Day celebrating Madiba’s ideals by encouraging our youth and community to follow their dreams and most importantly believe in themselves.
Excitement was high with an event and line-up boasting local talent from all corners of Darling – a variety of drama, dance, rap and a few darling ‘song birds’ shaking their tail feathers, show stoppers of note!
As each contestant came on, the audience erupted because Darling truly does have talent.
Dianne Rossi from SAJE, South African Association for Jazz Education (www.saje.org.za); Desire Theunnes from Barney’s Angels in Darling and Frits van Ryneveld-van der Merwe from Mantis Mall in Darling, graciously gave of their time to judge this electric event and they all expressed what a tough decision it was to have to choose between each unique performance – settling in the end on originality, confidence and execution of each act.
This year we had 2 volunteers from the Darling community, assisting Omnia with the auditions, rehearsals and helping with the contestants on the evening of the show – a special Thank You! Enid Robat and Nikki Anderson.
As always the generous sponsorship from local businesses and residents for the prizes was overwhelming!
The Talent Show - 'Darling's Got Talent' is one of The Darling Trust's many projects – focused as a 'life skills' program, creating a platform for providing the community with energetic and positive activity, building confidence, and harnessing and developing hidden talents. There is a lack of activity for the youth during school holidays and The Talent Show caters for all age groups from all schools and church groups in Darling and surrounds. This event provides an opportunity for all individuals and groups to showcase anything they’d like to perform.
Thank you to those of you who braved the dreary weather and came out in support of these exceptionally brave and talented contestants.
Thank you DARLINGS for your consistent support and well done to all the contestants - YOU ARE ALL WINNERS!
