One cannot deny that, Charter House’s Stars of the Future Reality Show is one of the best musical talent shows that raw talents are scouted, nurtured, groomed and brought into the limelight to shine.
Stars Of The Future is a reality show which has given opportunity to many untapped musical talents to realize their dreams of being musicians; few of such names that come in mind are Irene Logan, Efya (Jane Awindor), Adina among others.
At the launch of the SOF season 5 some few weeks ago, the contestants promised the audience, they were ready to excel in their various performances when the time comes for them to show the world what they are made up.
The twelve contestants made up of seven girls and five guys will on Thursday (Today) at the National Theatre step on the big stage and mesmerize the general public to some selected tunes of their favourite music stars.
It is also the first time that the contestants will perform to a live audience after the show was launched. This means that, every contestant will be looking at starting the journey on a good note by impressing the audience as well as the judges which includes radio presenter, Doreen Andoh, music producer Zapp Mallet and CEO of EKB records, Kiki Banson.
The 12 finalists includes; Abigail Bih, Asantewaah Essel, Daniella Dankwah-Coffie (Niiella), David De-Graft Crentsil, Elizabeth Joseph, Emmanuel Yawson, Grace Ocansey, Henry Nuamah, Kwame Wiredu, Rauhel Halidou Yacouba, Reynolds Kwame Addow and Wiyaala Noela.
After going through voice coaching lessons, breathing exercises as well as singing with live band, it is very obvious that, they are set to give out a performance of a lifetime. First appearance is very important, so each of them will try to take opportunity and write their names on the minds of the judges.
They will be supported by the Patch Bay Band, a twelve man musical group under the tutelage of Philip Acquah with Victor Dey and Fifi Finder on keyboard and guitar respectively.
Admission to the weekly performances scheduled to come off at 6pm every Thursday at the National Theatre will be free. Patrons are encouraged to come out in their numbers to support their favourite contestants and also vote to keep their favorites in the competition by texting their names to the MTN short code 1750.
