EMTV Vocal Fusion successfully staged the Grand Finals of Season One last night at the host venue, Cosmopolitan – Port Moresby. The night featured the final performances of the show’s four finalists who wowed the audience and judges with each song they sang on stage.
The journey has been challenging, extremely competitive and each finalist had their own stories to tell; but for certain, EMTV Vocal Fusion has given all contestants a platform for which to launch their music careers and become better in their singing, stage performances, character, appearance and personality – boosting their self confidence and self esteem.
With each week, contestants grew from strength to strength; and improvements seen on stage, vocally and performance-wise, could not go amiss.
The Grand Final’s audience, which comprised of the sponsors of EMTV Vocal Fusion, family and friends of the finalists, representatives of corporate houses and the public and private sector, elite PNG musicians and other notable dignitaries, were able to take part in the voting to decide the winner.
The night also featured performances from PNG’s elite musicians: Radley and Baine Lavaiamat ‘Twin Tribe’ and Papua New Guinea’s number one charting group and hottest acts ‘Jokema’ who performed their hit song “Jix Ambe” and unveiled the 2014 PNG Games song, which they will perform at the opening ceremony in Lae.
Young, energetic Jacob Ilave took out the ultimate prize to become EMTV VOCAL FUSION SEASON 1 WINNER, winning a whooping K50, 000 and a recording stint with Ministry of Sound in Australia plus a year’s supply of Coca Cola, thanks to Coca Cola Amatil PNG.
1ST RUNNER UP Delma Minei got K20, 000 + a year’s worth of Coca Cola & a Colgate hamper plus a recording contract with CHM-Pacific Gold studios; 2ND RUNNER UP Steven Ilave got K10, 000+ a year’s worth of Coca Cola and 3RD RUNNER UP Theresa Miria got K5,000 + a year’s worth of Coca Cola.
