Timomatic the star attraction at festival
THE star of the 2013 Whitsunday Reef Festival is none other than Timomatic, who will hit the Beach Music stage on the Airlie main street tomorrow, Friday, August 16.
Timomatic (aka Tim Omaji) is a singer, dancer, writer, choreographer, actor and all round entertainer, who rose to fame in the 2011 series of Channel 7’s Australia’s Got Talent (AGT).
The high energy performer has also just hit the nation’s television screens alongside Geri Halliwell, Dawn French and Kyle Sandilands on the judging panel of Channel 9’s 2013 series of AGT.
With his first single of 2013, Parachute, sky-rocketing to number one on the Australian Artist Official ARIA charts, Timomatic is a coup for the Whitsunday Reef Festival and community of Airlie Beach.
“I can’t wait,” he said, when asked if he was looking forward to performing here.
“The Whitsundays and Airlie Beach has always been a little bit of a getaway holiday destination I’ve always wanted to go to, so to have the chance to go there and feel the vibe of the people will be fantastic.”
Whitsunday audiences at tomorrow night’s performance can expect a high energy show full of interaction.
“I feel that I perform with the people instead of to the people,” Timomatic said.
The star also said he felt honoured to be part of the Reef Festival and with two nights in the region he hoped to be able to see some of the sites.
As for any budding AGT auditioners in the Whitsunday community, he had this advice.
“Make sure you really put your best foot forward and don’t take it too seriously. Have fun and do what you can do.”
Timomatic will perform on the Airlie Beach main street at 9pm after the Porters fireworks display. His show will include the hit single Parachute.
