Singer wins

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Porirua singer Tone To­giatama will be shar­ing the stage with his mu­sic idol Stan Walker.

The Aus­tralian Idol win­ner’s Welling­ton con­cert is on Fe­bru­ary 17 at the Welling­ton Opera House, and To­giatama will be the open­ing act.

The 19-year-old won the op­por­tu­nity to sing at the con­cert through an on­line competition, where he posted a recorded au­di­tion on the in­ter­net to get votes. The an­nounce­ment was made on Face­book on Fe­bru­ary 3.

‘‘I’m blown away and hum­bled, and se­cretly cry­ing with hap­pi­ness in­side,’’ said To­giatama.

‘‘[Walker] called me over when I was at Para­chute (mu­sic fes­ti­val) in the week­end, and I had a chat with him. He said he’d been watch­ing my au­di­tion tape heaps and will con­tact me.’’
