Joshua’s singing success
Tawa College student Joshua Faletutulu is one of the winners in the national 2011 Westfield 5 Minutes of Fame competition.
The 15-year-old sang Bruno Mars’ The Lazy Song while playing guitar at Westfield Queensgate Shopping Centre, outscoring 85 other contestants to make it to the national final.
Entrants aged 5 to 18 were challenged to grab their ‘‘ fiveminutes of fame’’ by showcasing their singing, dancing or musical abilities on stage.
The talent shows were held at nine Westfield shopping centres throughout the country during the school holidays.
Joshua will now battle it out online against finalists from Auckland, Hamilton and Christchurch to be crowned the overall 5 winner.
All finalists’ videos are available to view and be voted on via the Westfield website. Online voting runs until August 21.
The supreme winner will take home a $1500 tuition grant to help them fine-tune their talent.
