Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

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.
