In tune for semi fi­nal

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Two Toko­roa woman have proven their singing prow­ess on Maori Tele­vi­sion’s Ho­mai te Pakipaki and need your sup­port.

Ab­bie Leigh and Brit­tany Teoko­tai won their re­spec­tive sec­tions on the pop­u­lar singing show and are gear­ing up for the semi­fi­nals.

Both singers won be­cause they re­ceived the most votes through tex­ting on the night.

Ab­bie and Brit­tany are ask­ing res­i­dents to show their sup­port through text.

‘‘This is our first time on the show,‘‘ Ab­bie said. ‘‘I think it would be fan­tas­tic to get as much Toko­roa peo­ple through to the fi­nals,’’ she said.

The grand fi­nal prize is worth $10,000, and both women have ideas on what they would spend the money on.

‘‘I would spend it on my up com­ing wed­ding,’’ Brit­tany said, ‘‘My part­ner and I got en­gaged re­cently and it would be nice to not have to worry about the fi­nan­cial strain of wed­dings.’’

Ab­bie would like to fin­ish off her demo record­ing.

‘‘It is so ex­pen­sive to do a demo.

Singing is my sec­ond big­gest pas­sion be­hind my son. I would love to fin­ish off my demo and make it in the mu­sic in­dus­try.’’

Ab­bie will ap­pear in the first semi fi­nal heat on Fri­day with Brit­tany and fel­low Toko­roa fi­nal­ist Isaac Marsh hit­ting the stage in the same semi fi­nal heat on Oc­to­ber 5.

To vote, watch Ho­mai te Pakipaki from this Fri­day Maori Tele­vi­sion start­ing at 8.30pm.

VOICES OF AN­GELS: Toko­roa’s Brit­tany Teoko­tai and Ab­bie Leigh have sung their way to the semi fi­nals of Ho­mai te Pakipaki, a singing show on Maori Tele­vi­sion.
