South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

A group of Toko­roa singers has con­tin­ued the town’s il­lus­tri­ous rep­u­ta­tion for pro­duc­ing gifted singers.

Dur­ing Labour Week­end the 2012 NZ Star Awards were held in Tau­ranga and once again Toko­roa singers dom­i­nated.

Singer Sum­mer Thomp­son, who rep­re­sented Forest­land Va­ri­ety Mu­sic Club, re­ceived the high­est-scor­ing non-fi­nal­ist tro­phy, and Luana Karl won the over-18 Coun­try Rock sec­tion.

Also rep­re­sent­ing Forest­land Va­ri­ety Mu­sic Club, Keinan Ngapo placed run­nerup in the Male Solo.

The trio of Joshua Gray, Bar­bara Man­ning and Mr Ngapo com­bined to cre­ate Unity and won the Open Group/Duo sec­tion and were also over­all win­ners of the Star Award.

The trio’s suc­cess means they are in­vited to com­pete in the NZCMA En­ter­tainer of the Year awards in Ro­torua next year.
