International music contest launched in Zim

BY ZBC Reporter
A new international reality show dubbed ‘Amazing voices’ whose aim is to nurture talent has been launched in Harare.
The music reality contest which was launched this Friday comes at a time when abundant talent is going unnoticed due to lack of exposure.

An opportunity has been presented for talented singers from four countries including Zimbabwe to showcase their talent while also battling it out for prize money of 100 thousand US Dollars.

One of the organisers of the competition, Lillian Mbayiwa said the show is an opportunity for untapped talent to launch musical careers.

“Amazing Voices will not only launch careers for talents that otherwise would not have been able to get an opportunity to showcase their talent on such a stage. This is only the beginning and our aim is to engage with audiences across Africa and at the same time give them quality insurance and banking services,” said Mbayiwa.

Three groups that were selected through auditions held in Harare and Bulawayo will represent the country in gospel, pop and R&B music genres as they compete with other contestants from Ghana, Kenya, and South Africa.

The first episode of the show will be aired on DSTV this Sunday.
