The event is being supported by the Australian high commission and organised by Global Youth Leadership Nexus.
It consists of three categories namely the young executives, star school and senior which is the icon category.
Jerverson Mauana top performer during the show said that because of the courage he has he can make it through.
“I use to sing in the church and during small activities at home when I was a boy.
“This gives me the courage to build up my confident back in my home land in Makira province and here am I.”
Geoffrey Alacky team leader of the global young leadership said the judges they are judging on certain criteria.
“The judges are done according to the quality of the voice, performance on the stage, song choice and the dressing code of its contestants.”
He said by involving in such activities it helps youths to expose their talents and avoid them from involving in unlawful activities.”
He said the winner will get a recording contract.
Meanwhile the competition will continue within a fortnight.
