The success of Saphia Tamalemai in the Contemporary Singing category at the 2014 McDonald’s Sydney Eisteddfod earlier this year deserves an extra handclap.

A newcomer to the Sydney Eisteddfod platform, Saphia, who possesses an incredibly mature voice for an 11-year-old, collected three gold medals at the recent festival. She won the Vocal Performance for her age group and also triumphed in the Country and RB/Gospel events for singers aged 15 years and under, competing against entrants who were up to six years her senior.

The different adjudicators who judged Saphia’s performances, recognised her exceptional talent, and rewarded her with more than 90 marks. Her highest score was 96 and the lowest 92.

Saphia loves to sing and is proud of her efforts, Sydney Eisteddfod looks forward to welcoming her back to its stage in 2015.
