Strawberry Fields Vocal Training Academy hosted a show to commemorate the past year on Saturday evening.
“The evening was just for the Strawberry Fields family, but given the demand from outside, we now know that we can host these kinds of events for the public,” said Tina Fraser, owner and founder of Strawberry Fields.
Four Strawberry Fields students recently shared the limelight.
Jillian Gong placed second in the Voice of Namibia Kidz competition, with Annika Henckert hot on her heals in third place. Gong sang her rendition of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” at the singing competition – the same song she performed in Swakopmund on Saturday evening.
She took to the stage with her sister, Lillian, and together they performed a cover of Bruno Mars’ “Grenade”. Jillian also shared the spotlight with Paulina Indombo in their rendition of “I’m Still Standing”, originally by Elton John.
Lin-Mari Coetzee and Jessica Strydom collaborated and performed Billie Eilish’s “Lovely” featuring Khalid. Both passed their auditions for Voice of Namibia earlier this year. According to Fraser, staging will begin in February next year.
The programme concluded with an emotional performance of “Last Christmas”, Wham!’s classic 1984 Christmas hit.
Fraser says that the name for her vocal training academy comes from the Beatles hit “Strawberry Fields Forever”.
