On Thursday Feb 20th, 2014, Kaya capped off an evening of entertainment at Ecole Alpha Secondary by playing guitar and singing Valerie by Amy Winehouse.
The Star Search lineup included many talented students singing, playing musical instruments, and dancing. Several of the performances featured original compositions.
Star Search was put on by Alpha’s Offence, FPAC and Music Council. This was a night of fundraising for a great cause – The KidSafe Project Society. KidSafe offers safety, nutritious meals, emotional support and positive activities aimed at helping kids build confidence and self-esteem.
The most famous of the Star Search judges was Osric Chau, who many of the students know as Kevin Tran from the Supernatural TV Series. You can read more about Osric on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1859543/
The judges had a very difficult decision to make, but ultimately decided on:
3rd place – Nicole Heidema and Annika Lee-Wardell
2nd place – Joshua Fernandez
1st place – Kaya Kurz
Joshua and Kaya will move on to the Burnaby District talent competition which will be held at Michael J. Fox Theatre on April 23, 2014.
