Just like any talent search contest, participants have to prove that they got the talent to the judges and only the best will walk home with the money.
Talking about proving themselves, over the weekend, gospel singer Julie Mutesasira’s children Ezekiel Mutesasira and Esther Mutesasira didn’t only prove they are talented but also wowed the judges during episode two of the talent showcase
The two extremely talented children wowed the judges as they sang Alexandra Burke’s ‘Hallelujah’ song. Their vocal ability, blend and confidence that they displayed on stage did not only excite the judges but also got them hooked to their performance as they all looked in nothing but awe. As a matter of fact, some doubting Thomases thought the two were just singing along a played record
Midway their performance, one of the judges Gaetano Kaggwa who was overwhelmed by their unmatched talent was forced to stop them in an attempt of getting each to sing alone. Ezekiel,11 went first and impressed the more before Esther, 14 did way better than from the beginning
At the end of their showcase, all the four judges were more than impressed and their endorsements didn’t come from far. They all said yes to the pair.
“I have goosebumps on my body, my entire body is covered in goosebumps” Judge Gaetano said
“Somebody say oh my, those songs you sang take huge lungs, big lungs and you pulled it off” Judge Jeff Koinange said
“I love your personalities, you light up when you are with your sister. Something incredible is about to happen to both of your lives and it’s going to happen on this East Africa’s got talent.” Judge Vanessa Mdee said.
