- Hello Everybody,
Just a quick note to let
you know about our recent trip to the Charters Towers Country
Kudos to the organising committee for putting on such a
great show. Although it was a huge event logistically, it seemed
to be well planned and executed. The flow of the competition was
kept really smooth by allowing competitors to perform as soon as
they arrive , even if it wasn't their turn yet. This enabled the
competitors to take part in more events without having to be
rushed off their feet. Hats off to a well organised event.
Kiara had a great time and so did I. Following are the results:
KIARA Juvenile vocal - first, juvenile country gospel- first,
juvenile bush ballad -first, juvenile country rock -second,
overall juvenile winner, songwriting- second place( God's Gift).
Jude - songwriting third place ( She Taught Me To Pray).
Once again a big thank you to the organising committee of the
Charters Towers Country Music Festival. Special thanks to Lyn Vera
for all her help and timely correspondence.

Rodrigues was an avid student at this year’s Tamworth Camerata – the
junior country music school for performers aged 18 years and younger.
When the petite package of dynamite returned home to Mackay,
Queensland, she was full of excitement, talking about her experiences,
learning from some of the best tutors and musicians in the country
music industry – and already planning her application for Camerata
2007. Kiara was part of the Tex Morton team and her team leader was
none other than Merelyn Carter of “Carter and Carter”.
Kiara had the privilege of being coached by famous artists such as
Gina Jeffries, David Carter, Adam Harvey, Brad Bergen and the renowned
song writer Roger Corbett. While at Camerata, Kiara has picked up a
whole heap of performing skills which were very noticeable in her
outstanding winning performances at the Sarina Country Music Festival.
Besides picking up skills, Kiara has had the pleasure of making new
friends in the country music circle and as the youngest ever Camerata
student was interviewed on channel seven in Tamworth and performed
with the group on channel nine also in Tamworth.. People in the
country music industry have expressed great hopes for this little
performer and if her recent achievements are any indication, they are
Sincere thanks go to Kiara’s sponsors Axiom Entertainment and also to
Joan Douglas, Greg Williams, Jim Haynes and the two house mums Rosie
Adsett and Merryl Davis who devoted their precious time in doing the
hard yards required to make CAMERATA a success.
