THE PNGNRL Bid is not all about rugby league but also exposing talented Papua New Guineans in other aspects of life.
Now under the ‘800 Tribes, One Voice’ theme the Bid is now moving forward to start a party.
Yesterday marked another milestone for the PNGNRL Bid in taking the message of PNG’s rich culture across to the international stage with the launching of the Bid’s own “Singsing Tribe.
And the search is on to find best of PNG talent with the full endorsement of PNGNRL Bid board and management, sponsors Coca-Cola Amatil Ltd, INSPAC, and Bid deputy chairman and NCD Governor Powes Parkop.
Young women and men are invited to audition next month, to be chosen to form the group which is set to become the most popular singing and dance entertainment group in PNG.
The Bid’s “cheer leaders” will perform at special events throughout PNG and have an opportunity to be seen internationally with plans to record their own album and TV show.
According to sponsors and organisers, it is a great chance for young Papua New Guineans to show their talent to the NRL and corporate partners that rugby league is about having fun which involves the whole community in singing and dancing.
PNG’s foremost music DJ and well known identity Allen “AK-47” Kedea is the artistic programme leader and on stage for the Singsing Tribe.
Kedea will conduct auditions next month selecting talent to form the 15-member group and a 50 strong back up choir.
“There is so much musical and artistic talent in PNG. I am thrilled to be a part of developing and showcasing this talent with the PNGNRL Bid,” Kedea said.
Parkop said that young people were future of PNG and it was another great example of young people leading the way to enrich community life and show a positive image of PNG to the NRL and the world.
