LAE lass Alang Vinnie Isaac is no stranger to the Digicel Stars auditioning stage.
She appeared in the talent competition for the third time at the Melanesian Hotel in Lae, Morobe, over the weekend.
Of New Ireland parentage, Isaac competed in the two previous auditioning, the first in a group act and then going solo.
She was so nervous that she shied away from the second elimination and laid low until encouraged by her parents, friends and staff of Busu Secondary School (her former school) to give another shot at it.
With all that support, she appeared for the third time, trying not to think about just how tough it was facing the Digicel Stars 3 judges.
Inspired by words of a judge, she turned out for yet another solo.
“Her encouragement to other young people in Lae and across the province is not to give up – if you want something, go and get it,” Alang said.
