Out of thousands of entrants from six East-African countries of naturally musically-gifted people, Sharon finished 6th! Well done Sharon, that’s honestly amazing!
This video shows Sharon’s final performance and “eviction.” It’s great that she ended on a high note! In fact although lots of people think Sharon’s eviction was unfair & untimely, it “turns out” that it may be an amazing thing: apparently the Top 5 have restrictions on what they are allowed to record for the year following the competition. No such restrictions for Sharon!
We really look forward to what the future holds for Sharon & we are encouraging her to pursue this as a possible career. What an amazing gift she’s been given!
She made lots of excellent connections during the competition too – all of the judges (who are either artists or producers) & many of the faculty gave Sharon their contact details. They didn’t do that for everyone in the Top 10. Sharon said Judge Ian (the usually negative one) gave her a big hug and said “If I hear from Julianna [Ugandan judge & artist] that you’re just sitting there and not pursuing this, I’ll be extremely disappointed!” Julianna has been someone Sharon has admired since she was young – Sharon always dreamed of just meeting her. Now Julianna’s number is in Sharon’s phone!
