E-Networks came out with a bang with Season Two of the Indian Singing Competition, Emerging Voices and architect of the show, Managing Director Vishok Persaud during a recent televised interview with host of the show Jared Kissoon shared his vision of bringing quality local talent to Guyana.
Mr. Persaud said the company as a major cable provider discovered that people were not only interested in the foreign shows but quality local content as well and it’s quest to satisfy that thirst Emerging Voices was birthed.
He explained that the company kept innovating during Season One, hence Season Two began with a bigger bang.
And take it to the next level they did, as experts were brought in to ensure the talent show captured a larger target group with a product of international entertainment standards.
While the inclusion of Trinidad sensation Savita Singh created quite a stir locally, the Managing Director explained that the concept of reaching out to the diaspora was there from the inception.
In hindsight he is happy that the thinkers went with the dramatic creative director, as the drama and twist invoke emotions making the show into something extraordinary and at the end, Persaud said E-Networks is happy with the product which he is confident will be even bigger come next season.
Producers promised excellent entertainment, surprises and quality production and they continue to deliver and contestants are given the opportunity to be trained by judges Purnash Durga Prasad and Jeffrey Iqbal, who have both been on the international scene and bring a wealth of experience to the show.
Thirteen contestants were selected for the competition following intense auditions from a pool of over a hundred.
Dr. Vindhya Persaud, who is actively involved in the local talent arena is also a judge on the show and as the only female at the judges’ table, she brings exuberance and beauty to the Competition.
Six contestants made it through to the semi-finals but as was expected only three emerged to the finals which would be aired this Friday.
