After months of preparation, our busy youth volunteers have managed to piece together an event not to be missed by many youths – The Gifted.
The team working behind this project has chosen this name for the singing competition with the intention to highlight to all youths that a gift comes in many forms. In Singapore, a gifted person is usually associated only with an individual who has exceptional capacity of knowledge in areas of academics and one who is highly proficient predominantly in English, Mathematics and Science. This impression has to be unlearned. Our youths need to be consciously aware that everyone of us has gifts. We are all talented in unique ways.
The Gifted Singing Competition aims to uncover young vocal talents and provide them with an opportunity to gather useful experiences related to their interest.
Supplementary to bringing youths of the same interest together, this competition hopes to bring attention to the importance of giving back to the community. We aim to nurture compassionate citizens who are aware of the world of difference they can make for a needy person with just small amount of compassion and attention. Through the community involvement program which we have installed for the finalists of the competition, we would like the youths to be well-aware that everyone of us has the ability to make someone’s world a happier, healthier and safer place to live; Each of us can right a wrong, fill a plate, visit a shut-in, rescue a pet, deliver a meal, tend a public garden, mentor a child or do any action that inspires each of us.
The Gifted is a singing competition open to all Singaporean youths age between 12 to 35.
There are 2 categories for youths of different age groups to compete in; one for teenagers age 12 to 17 years old and one for youths age 18 to 35 years old.
