As seen in Channel Nine News, Gold Coast, more than 70 residents, staff and guests from Aveo communities across South East Queensland gathered yesterday at Aveo Robina for the second annual Aveo’s Got Talent competition.
15 resident acts performed on the day for the panel of judges and to a full house. Performances included singers, comedians, dancers and instrumentals from age groups 70 through to 97 years old.
The stand-out winners of the day, Rhythmix from Aveo Banora Point, received a standing ovation for their fantastic musical performance of Far Away Places and I Still Call Australia Home. Having placed 2nd in the competition last year, the group were overwhelmed to win this year. The ladies group have been performing in other communities for 4 years.
The Aveo Banora Point singers had their name added to the Aveo’s Got Talent winners shield, joining last years winner. Maureen Tiago, founder of the group says she recruits her ‘partners in crime’ from Aveo Banora Point. The group is still so excited from the day and are so happy to be receiving so much support from their friends, family and residents.
The day was a roaring success and everyone is looking forward to next years competition.
