Published July 6, 2012 by aquahlekkergarla

A while ago a friend of mine invited me to a music competition and this competition was sponsored by the President Of Botswana,my friend’s choir scooped first position and imagine it was their first time to take part into these competitions am so proud of them.This music competition is choral kinder of Music,i loved different kinds of attires that the groups wore…it was a beautiful day music lovers were going one direction,Choir members not eating anything sweet for several days before the competition to avoid scratching their voices, i think they where even drinking cooking oil instead of water to smoothen the pipe and the voice box lol..am kidding am not sure but at my elementary school we were given cooking oil and half cooked maize to eat,we were told they made our voices to come out nicely we were not allowed to eat sweets and if you happened to eat them a rod was going to cross your butt lol..wow elementary memories hey…anyway lets check the pictures…The winners of the competition… i HEART their colorful attire

                     Me and the guys from another choir

                                                                                                        Me and the boys

This guy is my older brother’s friend and he was in a choir too singing,pity my brother does not have interest,funny because my dad used to sing choral music i dnt know why he is not interest i thought boy child must copy dad aish…anyway am sorry for some photos with bad quality its because i was a bit far at the back and using both my phone and my camera…..
