Every time you think that they can’t possibly outdo themselves, another Operatunity Daytime Concert does just that.
They never cease to surprise and entertain. It is easy to see that The Epiphanies—the fabulous trio of Rebecca Wright, Sharon Emirali and Gail Tipene – had fun putting the Divas Through the Decades show together.
The 60s girl group filled the hall with beautiful harmony, melody, rhythm and great timing at Operatunity’s Daytime Concert series held recently at St Columba Church.
Accompanied by the well-experienced musicians in the band comprising Grant Winterburn, Mike Booth and Bruce French, the concert celebrated iconic singers like Connie Francis, Doris Day, Barbra Streisand and Aretha Franklin – to name a few.
Male singers and entertainers Bonaventure Allan Moetaua and Tainui Kuru also deserve a special mention as they kept the tempo and the mood upbeat.
From the costume changes to light banter, with plenty of humour thrown in and great choreography, all contributed towards the concert being an absolute must-see.
Rebecca Wright was outstanding on stage, accompanied by the other two talented divas, she had the audience swaying to foot-tapping music.
You would have never guessed that Rebecca had been up all night with a five-month-old baby and then stepped onto the stage to put up a spectacular performance the next morning, belting out numbers like Summertime, Diamonds are a Girl’s best friend and I got you babe.
The concert ended on a high note with an all time favourite Abba medley that had the audience sing along before they grabbed a free sandwich and cake on their way home.
