Stop and stare, that’s what the 10 finalists of “Hunting for New Voices” made the crowd at Berjaya Times Square do last weekend.
Belting out amazing vocals and putting on their best stage persona, 10 hopefuls took to the stage on Saturday evening for the chance to win cash prizes as well as the coveted Rock Zone tickets for the upcoming OneRepublic Live in Malaysia 2018 concert.

After careful deliberation, judges Mr. Hendrick Huang, Managing Director of WGW Entertainment, Mr. Kenny Ong, Managing Director of Universal Music Singapore and Malaysia, and Ms. Yi Jun (who’s had experience participating in the World Championship of Performing Arts held at Long Beach, California) picked Ullyseus, Affan and Pitt Sarmon as the top three winners.

This was great news to the enthusiastic OneRepublic fans since Mr. Kenny Ong mentioned during the earlier press conference that fans in the Rock Zone have a higher chance of being picked to perform onstage with OneRepublic (as the band tends to pick a lucky fan from the crowd to perform with them) during the concert.
