Strawberry Fields Vocal Training Academy hosted a show on Saturday evening to celebrate the past year.

“This evening was just for the Strawberry Fields family, but given the demand from outside we now know that we can host these kinds of events for the public,” said Tina Fraser, the owner and founder of Strawberry Fields, in her welcoming remarks.

Recently, four Strawberry Fields students found themselves on their way to glory.

Jillian Gong won second place in Voice of Namibia Kidz, with Annika Henckert in third place.

Gong sang her rendition of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ at the Voice of Namibia Kidz and decided to perform the same song on Saturday evening. She also took to the stage with her sister, Lillian Gong, to perform a cover of Bruno Mars’s ‘Grenade’. Jillian also shared the spotlight with Paulina Indombo to perform ‘I’m Still Standing’ by Elton John.

Lin-Mari Coetzee and Jessica Strydom shared the stage for Billie Eilish’s ‘Lovely’ featuring Khalid. Both passed their auditions for Voice of Namibia earlier this year. Staging will begin in February next year, according to Tina Fraser.

The programme concluded with an emotional performance of ‘Last Christmas’, the classic 1984 Christmas hit by Wham!

Fraser says the name of the Strawberry Fields Vocal Training Academy comes from the famous Beatles song ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’.

“It may sound quite random, but it’s not. It was actually inspired by the Beatles,” she explains.
