The finalists in the Buklod edition of Songs of Faith, Love, and Hope (SOFLAH) from the Ecclesiastical District of Taiwan gave their best performances during the district finals that was held on April 25, 2021.
Family members of the competitors gathered at Zhongli Function Hall in Taoyuan City, Taiwan to give and show support. Other brethren, from their respective homes, also witnessed the event through livestreaming.
The finalists came from the area of Taipei, Taoyuan, Hsinchu, and Taichung. All made the event very special with their magnificent and melodious voice that enthralled the audience.
The judges scored the contestants based on voice quality, rhythm, vocal expression, and stage presence. These were then tallied and averaged later during the competition.
Brethren from the Taichung area cheered with joy as Zerna Sabado, from the Local Congregation of Tanzi, was declared the champion. “My inspiration in singing in competitions such as this is my family, my husband, and love ones,” said Zerna.
Brother Julius Caezar Santiago, district CFO overseer, supervised the activity and thanked the Church Administration for giving inspiration to the brethren to become stronger in the faith. ― With reports from INC News Section
