Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 17 April, 2019: Deerfields Mall successfully concluded Season 2 of Deerfields Star, a kids’ talent competition open to all Deer Club members ages 4 to 12
years who can show their talents in singing, dancing or playing musical instruments.
8-year-old Peter Anthony Rosalita bested all 109 participants and bagged the trophy for the Grand Champion. 1st Runner-up went to Hannah Koshy while Vishnu Badrinath was awarded 2nd Runner-up. All three winners took home trophies, shopping vouchers and gifts from our participating retailers.
Matthew Reay, Director of Asset Management at Deerfields Mall said: “Well done to all participants for their amazing talent! There were numerous standouts in the line-up, so it was incredibly difficult for our judges to ultimately chose just three winners. It was a delight to experience such inspiring talent and it gives me great joy to report that the UAE won’t be in short supply for future pop stars, dancers and sensational musicians.”
The competition was held in Abu Dhabi from 28 March to 12 April, and took place across three star-studded weekends. Choreographer Hitesh Rajani of Avega Dance Creations and singer/songwriter Carla Saad of As Per Casper had a tough time narrowing down 110 participants to only 10 contenders who performed their best at the grand finale held last 12 April. The exciting night concluded with a presentation ceremony awarding the winner, Peter, with prizes worth over AED 5,000 in gifts and shopping vouchers.
“Since kids were off for the Spring Break, we wanted to give parents an opportunity to encourage their kids to showcase their talent on stage and to inculcate in them confidence and determination. It is also our way to give more to the parents through our loyalty program, Deer Club, that offers great discounts and offers on kids’ stores and entertainment areas.” commented Reay.
All participants took home a total of over AED35,000 worth of shopping and gift vouchers presented by Super Corner Electronics, Burjeel Medical Centre, Krys Optics, Jawhara Jewellery, Lumiere Skin Clinic, Centrepoint, Saraydan Café, Early Learning Centre, Mugg & Bean, Fabyland FEC, Sugar Art Sweets, Icons Coffee Couture, Kidoos Kingdom of Kids, The Yogurt & Chocolate House, Thrill Zone and Alzanjabil.
