Sam Verlinden performing in Auckland’s favored event!

Santa Sam

Coca Cola in the ParkChristmas is right around the corner and so is the annual Christmas in the Park event to be held in Auckland on December 12th.

Sam Verlinden has been rehearsing and getting ready to showcase his marvelous singing talent which is sure to please the large crowd expected to attend.  The event will be televised and recorded so this blogger can cover the post reporting for all of you.
Sam who just turned 12 this past month, is the youngest performer named for this event.  This is quite an honor for Sam, but has not come to him without much work and effort.
Sam continues to impress with his latest performances in the musicals “Oliver” and “Tommy”.  Watching and listening to Sam is pure joy and I know that the same way he has made his country proud at past contests, he will make the producers proud to have chosen him for this event.

At the end of the month Sam will continue to be a crowd pleaser as he performs with some of the other boys who were in Oliver.

“The Oliver Boys”, as they are so aptly named, will be singing songs from the musical throughout the city. This will be a real treat for those who were unable to catch the musical which ran for four weeks in Auckland at the SkyCity theater.
If you missed the Nov. 8th post you will want to go back and read all about these fine young men and watch the video clips of their performance on stage.

I’m not sure what Sam has planned yet for 2010, but if he is half as busy as he was this year we are in for a real exciting ride.  Be sure to visit Sam’s Website and wish him a Merry Christmas.  Girl’s you don’t want to miss his picture there!

Christmas in the Park program

Sam Verlinden

has landed a spot once again as one of the great talents who will be performing on that memorable evening.

When asked about his being chosen again for this year’s Concert, Sam replied,“I feel very lucky as it’s most young singers dream to perform at Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park.”

Sam your too modest! You deserve to be there every year, as your ability to sing and perform just keeps getting better with each year that passes. 

While Sam is considered not quite a teen due to his just turning 12 years of age this month, his last stage director said; “Sam is more mature than most of his adult counterparts!
