Sam is currently in 1st place with 48,000 votes for his music video entry “I’ll Be There” by Michael Jackson. At the time of this blog entry there were roughly 15 hours left for this leg of voting so with your help Sam should capture this win by tomorrow.
His other videos have not moved much since our last blog. However, this is fine as WonderWorld will only allow one win per month in order to give everyone an equal opportunity. What will be interesting, is to see which one will prove to be the favorite for next month. The MJ tribute is one of my favorites because, recording at home, without the aid of a lot of sound equipment, Sam’s pure and controlled voice really shows forth. Here are the links once more for your voting convenience.
DON’T FORGET TO CONTINUE TO VOTE FOR HIS ALL IMPORTANT RIBBY NOMINATED VIDEO TOO. HE WILL NEED LOTS OF VOTES IN ORDER TO CAPTURE THIS WIN! He currently has only 74,250 and this needs to more than double. Ok fans it’s time to do your part!
Be watching foran exclusive blogwhich will be coming up very shortly. I will be postingSam’s solo performanceof last nights production of “Tommy the Musical”. Sam has been just sensational the last few shows with his voice sounding better than ever! You won’t want to miss this post. Also upcoming will be an interview with director James Wenley and Sam along with some behind the scenes photos.
Sam Verlinden continues to please the audience with every performance as young 10 year old Tommy in the stage production of “Tommy the Musical”. The latest review written by: The New Zealand Performing Arts Review & Directory exclaimed, “Young Tommy is played beautifully by Sam Verlinden, and required to be completely unresponsive even when a balloon is popped in his face”.This blogger is not surprised by this kind of review about Sam, as I was certain that Sam would be a highlight in this production.
It also mentioned; “The orchestra is great, keeping good time and showcasing a variety of skills: one of the best things about this show”.
Sam enjoyed his birthday performance which was Thursday evening. The entire cast helped him celebrate with cake, refreshments and gifts. In addition Sam had two of his close mates Luke (shown left) and Liam (shown in back) attend along with other family members and friends. This picture was taken outside the theater Thursday evening at intermission.
Sam has been entered into the WonderWorld TV Contest.
He has four entries that are currently running all of which should eventually be a winner. Sam won 1st place last month with his entry of “Who’s loven You” by Michael Jackson. This video can still capture votes as it is in the Golden Ribby Award category which gives Sam a chance at $10,000, and possibly a WonderWorld Entertainment contract!
