Sabah child magician is tops at HK event
Published on: Friday, September 19, 2014
KOTA KINABALU: Sabah's fledgling child magician, Sylvia Voo Min Ying never ceases to shine in the international arena.
With her solo magic performance, the eight-year-old girl beat four other finalists to emerge champion in the Supernova (Individual) category of the Hong Kong Talent Star Stage Kids 2014 last Sunday. Her pigeon-producing trick won the hearts of the judges in the finals of the Under 12 Talent Competition held at the Hong Kong Stadium in MacPherson, Mongkok.
Voo was among 24 finalists from seven countries – UK, Hong Kong, Japan, Germany, India, Thailand and Malaysia – who vied for the top spot in the five respective categories.
These were Supernova (Individual), Rising Stars (Group), Shining Stars (Group), Nova (Individual) and Hypernova (Individual).
In 2012, she was the first runner-up in the 3rd Hong Kong Talent Star Contest held at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
According to Voo's mother, Yenny Lo, 31, her daughter was invited to participate in the Hong Kong Talent Star Stage Kids 2014 without having to go through the audition and preliminary contest unlike other participants.
The invitation was based on the girl's excellent magic performance at the 3rd Hong Kong Talent Star Contest.
"We were pleasantly surprised to receive an email from the organisers with an offer for my child to enter the final round directly. Registration fees were also waived. It was too good to refuse," Lo said.
Last year, Voo also walked away with the championship title at the Malaysia International Magic Extravaganza 2012 held in Kuala Lumpur.
