QSNCC, Klong Toey – After a busy day of performances, Wells added to its growing list of onstage achievements by capturing FIRST PLACE (along with a new IPHONE 4 worth B28,000!) at the Thailand International Education Expo (TIEE) Karaoke Singing Competition held on Saturday at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center. Akhil Shanishetti, Grade 8, took the stage with his rendition of “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz, impressing the judges with his showmanship and strong stage presence. Despite a number of impressive performances by 16 other singers, hailing from international schools across Bangkok, Akhil scored just enough points to edge out the competition.
Also taking the stage along with Akhil were Katria Clark (Gr. 7), Jaspriya Narula (Gr. 9), and Amira Lukens (Gr. 9).
Earlier in the day, Wells High School Glee Club also performed at the TIEE, then quickly headed to the IT Gateway at Siam Square for another performance sponsored by the Superstar Academy. The Glee Club opened their performance with a rendition of the pop song “Dynamite” followed by the inspirational ballad “The Climb,” featuring soloist Marin Takahashi (Gr. 9).
