A band of home-schooled students from rural Taihape won the open section of Taihape’s Got Talent a week ago.
The five-member band Faith sing mostly Christian influenced music, though they are not affiliated with a particular church.
Faith comprises Jonathon, Jeremiah and Joshua George, Taisha Gorman and Caleb Lazarus.
Father of the George boys Paul George said the group was immensely talented.
“My sons didn’t get it from me. My father was a talented musician but it skipped a generation when it came to me.”
Mr George said the group had written an album and were waiting for it to be recorded.
“But right now their biggest problem is agreeing on what they will be performing at the big Rangitikei final in the Bulls town hall on election night.”
