AUSTIN Lurring, who made the top 13 contestants in the national singing competition The Voice SA earlier this year, and is a former Carter High School pupil, will return to the school on Friday for Carter’s Got Talent.

Lurring, who honed his skills even before­ singing in the school choir in Grade 9, is the guest artist in Carter High’s show that began in 2014 to give pupils the platform to showcase their talent.

This year the show will host poetry, rapping­, drama performances, singing, playing musical instruments and dance.

Three judges will choose the top three performances and lots of prizes are up for grabs.

“Austin matriculated from Carter High School in 2013 and we are excited to have him back with us at the talent show,” said Lisa Ellis, marketing manager at the school.

Described by many as a lovable, fun and humble young man, Lurring was hesitant to audition after not making it to Idols, but thanks to the encouragement of a friend, he auditioned for The Voice SA.

Lurring, who was on #TeamLira, said the highlights on the show included working­ with the coaches and a professional band, gaining stage experience, and choosing performance clothing to suit a song.

“I’ve learnt so much about the industry and being a performer,” he said.

Lurring’s advice to aspiring musicians is to follow their passion.

“Stay humble and be open-minded, as you can learn from all kinds of music.

“This is the way you grow and this keeps your passion alive,” he said.

Catch Lurring in Carter’s Got Talent at Carter High School’s Hall on Friday at 6 pm.

Tickets are R35 each, available from school’s cash office.
