Eid Got Talent showcase

CHEERED on by hundreds, 30 children took part in the annual Eid Show Got Talent, hosted by Human Appeal Australia, at Bankstown Trotting Club Showground earlier this month.

Omar Abdulwahed from Georges Hall and Sarah Chowdhury from Lakemba, received Highly Commended Awards for performing a ‘nasheed’ and reciting the Quran with so much passion and joy, stealing the hearts of the audience.
Not to be outdone, six-year-old Mariam Nagi from Greenacre, won a brand new laptop in recognition of her talent showcase.
“Every act brought something unique and showcased the wide variety of talent we have in our community, including singing, poetry martial arts and other entertaining performances,” Australian Islamic Education Services (AIES) team leader Hanna El-Zahab said.

“The Eid Show Got Talent is important as it allows contestants to express themselves through a community platform and lets them connect with a wider audience. Some contestants may have never had an opportunity to perform at such a major event.”
With a spectacular balloon and lighting display, the Human Appeal Australia stall was a huge attraction, while its mascot, Orphan Hamoudi, also garnered much attention.
“On behalf of Human Appeal Australia and Sounds of Light Talent Quest Team, we extend our congratulations to all children who performed,” Ms El-Zahab added.
