The World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA), commonly referred to as the “Olympics of the Performing Arts” is a international prestigious event held in Hollywood (Los Angeles, California) and is open to 40 different countries with talents ranging from Singing, Acting, Dancing, Modelling and Instrumentalists.
This year will be the 17th year that this event is running.
For 2013, WCOPA Singapore has shortlisted 12 outstanding talents to represent Team Singapore in various categories at the WCOPA in July 2013 and I am really excited to feature one of them on my blog!
Jules Jumari has always been attracted to the bright lights of the stage like a moth to a flame. Having been performing since the tender age of 9, he has found his calling in the world of entertainment.
Throughout his educational years, he had been involved in numerous school productions including Flowers In the Desert, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, and Grease! Jules was also one of the original cast members for Sentosa’s Multi Million Dollar Spectacular ” Songs of the Sea” where he performed nightly to a 2500 strong crowd.
His experience spans musical theatre, acting as well as acapella. As part of local Acapella band ” Juz B”, Jules takes on the part of male Soprano of which is highly unheard of. The band performs regularly on local shores as well as in the Asian region.
He hopes to inspire the young ones to follow their dreams, despite all odds.
Hear him Sing:
1. Skyfall JulesRawCover + MPAC Band (Adele’s Skyfall Cover by Jules Jumari)
2. Halo Acoustic Cover – Jules Jumari
He’s really good isn’t he?
I was most impressed with his Skyfall cover because not many guys can sing like him. And oh boy, it is indeed an honor for me to have known him as a schoolmate back in our Temasek Polytechnic days(: Oh and if you were wondering why he looks familiar – he’s part of the band, Juz-B who entered the Channel U’s SuperBand a couple of years back. And yes, he can sing Mandarin songs! Super multi talented no?
Anyway, there will be a showcase for the Team Singapore WCOPA representatives on 9th March 2013 at the Mediacorp TV Theatre. Tickets are at $30 each.
If you’re keen to show your support, PM Jules on Facebook HERE by 3rd March 2013!
