Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 12th 2008
12 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 13, 2008 MB NEWS Local lad sings David Agius and Stevie Wonder sing a duet at Acer Arena. IMAGINE singing a duet with Stevie Won- der in front of 12,000 people. For Lidcombe's David Agius, that dream came true last month when he won a competition to ''Sing With Stevie''. The 25-year-old full-time musician en- tered a competition organised by Dainty Entertainment and 101.7 WSFM to coincide with Wonder's Acer Arena shows in October. Contestants were asked to submit an MP3 of themselves singing a Wonder song. Agius's version of Superstition won the public vote. ''I was listening at home on the radio and they said they'd announce the winner in 10 minutes,'' he said. ''When they said my name, I thought, ''Oh my God''. Agius regularly performs at pubs and clubs around Sydney but he said he was ''very nervous'' at the thought of perform- ing in Acer Arena. ''Walking on to the stage and seeing how big the audience was, that's what really hit me,'' said the singer who dueted with the blind singer on the song, I Wish. ''Before I knew it I was standing next to Stevie Wonder, it was very surreal. ''It went so quickly. The crowd started chanting my name when we finished.'' Backstage afterwards Wonder told Agius he had ''a very cool voice''. The experience has been an inspiration to the young singer whose dream is to record a country rock album of his own songs. ''I'd like to say a big thank-you to everyone who voted for me,'' he said. ''It's something I can tell the grandchildren.'' Mckimms Pharmacy 188 Burwood Road, Burwood 2134 Ph.
