RISING gospel musician Sarah Bonne shrugged off stiff competition from nine other contestants to clinch an investment package into her music career equivalent to US$1 500 and a video recording gig at the Shoko Festival as the winner of the inaugural Voice to Represent (Voice2Rep) competition held on Wednesday, in Harare. By Kennedy Nyavaya.

The Voice2Rep is a new annual programme under Magamba Network’s Arts for Change initiative in conjunction with Accountability Lab that supports the extensive amplification of youthful voices as well as participation in national processes through music.

In October, 10 finalists were chosen from over 300 entries to go through mentorship with established musicians, producers and other arts stakeholders.
