If you have not yet bought your tickets for the Voices concert...well, it's too late. The tickets for the remaining performances have been snapped up. But you can still watch it live on Sunday on NET TV.

Roger Calleja, chairman of the organising committee, said the committee had decided to opt for the live transmission of the final concert.

One of the highlights of this year's concert are three refugees from Congo. The voices of Erick Nyandu, Pitchen Paul and Jacky Elumbu sent shivers down many a spine with their interpretation of Elton John's He Lives In You.

Raquela Dalli Gonzi's voice reverberated in her interpretation of Christina Aguilera's The Voice Within. The same can be said for Edward Camilleri and Rachel Fabri's interpretation of Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman's Time To Say Goodbye -incessant applause followed.

The crowd also responded well to Jackie Pace Delicata and Louisa Wirth, who sang Anastasia's Left Outside Alone. Andre Portelli roused the Mediterannean Conference Centre with Antonello Venditti's In Questo Mondo Di Ladri.

A total of 23 songs are being interpreted, 14 of which involve soloists or duos backed by the choir. The rest are sung by the entire choir. The 10-man band, director Martina Caruana and choir directors Joseph Cachia and Tony Vella, together with presenters Josef Bonello and Ronnie, made the event a very smooth and pleasurable one.
