Sarawakian singer wins gold medal at World Performing Arts Championships

Kuching: Taylor Louise, a singer from Sarawak, Malaysia, won the gold medal in the 8-10 years old open category at the 27th World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) held in California, USA.

The 10-year-old also won the WCOPA Junior Open Division Champion with her winning song “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish.

In her gratitude post, she said she was beyond words how grateful she was for God’s love and guidance.

“Guys, I really won the gold medal for Sarawak and Malaysia.


“This is great news for me and motivates me to try harder next time. I have learned a lot and I know that I still have room to improve in terms of my voice and performance on stage.”

“It was an amazing day in my life as a 10-year-old girl from Kuching who loves to sing and eat wontons, and the youngest participant in the vocal competition for Team Malaysia,” she said in a Facebook post.

She also expressed gratitude to her family, coaches and close friends for the love and support she received during the run-up to the tournament.

“I also want to thank everyone who has been here with me and reminded me to keep trying and not give up.

“I love you all. Thank you for being my pillar of strength and support. I couldn’t have made it this far without you all.”

“This gold medal today belongs to you all. I love you all and thank you for your prayers,” she said.

Prior to this, Taylor sang five songs in five different genres: pop, world, Broadway, R&B and soul.

Meanwhile, over the years, Taylor has been hailed as the next generation’s most promising vocal artist, winning numerous singing competitions including Kids’ Got Talent.

With her win, Taylor Swift will have the opportunity to audition for season 20 of America’s Got Talent, which will take place on August 20th of this year.

She also won a silver medal in the Western Folk/Art Song category (ages 9-12) at the online classical singing competition Voices in Bloom.
