Waetford wins singing scholarship
If you were with the Springbok team arriving in Dunedin this morning to prepare for the weekend encounter with the All Blacks, you would hear a particularly professional rendering of their national anthem.
The singer is Kawiti Waetford, who is studying at the University of Otago.
Not for long though – the 21-year-old baritone was this week named the first winner of the Kiri Te Kanawa Scholarship, which gives him $15,000 towards international study.
He hopes to continue his studies in Europe.
