NZGT Semi Final 3: Calista

NZGT Semi Final 3: Calista


Calista is a 14-year-old singer from Tauranga with a maturity in her voice that blew the judges away.

Taking on a huge and soulful song in her audition, “Man’s World” by James Brown, Calista is a born performer.

She has taken singing lessons for four years, recently started learning piano, and enjoys acting.

She is the vocalist for a band called Chase Replica, who made it to the final of The Battle of the Bands last year.

They practice weekly and have performed a number of small gigs, and even enjoyed some radio airplay.

Calista is very focused on succeeding and has big plans for the future, she says; “As soon as I leave school I’d like to go to America or London to study performing arts. I intend to make it big.”
