At the moment there is a couple of very proud grandparents in Grenfell. Of course, that could be a description of just about every grandparent in the shire. However – it is not everyone’s grand kids who get to show their singing talents on the famous Australian reality show “Australia’s Got Talent”.
But that is what has happened to well-known locals Arnold Brown and his wife Aloha, who live on the Gooloogong Road in Grenfell.
Their daughter Katherine Menegon, who lives in Canberra, has 17-year-old twin daughters, Brittany and Courtney, who have been singing for their supper for most of their lives. They are fine singers and those in the know predict a big future for both of these very talented and personable young ladies.
The dynamic duo call themselves “PhuZion”. They have already appeared in the popular show where they received rave reviews from the critics and the panel judges. However, the girls are still waiting to hear whether they have made it to the next round of this very competitive talent show.
Apparently the verdict is in and the family knows the results, although they are not allowed to talk about it until the decisions are announced on the show itself. To have made it this far though is an accolade in itself according to all the aficionados who follow the show religiously.
If they do make it to the finals of the show the world will be their oyster. Many of Australia’s finest talents who have graduated from such shows, including Guy Sebastian and the son of Condobolin, Shannon Noll, have gone on to conquer the world of show business and both have enjoyed number one singles in record sales charts and radio playlists. No doubt you tube and other modern entertainment platforms and social media will also enhance the girl’s career in the not-too-distant future as well.
Their next big live performance in front of the public will be a prestigious appearance at the Southern Cross Club in the Canberra suburb of Tuggeranong.
The girls told the Canberra Chronicle in a recent article that they “were extremely excited about appearing at the club”. They told the journal that they will be singing a range of songs from their already vast repertoire that will range from R&B through to soul and then through to pop and rock. Something for everyone, in other words.
The duo is also working up their originals that are a mixture of Soul and Rock and are looking to sharing them with their audiences in the near future.
No doubt Arnold and Aloha and their family are waiting with baited breath for the announcement that could set their two talented granddaughters on the road to a future in the entertainment industry – the hardest industry in the world to break in to.
