Meet Sade: your next favourite Kiwi singing sensation


New Zealand’s next singing sensation could be an Auckland teenager who will soon be jetting off to LA to take part in a prestigious Music Immersive program after beating 1400 contestants from around the world for a spot.

Talented singer Sade Elle Gemmell will be getting trained by the best coaches, networking with key decision makers in the industry, and connecting with other working musicians while in LA. Sade is thrilled to have won this once in a lifetime opportunity to get an insight into the music industry and hone her skills with the best of the best.

The StarNow Music Immersive competition kicked off in March, offering contestants a chance to attend the prestigious Music Immersive Program run by Hollywood Immersive. With over 1400 entries this was one of our biggest Music Immersive competitions ever.

All the finalists were hand-picked based on their StarNow profiles, and then our incredible panel of judges viewed each finalist’s music videos before picking the best one. This year the incredible panel of judges included the legendary ‘Commissioner’ Gordon Williams, whose credits include Joss Stone’s multi-platinum ‘Mind, Body and Soul’, Steven Memel (celebrity voice and performance coach on the USA hit show The Voice) and the iconic Nashville producer Michael Flanders.

The voting was unanimous with the winner of StarNow Music Immersive 2014 being announced as New Zealand singer Sade Elle Gemmell.

Lilly Dawson, founder and director of Hollywood Immersive says “We're thrilled to announce Sade Elle Gemmell as the winner of the StarNow and Music Immersive competition! The competition was fierce with some awesome performers from all around the world, making it a very tough decision. Sade has an exceptional voice, a striking look and huge potential to take her career all the way. We look forward to being able to work with her in LA to develop and showcase her talent.”

Sade is a very talented young New Zealand singer who has already reached the Top 20 in Simon Cowell’s Global You Generation Search and also was an X Factor NZ Wildcard finalist in 2013. She has been singing since she was 12 years old and her inspirations include Etta James, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera and Rhianna.

The total prize package includes flights to LA, accommodation, entry to the Music Immersive Program, a 6 month Elite membership to HIO (Hollywood Immersive Online) and a lifetime StarNow membership!
