Chokolaate Centerstage 2019, the most sought after teen talent contest in the country, returns for its 4th edition this year in search of the country’s best young talent. Soloists, duos, or groups, bands, beat boxers and the latest category of beat boxing groups, are all invited to audition on 7 September at the Colombo Innovation Tower, from 9 am onwards. An elite panel of judges will select the finalists who will perform at the grand finale, which will be held on 20 October 2019 at the Bishop’s College Auditorium. 

Shenuka Gunatilleke sang his way to solo glory with a fine rendition of Josh Groban’s You Raise Me Up in last year’s competition, while cousins Malithra and Oshara won the Group category. A young but extremely talented band, JukeBox, walked away with the top prize in the band category, and the inaugural beat box champion was Allister Abeywardene.

This year’s Centerstage 2019 will see the Academy of Design come in as Design & Innovation Partner, while Urban Records will be the Record Label Partner. Nehemiah Consultants returns as the Official PR Partner, while Kiss FM and Real Radio will be the Official Radio Partners for the event. Official Photographer is EHP Studios and Anil Balasuriya Films has also partnered as Official Video Production Partner.
