You Light Up My Life – The Oscar Winners (The Globe, March 7/8) is a montage of memorable songs that received the red carpet treatment at the Academy Awards.

You Light Up My Life, sung by Debbie Boone, won the Oscar in 1977 and is just as popular today. Each song will be introduced by the movie to give the audience the feel of the era and then presented as a classic rendition.

The line-up includes James Bond’s Live And Let Die, Shallow from A Star Is Born and Happy from Despicable Me. Other enduring songs include Never On Sunday, Georgy Girl and The Way We Were.

A line-up of Manawatu’s top singers, with accompaniment and arrangement from Roger Buchanan will showcase the songs at The Globe, Saturday, March 7 at 7.30pm and Sunday, March 8 at 2.30pm.

Can a recent high school graduate match - and beat - a seasoned politician for the people's vote?

If anyone knows them could you please pass on my details to them and encourage them to contact me.
I can be contacted on (06) 9202182 or here, I am usually at home so hell they could even just pop in if they so desire 12 Jenks st.
I know this is a bit unorthodox way to find people but I'm getting a bit desperate.
Thank you and have a good day!
