Contest turns up golden oldie
HAZEL Dennis might be 57 years old, but she's still a child at heart.
On Saturday, the South African woman, who is visiting family in Rockhampton, took part in Stockland Rockhampton's Rock Star for a Day program.
The program, which was launched last week, allowed children to record their favourite song and receive a CD copy.
Stockland Rockhampton's marketing manager Kerri Foreman said it had been a wonderful initiative for the youth of Rockhampton.
"We've had many budding stars come into the centre and sing," she said.
After Hazel's daughter and granddaughter got up, Hazel followed their lead, taking to the stage for some holiday fun.
"My daughter Jackie was crazy enough to ask if adults could get up," said Hazel.
"Then she made me do it. I was badly embarrassed but it was really fun."
Hazel said it was great for the children and she was glad she did it.
"Imagine when I take the CD home," she laughed.
