Tameaka aims to please audiences at Callaghan Park
TAMEAKA Powell is so dedicated to making sure her audience is having a good time that she has sung for three hours straight.
"When everyone's up having a good time, I don't like to stop them, and I feed off their energy," the former The Voice contestant told Pulse yesterday.
The 30-year-old mother of three made it through to the live shows during the last season and said she'd had a great response from her hometown of Emerald since returning.
But tomorrow night she'll take to the stage for the first time in Rockhampton for the 2YO Capricornia Yearling Sales Breeders Plate Race Day at Callaghan Park.
"I'm really excited, I haven't actually been out there before so I'm hoping it's something different," she said.
"I'm actually playing at the Clermont races next weekend as well."
On Team Madden during her time on the singing talent show, Tameaka said reflecting on the experience still felt surreal.
"Since then I've been doing a lot of weddings and functions and events, so the local community and surrounding areas have been amazing and really supportive," she said.
"I am still writing at the moment and will get into the recording studio over the next couple of months. But I can't decide which songs I want to record yet. I change my mind on them almost every day.
"My sound gets compared to Stevie Nicks/Jewel a lot, and I was really influenced by them growing up.
"I guess I sound a bit like modern country."
Tameaka's plans are to record and continue building on performing across Central Queensland.
