TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 16, 2007) - "Kgomotso Tsatsi (stage name KG) from Canada has reached the finals in the USA World Showcase.

KG was selected from over 40,000 auditions and competed in The USA World Showcase, a talent competition held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. KG won a trophy in acting Monologue. She won a similar trophy in Florida in 2006.

KG has been singing since before she could talk. At the age of 16, KG decided to participate in the South African Idol competition. After a spine-chilling performance of Alanis Morisette's "Uninvited" she wowed the judges and went on to compete in the finals.

At Johannesburg's prestigious Roedean School, she conquered lead roles in musicals such as My Fair Lady, winning awards and continuing to tackle serious plays. KG mostly concentrated on plays that dealt with social issues within South Africa's turbulent history. KG admits; " Roedean really gave me the chance to grow as a performer. I have learnt to translate human emotion, not only into my acting, but my music as well"

KG has been performing at various venues in Toronto. She had recently won The Beat 91.5 FM's "Rhythm of the Future" competition in Canada. This competition will give her a chance to record a song with world renowned producers like Marcus Kane and Socrates. Socrates is also the producer for Nelly Furtado. This aspiring artist has also competed in the Honey Jam competition. KG says: " Its a pretty well known competition simply because that's where Nelly Furtado was discovered".
