Edgar Lapurga and Marlynn with Cezka at Brisbane airport MAASIN CITY – Dongon village native Cezka Maris Lapurga, who was chosen to write and record songs in LA along with 15 other young Australians has left Brisbane, Australia to Los Angeles in California on Wednesday.

Edgar Lapurga, Cezka’s father, said he and his family sent her off in Brisbane to Sydney where the singer would meet her group in going to LA.

Lapurga said they will start recording their written songs on September 22 and would be staying in Best Western Raffles Inn and Suites in Anahein and in Best Western Hollywood Plaza in Hollywood area.

Now based in Australia, she made her townmates proud.

Cezka with her siblings Cezka Mariz Lapurga, 18, is the only Filipino among 15 teenagers from Australia selected by the Australian Institute for Performing Arts (AIPA) to record an eight-track album in Los Angeles, California this September.

She didn’t expect to make it when she applied for the 2011 Singer Songwriter Project Los Angeles in Sydney.

Jump for joy

But she literally jumped for joy when she read the e-mail from the director of the organizing talent management that she had been accepted.

 

“Both the team in LA and Australia were really impressed with your tracks and would like to offer you a place in the cast…” wrote Marg Haynes, AIPA Director for International Programmes & Talent Development, in his e-mail.

This meant that Cezka would be part of the select group that would write songs for the album in Sydney and then go to LA in September to rehearse and record an original album, which will then be mastered in London. (See previous story)
