From Morning Report, 8:41 am on 30 July 2018

Bass baritone singer Joel Amosa won the 2018 Lexus Song Quest grand final on Saturday night. His victory is the fifth time in 10 years that a New Zealander of Samoan heritage has won the competition.

It's New Zealand's most prestigious competition for singers and an award that has launched the careers of some of the country's most famous opera singers - Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and Dame Malvina Major.

Joel Amosa tells Susie Ferguson about learning to sing at school, and what he's aiming for next.
