'I'm a normal Islander kid that just wants to pass school' - Hoseah Partsch won't put down books ahead of Boy George tour




Kiwi-born singer Hoseah Partsch definitely had his priorities in check when reacting to the career-changing news he would be off to tour with Boy George.

While ecstatic at the touring announcement, the 18-year-old runner up on The Voice Australia said to the Nine News breakfast show, his final year of school is still firmly on his mind.

"People say I'm popular at school, but honestly I'm a normal Islander kid that just wants to pass school, I guess," Partsch said.

"I'm like low-key nervous, but I'm just going to pray to God he'll give me the strength just to do what I love to do, which is to sing. I hope Australia is ready."

Partsch narrowly missed out to winner Judah Kelly on The Voice Australia earlier this month, and the $100,000 prize money and contract with Universal that came with it.

But he seems to be getting over it fine.

"It is so surreal. Honestly I'm so thankful for this opportunity that Boy has given me and I can't wait to see him again," Partsch said.

"I've never met Culture Club before but I can't wait."
