Filipinos have produced the best singers in the world such as the Broadway Diva Lea Salonga, American Idol 2012 first runner-up Jessica Sanchez, Bruno Mars, and a long list of YouTube sensations—which proved to be a threat to other Asian singing wannabes; thus TV5 have capitalized on such fact by mounting its newest and biggest nationwide singing competition titled ‘RisingStars Philippines’ open to all Filipinos, ages 13 years old and above individuals who can ‘really’ sing.
Since Filipinos are naturally better in singing, and it’s because singing in public is culturally acceptable, too–this singing tilt predicts to be more effective in discovering raw and untapped singing talents in the country with equal chances of making a name in the said industry.
If existing singing tilts have become too stringent in its selection process, TV5 has made it easy and hassle-free for any ordinary Filipino who can carry a tune and can sing along any karaoke song and can also belt like any other professional singing artists. Through ‘RisingStars’ long queues and hours of auditioning process have been eliminated via its RisingStars Mobile Applications for Android phones and its mobile Recording Booths.
Currently, singing star hopefuls can go to TriNoma Mall in Quezon City, which began on January 14th till the 22nd.
There will be a three-phase for the said competition:
Voting Period from January 23-27; Live Screening and Semi-Finals on January 29; and Live Singing Competition is on February 1.
The said show will be hosted by Filipino singer-songwriter, television personality and is currently the president of Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-Aawit (OPM) – Ogie Alcasid and fourth runner-up in Miss Universe 2010 – Venus Raj, along with Survivor Philippines castaway and host – Mico Aytona.
