I often get this question from my non-Filipino friends, 'Why are Filipinos good singers?'
Obviously, the world music scene is not dominated by Filipinos. But I try to understand why we're often being recognized in this field. In Idol, X-Factor, Got Talent and in almost all the singest contests in the world, there's always one or many with Filipino lineage that stand out.
In the country, you'll find singing competitions everywhere, literally. It's a fixture on every TV network. We've got franchises of The Voice of the Philippines, Philippine/Pinoy Idol, Pilipinas Got Talent, X-Factor Philippines and Pinoy Dream Academy to name some.
I think it goes beyond the obvious talent. The passion to express emotions and to connect to the hearts of listeners make Filipinos good in singing.
Both Sheryn Regis and Angeline Quinto exemplify this passion. They
are just 2 of many successful artists today that started their careers in singing competitions. They do not just showcase their world-class vocal talents, they also inspire talented young ones that dreams come true.
Sheryn and Angeline will share the stage this Friday, 4th April, for the Ultimate Divas Live in Concert. Show starts at 8pm at Al Nasr Leisureland Ice Skating Rink in Oud Metha, Dubai.
Tickets are available at AED50 (Regular), AED90 (VIP) and AED110 (VVIP) denominations. You may call 0509001897 or 0562616958 for ticket reservation and further inquiries.
Sheryn, known as the Crystal Voice of Asia, was a grand finalist in Birit Baby in Eat Bulaga in 2002. The year after, she joined ABS-CBN’s Star in a Million. She was a consistent top finalist from the start until the finals. Though she ended up first runner-up, she continued to soar high in the music scene by consistently belting out popular hits on TV and radio. In 2004 she represented Philippines in 'Voice of Asia' in Kazahkstan where she has won 2 prizes.
Angeline is a living picture of perseverance and determination. Not winning in first few singing competitions she joined did not stop her from chasing her dreams. She was a finalist in Star for a Night that Sarah Geronimo eventually won. She was a wildcard finalist on GMA's Diz It It Kantahan. She was also a finalist in Pinoy Pop Superstar losing to Jonalyn Viray. Not too long after, she finally got the grand champion trophy in Star Power Search, winning as the First Female Pop Superstar. From then on, various awards and recognition came along for this future superstar.
These two young divas continue their prowess in the music industry by popularizing quite a number of theme songs for famous TV soaps and films.
The Dubai show will also feature promising Filipino talents in the UAE like Oriel Padura, Gemini Gatchalian, Ian Chris Tocle and Zack Allen. La Ghie, who will represent the Philippines for 'We are the Emirates' song will be the night's special guest.
Part of the proceeds will be dedicated to aid a Dubai-based OFW battling with Leukemia.
