New York, March 7: Filipino streaming platform Kumu has launched an all-digital international singing competition with participation from four-time Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Michael Bublé, and Tony award-winning musical theater legend, Lea Salonga, as the star judges.
Being the first of its kind competition, Kumu’s “Sing For The Stars,” found a way to tap into the abundance of undiscovered talents, while harnessing the power of social networking to forge its own global community.

“Through this competition, we’re discovering and highlighting new voices on a world stage in a unique and brand new way.
“Sing for the Stars is the most inclusive talent show ever because talents can audition, perform, and win no matter who or where in the world they are.”

“Since Sing For The Stars is live-streamed on Kumu, everything is happening in real-time, including direct interactions and support from their adoring and supportive audience who are also all over the world.”
The freedom of choice and the level of up-front audience interaction are what sets Sing For The Stars from other singing competitions.
“We’re really hoping to find talented, breakthrough artists who embody our core values of positivity and authenticity,” Ros said.

“But the show isn’t only about creating a stage for our singers, it’s also going to be a way to activate community support and rally music-lovers on the app to come together.”
The first phase of “Sing for the Stars” opened to all aspiring contestants on Feb 23, 2020.
Tallying is set to happen tomorrow (March 8), where the top 100 performers will advance to the next phase of the competition.
