New York, May 3: The “Kumu’s “Sing For The Stars” competition has finally got a winner.
Hailing all the way from General Santos City, in the southern part of the Philippine archipelago, Shanne Gulle sang her way through the finish line.
Winning was no easy feat, but she won due to her talent, dedication, and the courage to take a leap of faith.
And let’s not forget the final piece of the puzzle: the technology to reach the farthest corners of the globe, which is where Kumu comes in handy.
Hundreds of aspirants joined the country’s first-ever virtual singing contest and called upon their supporters to fuel the journey via the giving of virtual gifts.
Much like an actual rocket launch with parts disengaging along the way, there were eliminations that narrowed down the contestant number from 100 down to 30, to 15, and finally, the top three.
The judges of the competition were Grammy Award-winning Michael Bublé, and Tony Award-winning Lea Salonga, along with other big names in the music industry such as KZ Tandingan and Ben&Ben.
It isn’t really the end for those who didn’t make it to the top—a diamond in the rough is still a diamond beneath the surface.
During the “Sing For The Stars”’ virtual press conference, Lea Salonga mentioned that aspiring musicians can still get discovered even if they did not win the competition, which is a very encouraging statement to hold on to.
Many can start their musical journey, but only one can call herself a Grand Champion and enjoy the perks that come with it—the title belongs to Shanne Gulle alone.
