SM Little Stars 2015 Launched


 

 

SM Little Stars 2015 was officially launched in a Presscon yesterday that was held at The Block- SM City North Edsa.

During the presscon, it was surprising to know that SM Little Stars actually started in China last 2003.  It was only in 2007 that SM had it here in the Philippines and SM Little Stars 2015 is marking the 9th successful year of this contest. In the event launch, we had the chance to watch SM Little Stars winners show-off their amazing talents.

Telesa De Torres who was 3rd runner up in 2013 sang  “On my Own” of Les Miserables . With her dramatic and theatrical rendition who would think that she’s just 8 y.o?

Next was Nhikzy Calma, the grand winner from SM Little Stars 2013. This little dancer is a certified top-notch entertainer. He was so cute that I can’t help but record his dance moves.

The presscon then proceeded with introduction of SM Little Stars 2015 celebrity guest panelists and judges who consisted of Director Mac Alejandre, Actress Jasmine Curtis-Smith , and Actor Audie Gemora who sent a video since he was not able to attend.

Ms. Jane Basas, President of Media5 was also present as it was announced that TV 5 will be the official media partner for SM Little Stars 2015. Here was her meaningful comment about this partnership –

TV5 also known for the strength of kid’s block.. Monday to Sunday, we actually carry the most popular, global kid shows, the most loved brands..SM Little Stars is a perfect fit to that grid. But this partnership is even made more special because it’s actually aligned with the thrust of TV5 for providing fun, educational entertainment programs for children. So we’re one with SM in their thrust and their objective of providing a venue fo kids not just to become superstars but for kids to have a chance to receive a better education..They are providing kids a platform to become more wholistic individuals

SM officials Ms.Grace Magno, VP for Advertising and Ms.Bing Lazaro, Marketing Manager for SM Supermalls. SM Little Star achievers JM Ibanez, Mackee Dulalia and Vince Angeles who shared their experience and gave advice on aspiring contestants.

SM Little Stars 2015

SM Little Stars 2015 can really be exciting for both kids and parents. As mentioned by Director Mac Alejandre ” SM Little Stars ay isa sa mga  platform para makita natin kung anung meron ang mga bata  na pinaniniwalaan natin na kaya nating gawin. We all believe that each child has special; something.. SM Little Stars will not only be a platform for them to show what they’ve got, but it will also help them to bring out what they have in them.. SM Little StarsI believe will help the kids know themselves better and let the parents know what their children have

I was happy to be invited in the said event for I personally have fond memories for SM Little Stars. Way back 2009, I also became a nervous parent while watching my 2 kids showcase their talent in this contest  . They did not win, but  my kids had their share of exposure in VTRs and mall shows after the contest. Most importantly, the bonding time we spent together in discovering their talents was what I considered the grand prize .
