Casino Filipino is launching Tanghalan ng Kampeon sa Casino Filipino 2019, allowing Filipino amateur yet talented singers to take center stage again. Cash prizes, trophies and certificates await the winners.
The Tanghalan ng Kampeon sa Casino Filipino 2019 grand finals will take place at the Wave Entertainment Venue of CF Manila Bay on June 20, 2019. The grand winner will receive 300,000 pesos while the first runner-up and second runner-up will get 200,000 pesos and 100,00 pesos, respectively, and the cash prizes will be given with corresponding trophies and certificates.
Each of the grand finalists who do not win will receive 10,000 pesos and a certificate. For the branch qualifiers, the top two winners will receive 25,000 pesos each and the non-winners will receive 5,000 pesos each as consolation prizes.
The contest is open to all amateur singers with either Filipino or dual citizenship. They must be 18 to 30 years old as of May 9, 2019 and must not have previously won in any national singing competition.
According to Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation entertainment department head Elmer Quintana, the talent competition will serve as a launching pad of many talented yet undiscovered singers who have what it takes to become singing champs. He said, “Filipinos are naturally good singers but not everyone has the chance to be discovered.”
“Not everyone pursues a career out of singing,” the PAGCOR entertainment department head continued. “But with this talent competition, we give them the opportunity to shine on a nationwide scale. Hopefully, it will also serve as a stepping stone for their bigger dreams in life.”
