[Press Release: Curve Entertainment] After more than a month of grueling auditions and screenings, the much-awaited talent search to hit the music and fashion industries is ready to welcome its new big discovery.
The Mossimo Music Summit 2015 sets the stage for four talented performers in the grand finals slated on August 21, Friday, 4PM at the TriNoMa Activity Center.
“We, at Mossimo are very thrilled to put the spotlight on some of the countries aspiring artists,” says Adamson Bactat, Mossimo’s Vice-President for Business Development. “Our country is blessed with so much talents, and through this annual search, we are able to give these budding performers the opportunity to make their mark in the entertainment scene,” Bactat adds.
The four finalists who will battle it out for the grand prize are Kristel Herrera, Mark Francis Reyes, Zsaris Mendioro, and the trio OTM.
Kristel Herrera is a 22-year old lounge singer from Sampaloc, Manila. She’s been singing since she was 9, and she’s into blues and jazz. Her four-year stint as a lounge singer has enabled her to improve her vocal skills and the way she relates to her audience.
Coming all the way from Pampanga is 20-year old Mark Francis Reyes. He’s been performing in local events and joining singing competitions since he was 15. His musical interest ranges from classic, pop and rock.
Zsaris Mendioro is 27 years old from Los Baños, Laguna. She’s a loop artist and also has impressive beat-boxing skills. She plays the guitar and has been performing in different bars in Metro Manila.
Finally, the acoustic trio OTM is composed of Jenz on vocals and percussions, Kaye on vocals and guitar, and Matthew on vocals and violin. They got together during a gig in a wedding and decided to form the group just so they could audition for Mossimo Music Summit.
Aside from the opportunity to become the next big recording star, as the winner will be signed to an exclusive recording and management contract with Curve Entertainment, the lucky finalist will bring home P500,000 in cash and prizes from Mossimo.
In addition to the music search, Mossimo also held an open casting for models and dance groups. 36 male and female models were fielded from thousands of aspirants, while three dance groups were chosen from hundreds of auditionees. They, together with the music finalists will form a special show that will treat TriNoma mall-goers to breathtaking entertainment.
