The Mossimo Music Summit 2015 Grand Finalists 3

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.
