Event: Yessha Dela Calzada and Altamira Saycon hailed as #PromilPS Grand #IShine4 #performingarts and #visualarts
Kids never cease to surprise us with their talents these days. Yessha Dela Calzada was hailed as the Grand #IShiner Season 4 in Performing Arts and Altamira Saycon as the Grand #IShiner Season 4 in Visual Arts at the Dolphy Theater last night. On its 4th season nurturing the gift, Promil Pre-School and ABS-CBN have announced the first winners of Promil Pre-School I-Shine Online Talent Camp.
With celebrity mentors Agot Isidro, John Pratts, Mr.Lim of Chicken Pork Adobo, StarMagic, Xian Lim, Dimples Romana and Karylle Tatlonghari, 10 finalists were given a chance to battle to grab the title Grand I-Shine Season 4 champion. Special performances by the mentors and last year's Grand I-Shiner Esang who was also made it to the finals in The Voice Kids entertained the media and guests.
My favorite was Heinz who was cute and spontaneous in the Visual Arts and Kobe from the Performing Arts. Parents of participants and netizens were given a chance to vote by tweeting their fave IShiner. The Top 10 were Gelia Vergara, Kurt Kobe Lamparas, Sean Alcovendas, Waynehart Claire Geonzon and Yessha Dela Calzada (champion) in the Performing Arts mentored by Karylle; Angela Tan, Heinz Romero, Worthington Lodriga, Samuel Pacua and Altamira Saycon (champion) for Visual Arts.
The contestants in Visual Arts were asked to explain their artwork and some of them made the audience crack in so much laughter responding in innocent and spontaneous reply to mentor/host Dimples Romana. It was difficult to not appreciate their cute yet honest answers. My heart broke at the sight of some of them crying when the winners were announced. I was happy going home as one of the winners posting #IShine4Moments. Thank you Promil Pre-School and ABS-CBN!
