Since GMA is no longer looking for a Pinoy Idol, they are now searching for the next “Asia’s Songbird”, “Queen of Soul”, “RnB Princess” or “Prince of RnB”. In short, they are looking for the next BIG STAR!
If you think you have the whole package who has the potential to be the next singing superstar, the pre-screenings are starting today! The search is open to all amateur and even professional singers, male or female, and within the age of 16 to 24 years old.
Even those who had a career in singing or recording before, or appeared in a singing competition, are allowed to join provided that they have no existing contract and no mainstream appearances in 2008. So Pinoy Idol and Pinoy Dream Academy season 2 contestants are not eligible this year.
The first batch of audition schedules are as follows:
April 2 and 3 – SM Baliwag @ 10:00 a.m.
April 18 – SM Batangas @ 10 a.m.
April 24 and 25 – SM Marikina @ 10 a.m.
Other audition schedules to be announced.
Here are the requirements for audition:
1. Original and a photocopy of birth certificate
2. A valid ID, 2 photos (1 full body and 1 close-up)
3. Audition materials (2 CDs in minus 1 format)
Regine Velasquez will return to talent search hosting in GMA’s “Are You the Next Big Star?” The show is set to premiere in mid-May this year.
