STAGES’ Tippy Dos Santos, with her amazing vocals and starrific charm, eclipsed her contemporaries in the ABS-CBN youth show Shoutout while Talent5’s Morissette Amon snatched the second top plum in the Kapatid Network’s talent search Star Factor. This July 2, at 5:30 p.m., at the Entertainment Hall of Robinsons Midtown Ermita, the two young divas will battle it out in the hope of being hailed the better performer in Face Off.
Will Tippy’s theater background, World Championship of Performing Arts (WCOPA) title, and her mestiza features propel her to be hailed the better performer? Or, will Morissette’s Sarah Geronimo-like charm, strong pipes, and experiences as singing search contestant be enough for her to emerge on top?
At her young age, Tippy may well be considered stage veteran having been part of musical productions like Children’s Letters To God, Beauty and the Beast. This propelled her to reap awards at the WCOPA. She is also slated to be Sam Concepcion’s partner in STAGES’ production of Peter Pan.
“More than the duel between me and Morissette, I think this concert would showcase the talent of the Filipino youth,” says Tippy. “It will be a fun show. I hope everyone can watch.”
The Talent5 singer agrees with what her “competitor” said adding that the real winner of this face off will be the audience because she guarantees only the best from her and Tippy.
Morissette started singing at a very young age and trooped to various singing contests in native Cebu. She just finished waxing her debut album.
ABS-CBN teen star Sam Concepcion was asked by the two young divas to direct the show. This will be the first time that Sam is directing a concert. This serves as a prelude to Sam’s major concert, slated for next year, that he will topbill and direct.
“This is my way of supporting my friends in this endeavor,” says Sam. “I have taping that day, so I agreed to just direct the concert.”
Tippy and Morissette will belt out their favorite tunes from their favorite divas like Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Beyonce, among others. The two singers will also pay tribute to megastar Sharon Cuneta, the most successful singer in local entertainment history.
Face Off, presented by STAGES, Talent5, and Hype Cologne, in cooperation with TV5 and ASAP Rocks, will have Talent5 artists as guests for the show.
Admission is free to Face Off.
