Sparkle GMA Artist Center Names its Next Brightest Stars

Ever since it was launched in 1995, GMA Artist Center has produced some of the most luminous names in Philippine showbiz such as Alden Richards, Heart Evangelista, Julie Anne San Jose, Barbie Forteza, and Ken Chan to name a few. Over two and half decades later, GMA Network’s talent management arm has held on to its promise of housing the country’s biggest stars and honing its up-and-coming artists.

This 2022, Artist Center takes it up a notch as it starts the year with a fresh and energized new name.

Say hello to “Sparkle!”

With Sparkle, GMA aims to light a fun and exciting spark in the entertainment industry all while evolving to fit the ever-changing new media and digital landscape. Spearheaded by Mr. Johnny Manahan together with Ms. Gigi Santiago-Lara, Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions, Sparkle is here to propel GMA Artist Center to even greater heights.

As Mr. M aptly puts it, “Only the brightest stars sparkle. Our aim is to leave a little Sparkle wherever we go.”

GMA Artist Center’s webpage and official social media accounts have been revamped and received the Sparkle treatment to better reflect its vibrant and colorful future. In turn, be sure to expect more engaging and dazzling content across all platforms.

Aside from its new title, Sparkle is also proud to introduce its cluster of bright, young stars to watch for this New Year! Meet Sparkle’s Next Brightest Stars for 2022, below:

Sparkle’s Next Brightest Stars: 

Bianca Umali

Beautiful, cool, smart, and oh-so-exciting, Bianca is ready to set 2022 on fire. Bianca is a versatile actress who dances, sings, and looks great in anything she wears. She is also a great host and an interesting content producer where she shows off how smart and woke she is in real life. 

Her challenging roles in Legal Wives and Sahaya plus her international series on HBO’s Halfworlds are sure signs that this young star is really sparkling. This year, catch her in Mano Po 2 and enjoy her performances on All-Out Sundays

Bianca is a great endorser, too, and her IG posts always get a multitude of likes and comments. 

Bianca is all set to sparkle even more in 2022. 

Ysabel Ortega

GMA’s new sweetheart is Ysabel Ortega. 

Beautiful skin, sparkling eyes, a sincere smile, and the nicest and sweetest personality have made Ysabel an easy favorite. 

Even with such assets, Ysabel stays humble and always looks back to her roots in her provincial family home. 

She will soon be seen in a new primetime series airing in 2022 titled What We Could Be and will be one of the leads in the much-awaited Voltes V: Legacy as Jamie Robinson.
