El Gamma Penumbra arrives home


Members of the shadow dance group El Gamma Penumbra, the newly crowned grand champion of the very first Asia’s Got Talent, were warmly welcomed by cheering Batangueños as their motorcade went around Tanauan City on Saturday.

In a press conference following the parade, the group promised to build two homes for the aged in the cities of Tanauan and Lipa.

With their cash prize of $100,000 (about P4.3 million), El Gamma Penumbra members also bared plans to establish a shadow dance school to encourage the youth to develop their talent and stay away from drugs.

They also want to start a foundation to provide assistance to the elderly who are in charity homes, and to train kids gifted with the talent of singing and dancing.

El Gamma Penumbra members told their provincemates that they have prepared well for Asia’s Got Talent. “We have a lot of routines enough to fill a one-hour show.”

El Gamma Penumbra members and their respective parents took the occasion to thank their countrymen, not only in Batangas but all over Asia, for their votes that catapulted the group to become the very first grand champion of Asia’s Got Talent, dubbed as the biggest talent show in the world.

  1. Kinain ngayon ng mga magagaling na hurado sa ABN CBN ang kanilang mga kahambugan sa kanilang paghamak sa kakayahan ng grupo na ito. Dapat naman kasi na hindi tinitingnan ang pagtanaw ng utang na loob sa pagpili ng hurado. Dahil lamang sa nanay nya ang nagbalik ng ABSCBN sa mga Lopez maski na ito ay isang kaso ng graft ay di dapat batayan yan para piliin ang anak na maging artista o talent daw nila. Tandaan na foreclosed na ng DBP ang ABSCBN kaya ang pagbabalik nito sa mga Lopez ay isang malaking anomalya. Pagaari na ng sambayaan yan.

    El Gamma Penumbra – a vision personified. You’ve got what it takes to show the world that the Filipino can–with sheer guts and talent! Thank you for making us proud and thank you for sharing your winnings to the less fortunate and those aspiring to become like you someday. Keep blessed. I am humbled by your purity of intentions. You have touched millions of hearts, continue doing so.

  3. This is my first time to follow a ‘talent’ all the way to the finals. Their performance, each and every one of it had a message to tell. It is no like other performance of singing, dancing or whatever. Their talent and performance has meaning and performance like no other talent. Kudos to El Gamma Penumbra!!!
