After more than a month of grueling auditions and screenings, the much-awaited talent search to hit the music and fashion industries is ready to welcome its new discoveries.
The Mossimo Music Summit 2015 sets the stage for four talented performers at the grand finals show tomorrow, August 21, 4 p.m. at the TriNoMa Activity Center.
“We, at Mossimo are very thrilled to put the spotlight on some of the country’s aspiring artists,” said Adamson Bactat, Mossimo’s vice president for Business Development. “Our country is blessed with so much talents, and through this annual search, we are able to give these budding performers the opportunity to make their mark in the entertainment scene.”
The four finalists who will battle it out for the grand prize are Kristel Herrera, Mark Francis Reyes, Zsaris Mendioro, and the trio OTM.
Kristel Herrera is a 22-year old lounge singer from Sampaloc, Manila. Singing since she was nine, Kristel is now into blues and jazz. She credits her four-year stint performing in different venues in improving her vocal skills as well as her ability to connect with her audience.
Hailing from Pampanga is 20-year old Mark Francis Reyes, who is a staple singer in local events and singing competitions for the last five years. His musical interest ranges from classic, pop and rock.
Zsaris Mendioro is a 27-year old talent from Los Baños, Laguna. She is a loop artist and also has impressive beat-boxing skills. She plays the guitar and has been performing in different bars in Metro Manila.
Finally, the acoustic trio OTM is comprised of Jenz on vocals and percussions, Kaye on vocals and guitar, and Matthew on vocals and violin. They formed their group for a gig at a wedding and decided to audition for Mossimo Music Summit.
Besides the opportunity to become the next big recording star, the winner of the competition will also land an exclusive recording and management contract with Curve Entertainment, and bring home cash and prizes amounting to P500,000.
For the fashion component of the summit, Mossimo will also present at the grand finals 36 male and female models selected from over a thousand applicants, as well as three dance groups were chosen from hundreds of auditionees. The models will showcase the brand’s latest collection, while the dance groups will bring added entertainment for mall-goers who will show up at TriNoma tomorrow afternoon.
