The search is on for ‘Little Stars’ 2018


Over the past twelve years, the SM Little Stars talent competition has become a stepping stone for bigger, better, and brighter things.

Fil-Korean Chun Sa Angella Jung, who was the Girl Grand Winner in 2014, is a mainstay of a kiddie sketch comedy show on mainstream TV; while Nhikzy Vheench Calma, the Boy Grand Winner in 2013, was awarded as WCOPA 2017’s Junior Grand Champion Performer of the World last July 8 in Long Beach, California. Sheena Kirtsten Bentoy, the 2016 Grand Girl Winner, is now a commercial model and is all set to play a well-loved role in Disney’s The Lion King the Musical in March.
