Casino Filipino (CF) is bringing another surprise treat to its guests and patrons as its homegrown artists known as “The Champions” go on a nationwide concert tour with 2012 X Factor Philippines grand winner KZ Tandingan this August.
“The Champions”—all winners of the past three seasons of the OPM@Pagcor nationwide singing search—are expected to showcase their musical talent, which earned them the distinction as “Total OPM Performers.” The group is comprised of grand champions Joyce Tañaña, Froilan Canlas and Karl Aris Tanhueco.
Bong Quintana, Pagcor’s assistant vice president for Entertainment relates, “KZ and our homegrown artists are the best proof that our country is not wanting in promising talents. Marami sa ating mga magaling na mang-aawit ang nadiskubre dahil sa mga singing contest. We are very happy that KZ agreed to have this nationwide concert tour with our artists. This is a reunion of champions that should never be missed.”
Besides bagging the plum prize in the 2012 X Factor reality show on ABS-CBN Tandingan was conferred with the “Best New Artist Award” during the Aliw Awards in the same year. Fresh from the successful staging of road shows in different parts of the country, Tandingan is now busy promoting her self-titled debut album.
Meanwhile, Quintana adds that Pagcor is working on a more aggressive career plan for its homegrown artists. “We want them to penetrate mainstream entertainment, broaden their exposure to outside venues, on television as well as other media. We have started making MTVs for them to be able to make their presence felt in the social network which has a wide audience base,” he ends.
The Casino Filipino nationwide concert tour will kick off on August 7 at the Airport Casino Filipino in Parañaque City. This will be followed by a series of performances on August 17 (CF Cebu); August 21 (CF Davao); August 24 (CF Olongapo); August 28 (CF Bacolod); and August 31 (CF Tagaytay).
