MG3 associate is SGV’s Got Talent Year 4 grand winner!

Over 2,000 SGVeans came to cheer and vote for their favorites at the SGV’s Got Talent Year 4 Grand Finals held last 23 June 2015 at the Aliw Theater at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex. Everyone was amazed at the remarkable talents of the 17 finalists, who represented all the Market Groups (MGs) and Core Business Services (CBS), including finalists from our Davao and General Santos branches. The finalists were narrowed down from over 70 audition acts through a rigorous judging process.

Special numbers from actress and model Lovi Poe as well as radio DJ and love guru Papa Jack added to the excitement of the audience. After the performances by all finalists, several of our celebrity judges wowed the crowd, namely World Championship of the Performing Arts Junior Grand Champion Rhap Salazar, Senior Grand Champion Marielle Mamaclay, and The Voice Philippines 1st runner-up Klarisse De Guzman. The other celebrity judges included Joshua Zamora from the dance group the Maneuvers and Prof. Ed Manguiat of the UP Singing Ambassadors.

The 2nd runner-up title went to the comedy and magic duo Mark P. Toledo (MG 2) and Aaron Joshua S. Bernardino (MG 3) while the singing trio of Gabe M. Dador (MG 3), Riffy V. Gomia (MG 5) and Millet N. Liston (MG 1) was named the 1st runner-up. Blessing Joy S. Barcelona (MG 3) went home with the P50,000 grand prize and the title of SGV’s Got Talent Year 4 Grand Winner. The remaining finalists all received a consolation prize of P5,000. As with previous years, the scores of the winning finalists were determined by a combination of judges’ votes (60%) and audience votes (40%).

According to Blessing, God was a big part of her victory during the grand finals. “I was nervous the whole time when I was singing on stage but I just trusted God. Seeing my clustermates and my family cheering for me, inspired me to perform my very best,” she says.

Congratulations to our top three winners! Watch them perform during this year’s Staff Anniversary on 31 July at the SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City.
