PRESS STATEMENT FROM ETC:
Step up to the microphone and sing your heart out for your school!
In the spirit of ETC’s hit musical shows American Idol and Glee, ETC is calling on college students in Metro Manila to join Vocapella, an inter-school a cappella competition. Here is your chance to harmonize with your classmates and show off your true potential as performers for a chance of winning the grand prize of P200,000!
Joining is easy; just form a singing group of six members from the college you are currently enrolled in and video yourself performing a medley of songs. Entries must be 3-5 minutes. Once you are happy with your video, upload it to YouTube and send the link to firstname.lastname@example.org or thru snail mail to Solar Entertainment’s Office (2/F Worldwide Corporate Center corner EDSA, Mandaluyong City).
ETC will then choose the best entries and call on the groups to submit a second video performance that will be uploaded for audience voting on ETC’s website. The groups with the most votes will then perform against each other in front of a live audience and a panel of judges made up of music industry professionals. Performances will be judged based on harmony, song choice & arrangement, audience impact, costume and choreography.
ETC Vocapella will be launched next month, watch out for more details and updates thru ETC’s Facebook (facebook.com/etctv) and twitter (@etc_channel) and on-air.
ETC is seen on UHF channel 21, Sky Cable and Destiny Digital Ch. 16, Global Destiny Ch. 28, Cignal Ch. 9, Cable Link Ch. 34 and various cable operators nationwide.
