Fresh faces Sancho delas Alas and Prince Villanueva inked contracts yesterday, December 18, with GMA Artist Center at the Executive Lounge of GMA Network Center.
Present in the contract-signing were GMA Senior Vice President for Entertainment Lilybeth G. Rasonable, GMA Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, GMA Artist Center Assistant Vice President and Head for Talent Imaging and Marketing Unit Simoun Ferrer, and co-managers Ai-Ai delas Alas and German Moreno.
Sancho delas Alas, the son of Comedy Concert Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas, will finally be part of the GMA family. He is well supported by his mom who also graced the contract signing.
Sancho sees this opportunity to venture into a different field. After studying Culinary Arts, he is ready to take a different, but a very familiar path, which is acting.
“As of the moment po, any projects na ibibigay sakin, pagtatrabahuhan ko nang maayos.
"Okay po ako na comedy at drama pero workshops po muna.
"I’m starting from the beginning po, e. Di naman po pwedeng isasabak na agad.
"May training po muna, and kung sa projects, hindi rin naman po agad-agad meron na. I still have to work on it,” promises Sancho.
Co-manager of GMA Artist Center is Sancho’s mother, Ai-Ai.
She gladly expressed her support for her son, and shared how she encourages her children to do whatever it is they want as long as they have already finished college.
She sees a lot of potential in Sancho and she’s sure that he will succeed in the business.
“Meron siyang potential. Unang-una, si Sancho, magaling 'yan sa mga musical instruments.
"Magaling 'yan mag-drums, konting kanta, magaling sumayaw, magandang umiyak.
"So, nung nag-decide ako na dito na siya, naisip kong siguro yun ang nakatadhana para sa kanya, na dito siya mapunta sa Kapuso Network,” said the self-proclaimed mommy-ger.
Meanwhile, another talent, Prince Villanueva, has been appearing on Walang Tulugan as a crooner and this contract signing can open more doors for him.
“Masaya po ako na maging part ng GMA Artist Center at nagpapasalamat po ako kay Tatay Germs na naging tulay para sa oportunidad na ito. Excited po ako sa mga proyektong ipagkakatiwala nila sa akin,” said Prince.
Lilybeth Rasonable warmly acknowledged the new GMA Artist Center talents. She is very grateful for another batch of potential stars who are addition to GMA Network’s stable of talents.
“Sancho and Prince, welcome to the Kapuso family. Ito ay pagpapatunay na tuluy-tuloy tayo sa pagdiscover ng talent para mag-increase yung pool natin,” said the GMA executive.
