Disney Princess: I Dare To Dream Concert

It all began with a DREAM when Globe Telecom partnered with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia to host and produce Disney Princess: I Dare To Dream. Read story here --- Disney Princess: I Dare To Dream Web Series Launch. Thousands of girls from all over the country auditioned until the number was reduced to only six. Watch video of audition and selection here --- Disney Princess: I Dare To Dream Episode 1.

The first episode which began last February 25 was followed by eight more web episodes and it highlighted a different Disney Princess that compliments the talent of a particular finalist every episode. The six lucky finalists: Hya Leonardo, Sirach Catipay, Liana San Diego, Jaden Narvios, Stephanie Jordan and Alexi Tan were also partnered with a mentor that will guide them in achieving their dream profession.

With Ms. Lea Salonga and Janina Vela as their guide, the six girls were able to hurdle the challenges that was given to them as well as had the opportunity to get to know each other better and discover their own strengths and weakness.

The finale, which was a star-studded concert held at the MOA Arena last March 22, gave the audience a chance to hear and see up-close their Disney Princess: I Dare To Dream favorite finalists as well as to cheer them in realizing their dreams.

The audience which includes tons of little girls in Disney Princess-y costumes all enjoyed the musical as guest celebrities serenaded them with favorite Disney songs. Of course, everyone was thrilled and moved when Ms. Lea Salonga sang --- "A Whole New World," (click link to watch video) with Christian Bautista. The show was very engaging and the production was excellently executed that would make one think he/she is transported to Disneyland, no kidding.

So who do you think emerge as the winner?

While almost everyone was shouting their favorite finalist, Ms. Lea Salonga mentioned each of the six finalists name and guess what? She announced that they are all winners. OMG !!! Some of the girls shed happy tears on stage because what happened was really, really unexpected. And not only that, all of them will travel together to Tokyo for the premier of Beauty and The Beast. Congratulations !!! What a very happy night. :)

And speaking of a happy night, prior to the concert, Viva Manilena partnered with Globe Telecom and the Philippine Bloggers Network (PBNet) and hosted a raffle for Viva Manilena's readers. Five lucky winners were chosen and each of them can bring a friend to watch the Disney Princess: I Dare To Dream concert. Yey !!!

See the happy faces? That's the group of Ms. Geeya Rio and Ms. Shiela Estanislao.

Here's a photo of me with early birds (a.k.a. super excited to get the tickets ;)  ) Ms. Dane Punzalan, Kristine Ladisla, and Beatriz Mendoza.

Meet my youngest winner - Beatrize Mendoza, and she's only 10 years old! Wow! Together with us is another lucky winner. Would you believe that he just happen to be at the right place and at the right time when I was meeting with my online winners? The story was, he was just at S Maison Conrad checking twitter and hoping to win some FREE tickets. How's that for luck?

And here's Ms. Suzette Timbreza with her family. She wrote in her entry that she is celebrating her birthday on March 22 which was the concert date and would wish her husband and daughter to join her in watching the concert. And because wishes do come true, she got to watch the Disney Princess: I Dare To Dream Concert with her family. :)

Thank you Globe Telecom and PBNet for bringing the Disney Magic to these lucky winners.

And here's my very own Disney Princess ... err, Kingdom Hearts Princess having a post-concert syndrome just outside the parking before we went home.
