That heavy rain on Sunday, July 28, did not stop people from flocking the Activity Area of Robinsons Place Lipa to watch the Brgy. Videoke Challenge 2013.
That was totally an epic competition as 15 contestants from different barangays vied for the championship title. The contenders in this challenge are barangay officials, functionaries, and SK officials.
The challenge is, each contender will pick a number corresponding to the song he/she will sing. Apparently, the contenders are clueless on the song they are to perform. The contender can choose if he/she would like to sing the picked song or his/her preferred song but 5 points will be deducted from his/her total score. Few contestants bravely sang the picked song.
I’m glad to have witnessed how these barangay officials unleashed their singing prowess that afternoon. It was totally entertaining and I guess the crowd went crazy as their bets started to sing.
A contender from Brgy. San Jose even quips, “Relax lang, sanay na ako lumaban sa mga ganito,” when asked how does it feel to join in this contest. Almost all of the contenders were relaxed and it seemed that they really enjoyed the competition.
After another entertaining number from the Dynamic Movers, the host finally announced the winners!
Champion: Carlos Manalo of Brgy. 4, Mataasnakahoy
1st Runner-Up: Leonardo Arellano of Brgy. Sampaguita Lipa City
2nd Runner-Up: Rose Ann Sabili of Brgy. Calicanto, Batangas City
The lucky winner brought home P10,000 and a SKIL Cordless Combo Kit/ Power Tools worth P8,000 for their barangay. First runner-up received P7,000 and second runner-up took home P5,000.
For those who regret why they did not join this contest, don’t worry, there will be Brgy. Videoke Challenge 2014. You’ve got a long way to go to practice your winning piece!
