The much-awaited ‘Boses, Tinig Pinoy’, a nationwide search for best trio and duet in acapella singing competition launched by Radio Philippines Network, Inc. (RPN), will hold its final monthly elimination rounds on Saturday, November 23, 3pm, at the Yubengco Starmall in barangay Putik, this city.

Said contest, which kicked off with its weekly elimination rounds last July, has so far, garnered four sets of winners each for duet and trio categories, respectively.

Winners of this monthly finals will again compete for the coming quarterly finals, and who ever makes it, will be bound for the grand finals in Manila, on January next year.

RPN-Zamboanga Station Manager, Manuel ‘Jerry’ Lacastesantos, has also confirmed the arrival of national artists to grace the said affair, which is expected to draw a mammoth crowd.

“We will have famous Balladeer Anthony Castelo, singers Aileen Papin and John Nite, as well as, child sensation Constantine, coming over to be both entertainers and judges for ‘Boses, Tinig Pinoy’ roadshow” said Lacastesantos.

At the same time, Lacastesantos announced the coming of RPN executives headed by its lawyer-president, Assistant Secretary Robert Rivera, who treats ‘Boses’ as his brainchild.

A million pesos worth of cash and valuable prizes await the victors of such contest, along with recording contracts with sponsoring music studios.

Rivera will also lead in the soft opening of newly-constructed studios and offices of RPN’s radio station DXXX in its new site, at the 3rd floor of Fairland Building, along Mayor Vitaliano Agan Street, on Saturday morning.

Lacastesantos said, “The transfer of our (DXXX) radio studios to its new site, forms part of RPN’s massive rehabilitation program for both its radio and TV stations along with its technical equipment nationwide. Such transfer also paves the way for RPN’s projected operation of a tele-radyo style of broadcast here in the city very soon”.

Meanwhile, the RPN station manager has also hinted about his network’s relief operation project for victims of the recent armed conflict, who are still languishing at the different evacuation centers.

“After our radio station’s soft opening this coming Saturday, we, along with our visitor-artists will be proceeding to Sta Maria and City High main evacuation centers to distribute relief goods to those war victims”, narrates Lacastesantos.

Lacastesantos said, such relief operation is in partnerships with Coca-cola FEMSA, District 2 Congresswoman Lilia Nuño, James and Ruth Cawley, and John-john Store. — Philip Abuy
