After the stunning success of The Voice Kids (TVK) Season 1 and The Voice franchise as a whole, it isn’t surprising that ABS-CBN is already laying the groundwork for the next batch of talented young singers in the country.

The reality singing competition is open to children between ages 7 to 13. Each kid shall prepare two to four songs in the audition. No need to bring tapes – the songs will be sung in a capella to better gauge the singing talent of the participants.
Auditions will be done in different Starmall branches, as per schedule:

March 15 – Starmall Alabang, 9 to 5 PM

March 15 – Starmall San Jose Del Monte, 9 to 5 PM

March 21 – Starmall EDSA-SHAW, 9 to 5 PM

March 25 – Starmall Las Piñas, 9 to 5 PM

March 29 – Starmall Prima Taguig, 9 to 5 PM

April 9 – Starmall Talisay

The above dates are preliminary auditions, inviting talented young kids to put their best foot forward and get noticed. From there, the ABS-CBN reality show judges will be weeding out contestants and picking the best of the best for their team. No doubt, the audition is just part one of the long, gruelling – yet highly rewarding process of being the next grand champion of the The Voice Kids.

The Voice Kids Season 1’s winner, Lyca Gairanod, won a recording contract with one of the best in the industry today, her career currently enjoying a fast rise with MCA Universal. 

Along with that, she and her family are now enjoying their new home in Camella Tierra Nevada. Camella, the biggest homebuilder in the country, was one of the major sponsors of the show.
Additional prizes of Lyca include 1 million cash prize, a trust fund, home appliance and music showcases, and many more.

Even months after the airing of the TVK season 1, Lyca, and the other top contestants, namely, Darren Espanto, Juan Karlos Labajo and Darlene Vibares, continues to make waves and creates their own mark in the local entertainment industry, a testament to the high publicity the show has garnered. 
According to Kantar Media, TVK Season 1 was the most-watched show nationwide in 2014, garnering an average rating of 34.5%. 

Last season’s show was hosted by Luiz Manzano and Alex Gonzaga, and the second season promises the same setup. The team of judges in Season 1: Sarah Geronimo, Lea Salonga, and Bamboo Mañalac may also be part of this successful show’s second season.

During its three-month run (May to July 2014), The Voice Kids dominated social media with the top contestants trending in social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. More of the same are expected for Season 2 as judges embark on blind auditions and coach their picks to become better singers and performers in general.

The Voice Kids is based on a Dutch reality TV Show running under the same name. The Philippine reboot of the show will start airing soon after auditions. Stay updated for further TVK audition schedules. (

Dingdong Dantes, one of the country's most-sought-after leading men, who is blessed not just with bountiful talent but especially with the heart to reach out and act upon his advocacies, will portray the role of Father Kokoy.

Everyone may want to be part of Kokoy's world. Aside from having the complete package of good looks, humor, warmth, and wisdom, he is also being looked upon because of his on-point principles in life. A go-to person in times of problems, Kokoy is the kind of friend who will unconditionally offer a shoulder to lean on. He is the ideal guy, the Mr. Right, and the man any woman would like to introduce to her parents. But here's the catch: Kokoy is a priest.

Father Kokoy, better known as "Pari Koy," is a priest who is known for his non-traditional and non-conformist ways of bringing people closer to God. He will do anything just to show that it is cool to believe. But his own faith will be put to the test when he is assigned in the parish of Barangay Pinagpala and starts to deal with the people of the community.

Set in a contemporary barangay, stellar performances will be delivered by some of the country's respected and talented artists including Sunshine Dizon as Noemi, the secretary of the parish in Pinagpala who remains to be optimistic despite being maltreated by her husband; Chanda Romero as Martha, the self-righteous leader of the lay workers in the parish of Pinagpala who is against the unconventional ways of Father Kokoy; Luz Valdez as Esther, one of the lay workers in the parish who loves to talk about gossips and rumors; and Dexter Doria as Salome, also a lay worker who loyally serves in the parish despite being teased by Martha and Esther.

Another highlight to look forward to is how Father Kokoy puts his faith in action as he meets the poeple of Barangay Pinagpala. Playing equally vital roles are Gabby Eigenmann as Jude, the influential and corrupt chairman of Barangay Pinagpala; Rap Fernandez as Sol, the right-hand person of Jude, who helps him with his illegal schemes; JC Tiuseco as Timo, the irresponsible brother of Noemi; and Carlo Gonzales as Simon, the abusive husband of Noemi who fails to provide for his family.

Bringing more delight in the series are characters to be portrayed by GMA Artist Center's homegrown talents led by Jillian Ward as Sarah, the loving daughter of Noemi; Jeric Gonzales as Eli, the son of Salome who thinks of going to parish is uncool; Lindsay de Vera as Ava, the charming grandchild of Martha who will fall in love with Eli; Hiro Peralta as Sam, the closet homosexual brother of Father Kokoy; and David Remo as Pinggoy, the high-spirited "village's son" of Barangay Pinagpala.

How will Father Kokoy bring the people of Barangay Pinagpala closer to God? Will he be successful in instigating change in the community? Or will his faith and perspectives in life be moved by the people around him?

And to helm this primetime series is the award-winning director Maryo J. Delos Reyes. After the successful run of the primetime series Niño, GMA takes pride in having him as the director of Pari 'Koy who is known not only for tackling social relevance but for uplifting the human spirit and evoking hope through his masterpieces.

From the original concept of Christine Novicio, Pari Koy is created by the GMA Drama group headed by Lilybeth G. Rasonable, Senior Vice President for Entertainment TV; Redgie A. Magno, Vice President for Drama; Cheryl Ching-Sy, Assistant Vice President for Drama; Redgynn S. Alba, Program Manager; and Darling Pulido-Torres, Executive Producer.

Pari 'Koy airs weeknights beginning March 9 after 24 Oras on GMA Telebabad. For more updates, don’t forget to LIKE and FOLLOW (

 It's "Biyahe ni Drew"  2nd birthday this March. And he has something to offer to all the travel enthusiast viewers out there!

This March, Biyahe ni Drew dares all biyaheros to leave their comfort zone, review their travel bucket lists and TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT! Professional traveller and most recent DOT’s Tourism Star awardee Drew Arellano goes to four scenic and memorable locations to celebrate Biyahe ni Drew’s 2nd anniversary.

Here are the show's month-long travel anniversary special treat:

March 6: Siargao

To kick off this month-long anniversary celebration, Drew goes surfs up on the famous Cloud 9 of Siargao. Here, he discovers that the famous surfing destination has a lot more to offer than barrelling waves. It also features unique rock formations where daredevils can cliff dive. In Magpupungko Beach, there are natural pools where one can leisurely swim. There are also dune buggy and crocodile hunting tours for those looking for an extra rush of adrenaline.

March 13: Bukidnon

Drew tries cowboy livin’ among the cattle herders of Bukidnon as he heads to Northern Mindanao for a taste of something different. Here, Drew finds out that there’s a lot more to raising cattle than meets the eye. Aside from visiting famous landmarks in Bukidnon, the self-confessed caffeine lover also discovers the secrets to creating the full-bodied flavour of the famous Monk’s Blend coffee.

March 20: Livin’ Large in Palawan 

As dream destinations go, the private islands in Palawan probably top many travellers’ bucket lists. This year, Drew gets to experience the “good life” as he lives it up in secluded, exclusive hideaways in Palawan for Biyahe ni Drew’s special feature. This is the kind of trip that one would do in a heartbeat if money was no object. Travelling via private sea plane, island hopping via private yacht, having a staff of 30 at your beck and call and “owning” an island for a few days... certainly a trip of a lifetime.

March 27: Hokkaido, Japan 

Drew escapes the Philippines’ summer heat by cooling off in Hokkaido, Japan for a “winter wonderland” special. For the first time in Biyahe ni Drew, Drew goes to Niseko, the most famous ski resort in Japan, known for its light powder snow where he tests his skiing/snowboarding skills. 

Biyahe ni Drew’s 2nd anniversary specials will air from March 6 to 28, 8pm on GMA News TV! (

Actress Dina Bonnevie heats things up even more in the last few weeks of “Two Wives” as she joins the cast of the hit primetime series as Janine’s long lost mother. 

The original “Katorse” star Dina, whose role as Nene was reprised by Erich on television, finally gives life to Minerva, a woman who made ends meet for her and her daughter Janine (Erich Gonzales) by being a mistress to different married men. 

When she thought she found true love, Minerva entrusted Janine to Vida (Sharmaine Arnaiz) and went to the US with her American husband. She was supposed to go back for Janine but never got the chance, because she was turned into a sex slave by her husband and was held captive. 

Now that she’s free, Minerva is more than ready to make it up to her daughter, especially after she learned about Janine’s ordeals from Kenjie (Daniel Matsunaga).  

Don’t miss the last few weeks of “Two Wives,” weeknights after “Forevermore” on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida. (

Team Sarah’s James Jason Dy was declared the grand winner of the second season of “The Voice of the Philippines” after receiving 52.94% of public votes at the top-rating program’s grand finale last night (Mar 1) at Resorts World Manila.

“I’m just very thankful. Thanks to all who voted and campaigned for me, and to those who believed in me – my coach and God, who gave me this blessing and opportunity. In God’s time talaga. I’ve been waiting for this chance,” Jason said.

Jason, who works as a ‘haranista’ and was able to get three coaches to turn around for him during his blind audition, beat runner-up Alisah Bonaobra of Team Apl who garnered 47.06% of the votes. Their scores were reset to zero before the poll reopened for their final performances.

“The most important lesson I learned from coach (Sarah) is to sing from the heart, because there are many great singers but what people look for is connection, for them to feel what you want to communicate,” he said.

Coach Sarah, on the other hand, said, “It’s hard to find an artist who does not need to belt out just to touch your heart. Jason has his own voice that you won’t find in other singers. It’s world-class.”

As the latest “The Voice of the Philippines,” Jason won a trophy designed and crafted by contemporary artist Leeroy New, a house and lot worth P2 million, a music instrument package worth P100,000, shopping spree and Asian tour package worth P350,000, a business package worth P1 million, a new car worth P1 million, a recording and management contract with MCA Music, and P2 million in cash.

Most Filipinos tuned in to Sunday’s finale as it recorded a national TV rating of 30.8%, based on data from Kantar Media. The first part of the live showdown on Saturday (Feb 28) also hit a national TV rating of 28%. Netizens also voiced out their support for their bets, with the official hashtag #VoicePH2Finale topping the worldwide trending topics on Twitter on both nights.

Before crooning his winning song “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin,” Jason earlier performed “If I Ain’t Got You” with coach Sarah, “With You,” and “Wrecking Ball” with Charice during the finale’s first three rounds

For the duets with guest artists round, Alisah, Leah Patricio (Team Lea) and Rence Rapanot (Team Bamboo) took on the stage with Dulce, Jed Madela, and Joey Ayala and Bayang Barrios, respectively.

Before the finale drew to a close, hosts Luis Manzano and Toni Gonzaga said that a new season of “The Voice Kids” will soon air. Exciting! (

JM De Guzman and Meg Imperial team up for the first time in the special Valentine’s Day episode of “Ipaglaban Mo” airing this Saturday (Feb 14).

On the set, Meg admitted that she was still a bit uncomfortable doing scenes with JM even if they already met before.

“This is our first time to do ‘kilig’ scenes together so I am still adjusting, in a way. We even did scenes where I couldn't look at him straight in the eye but after a couple more takes, things got better,” shared Meg.

When asked if they are willing to become an official love team, both said they are open to the idea. JM shortly quipped, “Why not?”

Despite being romantically linked recently, JM and Meg revealed that they don’t have plans to celebrate the upcoming Valentine’s Day.

“I might just stay at home or maybe work. I’m not sure of my schedule yet,” said Meg.

“I'm hoping that Valentine’s has a plan for me,” playfully answered JM.

How will Trish win Eman’s trust back? Will Eman believe that Trish is a victim of identity theft? Will they still have their happily ever after?

Star for all Seasons Vilma Santos showed her full support for ABS-CBN’s film restoration project after she graced the special “V x 3” screening held at the University of the Philippines Film Institute (UPFI) Cine Adarna recently, wherein three of her most remarkable and award-winning films were showcased for the first time in high definition format.

The event, organized by ABS-CBN Film Archives in partnership with UPFI, screened the digitally restored and re-mastered copies of “Anak,” “Kapag Langit ang Humatol,” and “Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa?”

“It’s a such an overwhelming feeling to again watch films that you are truly proud that were made even better now that it’s in HD format. ABS-CBN is giving viewers, especially the younger generation, this great opportunity to witness these restored titles, which I believe truly mirrors the lives of Filipinos,” said Gov. Vi.

Aside from Gov. Vi, original directors of the said films Rory Quintos, Laurice Guillen, and Chito Rono also graced the special screening together with “Bata, Bata” leading man Albert Martinez and co-star Cherrie Pie Picache, director Olivia Lamasan, and Star Creatives head Malou Santos.

The solid Vilmanians also weren’t left behind as they flocked to the Cine Adarna and lined up as early as morning just to show their support for their idol.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN Film Archives head and the brain behind the restoration project, Leo Katigbak, felt very overwhelmed by the very warm reception given by Gov. Vi and even by the general public.
“It feels great to hear the thunderous applause from the audience. Just like a blockbuster hit complete with screaming fans. But it’s more rewarding when the audience shares their thoughts and opinions on the restored films. This shows they are already invested in what we are doing and this response has been recurring more with our recent screenings. We are touching their hearts and minds little by little,” Leo explained. (

Every now and then a single creation arrives, suddenly and with seismic force, to tap an unexpected vein of shared curiosity and intrigue, coming to span cultures in its popularity and becoming universally known by its name alone. Such is the phenomenon “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Since the first episodes of E L James’ story were modestly released through an online-based publishing house in 2011, her “Fifty Shades” trilogy has grown into one of the biggest and fastest-selling book series ever, with more than 100 million copies in 52 languages consumed all over the world. The four words of its title have come to represent, to readers and nonreaders alike, a bold new emblem of mainstream sensuality.

Now the film adaptation that has been the subject of widespread speculation and boundless curiosity, whose first trailer became YouTube’s most-watched movie trailer last year, comes to the big screen as a motion-picture event for Valentine’s Day.

Stepping into the iconic roles of billionaire entrepreneur Christian Grey and curious college student Anastasia Steele are Jamie Dornan (TV’s “The Fall,” “Once Upon a Time”) and Dakota Johnson (“The Social Network,” “21 Jump Street”).

In a story that is as much about the redemption of the unattainable Christian as it is the liberation of the inexperienced Ana, the protagonists have taken on lives of their own for readers who’ve pored over the vulnerabilities of the characters and intricacies of the novels. Through them, audiences have allowed themselves to explore their own inner fantasies and aspirations.

Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (“Nowhere Boy”), this erotic and authentic love story from series creator E L James takes us deep inside a rich and mysterious world that explores frankly the complexities of male-female dynamics, and the limits to which we will allow ourselves to go—and to be taken.

Taylor-Johnson explains, “The fundamental reason why I wanted to make this movie is that it feels like a fairy tale with similar plotlines to things that we grew up with, although in a very adult version: A young girl meets her prince. He’s unavailable. He’s successful, fabulous, rich, but it twists and unfolds and becomes something very different. It’s also the story of this girl on a sexual exploration, a coming-of-age journey.

“In many respects, Christian and Ana’s story is a love story of the most straightforward kind,” she continues. “It’s about two people falling in love and negotiating what they will and won’t do for each other, what they will and won’t give up and what journey they will go on. Within this there are more extremities than a lot of relationships. Ana falls in love with a complicated person for a first romance and a first journey of sexual exploration. For Christian, it’s also what opens him up to start feeling, breathing and learning to love.”

Taylor-Johnson acknowledges that her approach to the material was “to treat this as an extraordinary love story and an extremely unusual and unique one. Going into it, you’re trying to finesse and find delicate, subtle moments where the two of them are starting to shift and change. That is something that has to be so finely tuned throughout the movie to keep everything in line with the journey they go on.”

Opening across the Philippines on Feb. 11, “Fifty Shades of Grey” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures. The film has been classified Rated R-18 (Strictly for Adults) by the MTRCB.


This movie was classified as is and in its entirety with noticeable BLURS and SCREEN BLOCKS introduced by the film producer prior to its submission for review.

The public is advised of scenes of nudity, strong and/or sexual language, and sexual aberrational behavior with elements of bondage, dominance, sadism and masochism. (
