Regal Entertainment president and eminent star-maker Mother Lily Monteverde has been part of the success of many of the industry’s biggest stars. Now, she, together with her daughter and Regal Entertainment vice president Roselle Monteverde, continues to discover a new string of talented young stars as she includes the two winners of SM Little Stars as official talents of her company.
A bright future in show business is ahead of SM Little Stars 2019 Boy and Girl Grand winners Nyle Quinzel Tapdasan of SM City North EDSA and Danaielle Haley Magtoto of SM City East Ortigas after they signed an exclusive management and movie contract with Regal Artist Entertainment.
Tapdasan and Magtoto were hailed as the winners during the grand finals, held at the SMX Convention Center in the MOA Complex, Pasay. Both of them played the piano beautifully during the competition. Magtoto is also a talented singer.
“I feel happy because I’ve never joined any contest before and I have never signed any contract. This is the first time I will go on TV and movie so that makes me happy,” said 8-year-old Tapdasan.
“I am also happy because it has been my dream to be famous,” added Magtoto. “I want to be a pianist when I grow up. I also want to be an artist and a singer.”
Now on its thirteenth year, SM Little Stars continues to be a platform for kids to share talents, enhance their personalities, and develop their confidence. The competition not only recognizes the shining and brightest kids, but it also celebrates the start of their journey in becoming stars in the future as they inspire more children to discover their innate talent.
Aside from the contract, they also received a full scholarship grant of any 4-year course at National University, five-days and four-nights trip to China for two, P100,000 worth of cash and SM gift certificates, a brand new Chevrolet Sail, a two-night stay for two with buffet breakfast at Taal Vista Hotel, P30,000 worth of Toy Kingdom Gift Cards, and year-round passes for SM Bowling, SM Ice Skating and SM Storyland.
