Our friends at Intel Philippines aren’t just hard workers; they’re also pretty good at letting down their hair. They’ve just wrapped the second edition of their highly popular Sing to Win video-making contest.
This year’s tilt was won by Asia Pacific College senior Shobert Hallig, who’s pursuing a degree in Multimedia Arts, for his rendition of the classic Aerosmith hit ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing’. Nikki Mae Ilagan, Florabel Hernandez, Stephanie Deuda and Leonahlyn Drilon of De La Salle University – Dasmarinas came second with their take on Trisha Yearwood’s ‘How do I Live’, and Polytechnic University of the Philippines student Felicidad Olituquit, who sang a rendition of Maroon 5′s ‘Moves Like Jagger’, won third place. Each of the finalists took home Ultrabooks powered by the latest Intel Core processors.
In the five-month run-up period to the finals, Sing to Win 2 was heavily touted on Facebook. Intel also took the campaign to 10 universities, including De La Salle University, Adamson University, the University of Santo Tomas and Centro Escolar University and three major malls across the Philippines. Intel also revealed its partnership with GMA7, signing on young celebrities Alden Richards and Louise delos Reyes as its campaign ambassadors.
During these roadshows, students were also given the chance to express their creativity and style through using some of Intel’s technologies to help record videos and edit them. Those who crafted the most creative and entertaining videos won new Intel-powered notebooks.
Consequently, Sing to Win 2 enjoyed the lively participation of more than 80 college students or groups of students. They competed in the contest by crafting their own music video renditions of five songs, which, aside from those performed by the winners, included another hit by Maroon 5 (“I Won’t Go Home Without You”) and one by Vanessa Carlton (‘A Thousand Miles’).
Congratulations to all the winners of Sing to Win 2, and hats off to Intel Philippines for a job well done!
