Another Mindanaoan has done it again! Although she didn’t bag any major prize, we should all still be very proud of fellow Mindanaoan Maila Mitra for reaching the semi final round of the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA). This fellow Dabawenya and Ateneo de Davao University alumnae competed in the semifinals of the prestigious event held at Westin Bonaventure, Los Angeles, California, US last July 17, 2009.
WCOPA is also dubbed as the “Hollywood Olympics” or “Talent Olympics.” In 2005, Jed Madela bagged the Grand Champion Vocalist of the World and Grand Champion Performer of the World awards. In 2006, Filipino singing group the Cercado Sisters then bagged the Grand Champion Group Vocalists of the World award.
Congratulations to Maila Manalang-Mitra!
Here’s a video of her singing “One More Time”
