A new child wonder is born as Promil Pre-School i-Shine Talent Camp 2 concluded last June 27 and announced four-year-old Yesha Camile, the “Incredible Drama Princess” of Davao, as the Grand i-Shiner, and also the Top i-Shiner for acting.
Aside from a total of Php 500,000.00 cash prize, Yesha Camile also received a talent contract from ABS-CBN’s talent management arm, Star Magic and Promil Pre-School, and a year supply of Promil Pre-School products.
Yesha Camile, who just turned four last June 26, is the youngest among the contestants or the i-Shiners. Asked if she expected to win, the witty kid said, “Yes, I already know that I will win because I really want to be the Grand i-Shiner.”
JM Andres, the “Exceptional Hiphop Dancer” and Nathan Bautista, the “Electrifying Junior Rocker”, both seven years old and from Cavite, meanwhile, were hailed as the Top i-Shiner for dancing and singing respectively, and took home Php 200,000.00 each.
This season, the program was divided into three main performing categories – singing, dancing and acting. Each category consists of four i-Shiners mentored by Pinky Amador, Georcelle Dapat-Sy and Piolo Pascual.
During the grand finale, the i-Shiners showed their exceptional talent and full confidence as they shared the stage and performed with their talented mentors.
The 12 finalists underwent more than two months of development program, workshops and trainings and these were aired on ABS-CBN every Saturday morning.
Winners were determined based on text votes (30%) and scores by judges from ABS-CBN and Wyeth Nutrition management (70%).
Already on its second year, Promil Pre-School i-Shine Talent Camp, hosted by Dimples Romana, Matteo Guidecelli and Xian Lim, aims to discover the most talented kids in the country with ages 3 to 7 and hone their gifts to excellence with their parents.
Last year, Lukas Enrique Magallano, the “Acoustic Kid of Cebu,” seven years old then, took home the first Grand i-Shiner title.
Promil Pre-School is a nutritious powdered milk drink for children 4 to 7 years old, which contains Nutrissentials – a unique combination of essential nutrients plus DHA & AA that help optimize a child’s full potential.
