PINAY singer Morisette Amon gets a big international break in the new international singing competition, “Asian Dream”, to be launched on August 6, Thursday, 7:25 PM. She'll be the co-host of music icon Michael Bolton, as presented by Subaru Asia. Six talented singers selected from across Asia will compete for a spot in Bolton’s Asian Dream concert tour and as a Subaru ambassador.
The chosen six contestants are Karl Zarate from the Philippines, Becky Yeung from Hong Kong, Linh Tran from Vietnman, Sasha Ka from Thailand, Poova Sri Rama from Malaysia and Tyen Rasif from Singapore.
Over the course of seven episodes, the contestants will be mentored, coached and pushed to the limits by Michael Bolton and co-host Morrisette Amon, along with celebrity guest experts. Across the progressive elimination format, the singers face a wide range of physical and mental challenges that will make or break them, until the final showdown. The winner will perform in the Asian Dream concert tour with Michael Bolton next year.
The show will premiere on AXN, a regional channel that redefines the entertainment experience for discerning audiences through world-class TV programmes. “As a platform that has been home to captivating reality competitions such as “The Amazing Race Asia” and “Asia's Got Talent”, we are proud to partner with Subaru to launch this highly-anticipated show, and are always on the lookout to work with strategic partners and brands that reflect our values and vision of bringing quality content to viewers”, said Ms. Avani Bhanchawat, Vice President, Affiliate, Media & Sponsorship Sales, KC Global Media Asia, which owns AXN.
Multi-Grammy award winner Michael Bolton, who is one of the creators of the show, appears as a resident judge on Asian Dream. He has sold more than 65 million records worldwide, including nine #1 singles, ten Top Ten albums, and over two dozen songwriting awards. He became a viral internet sensation in the Saturday Night Live “Jack Sparrow” video, garnering over 200 million YouTube views. Speaking about his involvement in Asian Dream, Michael said, “I am thrilled to be partnering with Subaru Asia to find some of the best and brightest stars in the region, and helping them rise to their full potential. Although I was signed at the age of 16, it took me eighteen years to breakthrough, so I feel I can relate to these young artists’ aspirations. It takes more than just a great voice or an x-factor to make it in the music business; it also takes commitment and drive, values which we share with my friend and collaborator Glenn Tan.”
“Asian Dream” is produced by Refinery Media in association with Passion Films and will premiere across Asia on Thursday, August 6 at 7.25pm, exclusively on AXN. The episodes are also available online thereafter at www.subaru.asia/asiandream. AXN is available in the Philippines on Cignal Channel 121, SKYcable HD Channel 247, SKYcable SD Channel 49, GSAT Channel 57, and various provincial cable operators nationwide.
