True to its tradition as the first broadcast station to herald the Yuletide Season in the country, TV5 levels up its Christmas campaign this November with the Metro-wide “Sama-Samang Tinig ng Pasko” chorale competition to be held in a series of barangay showdowns in Manila, Valenzuela, Quezon City, and Marikina.
TV5 has stood by its thrust of being the catalyst for people to come together and the launch of this Barangay Chorale Showdown has brought out the idea of “Iba ang Saya, Pag Sama Sama” beyond a catchy phrase on paper. Now that the holidays are fast approaching, TV5 culminates this merry season by offering these communities a chance to spread love and joy with their friends, family, and loved ones through this traditional competition that signifies how this Christmas is better celebrated together.
The public is invited to what promises to be a trade fair-like event featuring some of Metro Manila’s finest chorale groups in competition for the Grand Prize of P300,000. The contest finale will be held at Ayala Malls Feliz on December 17 with some of TV5’s stars and talents in attendance. The winning chorale group will also be performing live at one of the scheduled games of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).
Ten groups started competing at each site and two winners were selected in each of the barangay legs of the chorale competition. Judges came from local government officials (LGU) and celebrity guests. A guest judge also performed to delight the home crowd and honor all chorale participants.
The five-leg competition will culminate at the Grand Finals at Ayala Malls Feliz on December 17 with a finale sing-out among the top eight winners from the four barangay contests held earlier. The top 3 winning groups will receive P300,000 plus PBA singing appearance for the 1st Prize; P150,000 for the 2nd Prize; and P100,000 for 3rd Prize. All the other finalists get P10,000 each.
“Sama-Samang Tinig ng Pasko” is one of the September–December tentpole activities for the 2022 Christmas Campaign created by the Kapatid Network to sustain the festivities and brand presence for TV5.
In 2021, TV5 owned Christmas by being the first network to celebrate Christmas at the onset of the “Ber Months.” The Christmas theme of this year’s festivities is centered on TV5’s core thematic message of “Iba’ng saya Pag Sama-Sama!”
