Take note that the Philippines has won more Gold medals than the number of delegates that it has sent to this year’s “Talent Olympics”. The country only participated in the vocals category and 1 delegate for the male model competition.

This is the fourth year that the Philippines captured the WCOPA Grand World Champion award (Grand Champion Performer of the World) since we started participating in 2005. Jed Madela in 2005, Aria Clemente in 2007, Catherine Loria in 2008 and in 2009, it’s Rhap Salazar. 2006 was the only year we did not capture the grand prize.

Seven Filipino performing artists have already won the global competition’s top prizes: Jed Madela (2005 Grand Champion Vocalist of the World), The Cercado Sisters (2006 Grand Champion Group Vocalists of the World), Reymond Sajor (2007 Grand Champion Vocalist of the World), Aria Clemente (2007 Grand Champion Vocalist of the World), Catherine Loria (2008 Grand Champion Vocalist of the World), and Rhap Salazar (2009 Grand Champion Vocalist of the World) and The Young Voices of Negros (2009 Grand Champion Group Vocalists of the World) this year.
