Manila, Philippines – February 10, 2017 – Audio Video Solutions Corporation, has chosen Jesse and Christian Perkins, more popularly know as the Perkins Twins, as Brand Endorsers for both Grand Videoke and LD Systems.

 

As the leading player in the home karaoke industry, Grand Videoke chose to partner with the talented pop duo, originally from California. According to Olive S. Dimaranan, EVP for Consumer Division, “We love what the Perkins Twins represent. They are devout Christians who possess strong family values and moral convictions. This is perfect as Grand Videoke is a great instrument that brings families closer by promoting more fun and joy at home."

 

Another brand that the twins will be endorsing is LD Systems, a German pro audio brand. "We love the twins' attention to detail and professionalism, not to mention they're very talented musicians and performers as well. Having them as voices for LD Systems will definitely help the brand reach a wider audience.", Dimaranan said.

 

The Perkins Twins, still in the middle of a series of mall and school tours, had this say: “We have always loved doing karaoke with the whole family, especially during gatherings, and Grand Videoke is by far the best system we have ever used. LD Systems, on the other hand, produces the best pro audio systems around. This will help us spread our advocacy and message more clearly. This is a perfect partnership and we're so excited to be able to promote these two awesome brands."

Queen Pia Sings Confidently Beautiful With a Heart

miss-universe-01Our Philippine pride, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was given a touching musical tribute a few days before she relinquishes her crown as the reigning Miss Universe. Her struggles as a breadwinner, a showbiz personality and a successful pageant queen were set into music and performed by the theater group, Stages.

 

One of the ancillary events of the 65th Miss Universe Pageant, Queen of the Universe: A Tribute to Pia Wurtzbach was held at the Harbor Tent of the Sofitel Philippine Plaza, CCP Complex. The 86 candidates vying for the title of Miss Universe were also present in the event.  

 

Aside from the musical, the beautiful ladies and guests were treated to good food and fun activities, such as the #SingConfidentlyBeautiful Challenge courtesy of Grand Videoke, the country's leading videoke brand.

 

This challenge was essentially a group singing competition, participated by 3 teams, all comprised of this year's Miss Universe candidates. The rules were simple: each team must pick a song, sing it until the first chorus, and the group with the highest score wins.

The most memorable moment came midway during the final group's performance. To everyone's surprise, the Queen herself, Pia Wurtzbach, joined Miss Ecuador Connie Jimenez, Miss Guyana Soyini Fraser, Miss Jamaica Isabel Dalley, Miss British Virgin Islands Erica Creque, and Miss Paraguay Andrea Melgarejo, in singing Rihanna's "We Found Love". This led to the delight of the more than 300 people in attendance!

 

Probably inspired by the crowd, the ladies from this group received a near-perfect score of 99 and eventually emerged as winners of the challenge. Each member of the team received a Grand Videoke unit as prize.

 

Pia, coaxed by the excited crowd, gave her own rousing rendition of the Taylor Swift hit “Shake It Off”. This to the further delight and elation of the well-dressed crowd. After the performance, the host awarded Pia with a Grand Videoke unit of her own.

 

"Pia has given us so much pride and joy to our nation, and we're just glad that we are able to honor and thank her for what she's done", says Johenson Tan, Marketing Manager of Grand Videoke. "This is also our chance to showcase to the world our culture and our passions. And when we talk about passion, I don't think there's anyone more passionate about singing, than us Filipinos", he added.

Sing B4 U Buy: The Smarter Way to Choose a Videoke System

singb4ubuy

 

Now, if you're on the market for a new videoke device, choosing the right one can be daunting. The simple truth is, not all videoke machines are created equal.


For this reason, Grand Videoke, the leading name in the industry, mounted an advocacy called Sing B4 U Buy. The message is simple but important. Sing B4 U Buy encourages consumers to properly and thoroughly experience first-hand a videoke system before making a purchase. With that, Grand Videoke also gives some practical pointers for you to check for:

 

1. Check the Song Library

While some claim to have thousands and thousands of songs, you'll be surprised to find out that a huge number of songs are actually duplicated - not just once but sometimes up to four times! With the Grand Videoke PLUS series, you get an extensive library of more than 6,000 built-in songs. No song is duplicated, no public domain songs included. All tracks are handpicked favorites - songs you actually want to sing!

 

2. How Quickly Can You Find Songs?

Song searching can be a tedious process. While some videoke machines now offer on-screen searching through a remote control, this is still far from a seamless process. To remedy this, Grand Videoke Symphony 2.0 PLUS the flagship of the series, offers the GeeVee™ Voice Command feature. By simply speaking the song title directly to your microphone, you can find your favorite song in just about 5 seconds.

 

3. What is the Type of Storage Used?

Often ignored but no doubt one of the most important, the storage system used can determine the longevity of the device. External storage options such as optical discs (CDs or DVDs) and SD cards are more prone to damage and data corruption. That's why, Grand Videoke PLUS uses an internal memory storage system that is more secure. That means more peace of mind for you.

 

4. How is the Song Quality?

A well-produced song is one that lets you hear the beautiful harmonious details. Grand Videoke PLUS, with its dedicated Dream Sound Module, is able to produce high-definition sound. Much care was devoted to song production, with some even featuring full orchestral accompaniment and back-up singers. It's like starring in your major concert right at the comforts of your home.

 

5. How is the Vocal Quality?

A good microphone must be able to reproduce your voice naturally and clearly. The Grand Videoke PLUS wireless microphone utilizes cardioid pro audio technology tuned for vocals. The result is clearer voice reproduction and better voice pick-up. Singing becomes an effortless and confidence-inspiring experience.

 

6. Is it Well-Designed?

The words "sophistication" and "videoke" doesn't always go together. But Grand Videoke PLUS is set to change that perception. With its steam-injected piano black finish, the Grand Videoke PLUS exudes a premium look and feel. The unique clarinet-inspired wireless microphone is iconic - a conversation piece in and of itself.

 

Be smart and choose the right videoke brand that will bring you more #GrandMoments. Sing B4 U Buy!
