LIRAH BERMUDEZ performed greatly in the FIRST PROTEGE LIVE GALA NIGHT on Sunday, October 16 at the SM Mall of Asia Centerstage. It was broadcast live via GMA 7 right after Kap’s Amazing Stories.
Among the Protege contestants, Lirah is the only protege who sings while playing an instrument, her guitar. She also can play the piano.
At a young age, Lirah showed singing prowess and guitar playing skills. Through Protégé, she hopes to realize her greatest wish, to become a singing star at 13 years old.
This is a nationwide singing competition involving 10 mentors and the chosen 10 protégés that judges picked.
Judges chose Lirah Bermudez as the final protégée from Iloilo, besting two other Ilonggo region finalists. Now, she is competing with nine other protégé from different provinces or regions of the Philippines.
Her foremost desire why she joined the contest was to help her sick brother. Unfortunately, her brother died of brain tumor a month ago.
Despite the tragedy, Lirah Bermudez decided to continue competing as a tribute to her dear little brother.
Also, she sees the Protégé competition as venue to unfold and make known her singing potential. Lirah acknowledges that her singing prowess is a gift from God.
