Pop Sweetheart Lira is a Compassionate Protégé

Watching Lirah on Inside Protégé, interacting and relating with co-Protégé contestants, one could readily conclude that Lirah is not only out to win top places in the Protégé.

Lirah Bermudez is championing friendship inside Protégé. Her caring heart towards other Protégé aspirants shows the good inner character of Lirah.

Take time to watch the video of Lirah playing the piano and singing the song she wrote for Nomer. Wow…I’m amazed by what Lirah can do. Knowing how to play the guitar and piano at a young age despite the odds, Lirah has got the talent!

Have fun listening to Lirah giving advice to Nomer through a song… “…bata intindihin ang pag-aaral mo…huwag magpadala sa puso mo.”

Certainly, Lirah Bermudez has enthralled her admirers not only through her singing and playing instruments but also for her being compassionate. She makes effort to take care of a younger Protégé, helping him take his vitamins and prepare him to take a bath.

Last week, inside the Protégé quarters, amidst the conflicts that arose among the other Protégé aspirants, Lirah stayed cool. She’s everybody’s friend.

Lirah is very kind. Thus, Lirah’s behavior inside the Protégé quarters is also natural of her. She was seen in two occasions comforting co-Protégé who’s crying.

Many adored Pop Sweetheart Lirah for her being compassionate. With Lira showing grace under pressure, sharing friendliness and humility, she is showing what it means to have the heart of a champion.

The people’s support is overwhelming. She has already gained so many fans nationwide and all over the world.

See what the followers of Lirah Bermudez are doing to inspire her to always give the best performance.

Lirah Bermudez – Protege's Pop Sweetheart reaps votes and praises in 1st Elimination Night

By Lynna Joy Bermudez Cardinal

Lirah Bermudez gave a very splendid rendition of “Price Tag” that generated high number of votes during the Protege First Elimination Night on October 23.

Lirah’s text votes pushed her to the top moments after her excellent performance. Entertainment guru, Joey de Leon, one of Protege’s three talented and popular judges, commented that Lirah is a sure upcoming star whether or not she wins Protege.

Central Philippine University Blog

Commenting on Lirah’s performance, Joey de Leon remarked, “Mina-mani mani mani mo lang Lirah…” alluding to Price Tag’s lyrics “..money, money, money…” but he probably meant “peanuts”, a slang for “having little or no importance; insignificant”.

Colloquially, especially in the Ilonggo region where Lirah hails, Joey de Leon’s comment means Lirah did an easy, relaxed, and enjoyable performance.

The result made Lirah Bermudez move to the next round together with the remaining eight protégés.

Janno Gibbs did well in mentoring Lirah. Let us continue to support Lirah Bermudez and her mentor’s efforts.

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.

Bringing pride to Iloilo and Capiz, her hometown, Lirah is also raising the banner for Central Philippine University.

She came from a family of Centralians. Her mother, Del-rah May Endriga is a Centralian, an Alma Mater Awardee.

Her Centralian grandparents are Hector Bermudez (BSA), Evelyn Bermudez-Plappert (BSN), Eleanor Bermudez-Gange (BSN), Rolando Gange (BSME), Linnie Rose Alerta-Palabrica (BSE), Luz Perez-Alerta (BSN).
