HOW TO VOTE? CLICK ON THIS LINK–>VOTE POP SWEETHEART LIRAH!

Protégé: Battle for the Big Break is on its final streak this week, with the finale night set December 18.

This is the final battle for our Pop Sweetheart Lirah, whose raw singing talent has been polished by no less than her mentor Janno Gibbs. Lirah is now the shining shimmering star of GMA Protege.

We also acknowledge the efforts of the GMA Protégé people and all those who are involved in honing Pop Sweetheart Lirah to becoming the star singer/performer that she is now.

A BATTLE OF TALENTS

The GMA Protégé The Final Battle is so far the toughest stage of the Protege contest that Lirah will go through. There will be three rounds slated in the Protégé season’s finale.

Whatever the Protégé The Final Battle dynamics would be, let us be reminded that Protégé is a Battle for the Big Break.

The Protege is is not a battle of sad stories. It is a battle for real deal singing and performing talent. Lirah is out to show her best to win the big break despite the sad events that surrounded her at the start of Protege: Battle for the Big Break.

LIRAH’S SAD STORY IS A SURE WINNER

The Filipino people won’t hesitate showing sympathy to the underdog. It cannot be denied that Protege contestants are in a way gaining sympathy votes through their sad stories.

If GMA Protégé would go down to be a battle of sad stories, then who can beat the sad story of Lirah Bermudez?

On her way to the final audition stage, Toto, her younger brother passed away. Her family struggled financially as they went about seeking remedy for the ailment of Lirah’s little brother.?

DON’T GIVE UP ON US POP SWEETHEART LIRAH

In 2008, Lirah’s younger brother, Toto did an intermission number during a University Day contest at Central Philippine University. The event was held at Rose Memorial Auditorium where around 3,000 students, parents, faculty and staff watched.

Toto sang David Soul’s “Don’t Give Up On Us”. While the song speaks about a Romantic relationship, let us allow ourselves to interpret Toto’s singing as his encouragement to Pop Sweetheart Lirah…DON’T GIVE UP!

Don’t miss watching Toto sing “Don’t Give Up…”. Click the play button of the video below!

SUPPORT LIRAH BERMUDEZ. LET’S VOTE FOR HER ON SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18.

Why should the Protégé Nation vote for Pop Sweetheart Lirah?

With information from Lynna Joy Bermudez Cardinal

The 7th Elimination Night on Sunday, December 11, 2011 revealed the final three contestants for the Protege: Battle of the Big Break. Pop Sweetheart Lirah sang a mashup of “Paglisan” (Color It Red) / “Habang May Buhay” (Afterimage).

Again, the Protege Nation voted for who will comprise the top three Protege contestants. Pop Sweetheart Lirah Bermudez made it to the final three.

Why should the Protege Nation vote for Pop Sweetheart Lirah? Here are the reasons:

LIRAH IS MULTI-TALENTED

Lirah sings, performs, plays musical instruments and composes songs. We have yet to see other Proteges do what Lirah is doing in the gala nights and other GMA performances. Lirah’s performance on December 4 was quite redemption of her being rated at the bottom on November 27. Watch her video below:

SHE MADE IT TO TOP 5 DESPITE LESS PRESENCE OF MENTOR JANNO GIBBS

Notice how mentors Jaya and Aiza are much focused (tutok na tutok) on coaching and building up Lovely and Kriza, respectively.

Janno’s absence from mentoring Lirah was the subject of pokes and comments by Protégé judges. Still, Lirah weathered all challenges and come out as a very strong contender.

POP SWEETHEART LIRAH HAS LOTS OF SHOWBIZ POTENTIALS

She can be a VJ, she can act, host, and she can be a commercial model. Although she comes from the province in the Visayas, Tagalog and English languages are not a problem with her. She has good English diction and pronunciation. Further coaching and training would enhance her other potentials.

In three months of Protégé: Battle for the Big Break, inside Protégé and the weekly contest episodes, Lirah Bermudez has garnered many fans nationwide and abroad.

There are 14 fan pages and group accounts at Facebook and one blog that are dedicated to supporting Lirah Bermudez.

She consistently top polls that are put up by Protégé: Battle for the Big Break organization and other Protégé show followers.

On Sunday, during the Protégé: Battle for the Big Break weekly elimination night, let us vote for Pop Sweetheart Lirah Bermudez.

The poster below gives clear instructions on how to vote Lirah Bermudez.
