Sparkle’s GMA Artist Center – Kapuso Network’s talent management arm – has welcomed This Generation’s Pop Princess Zephanie Dimaranan into the roster of talents.
“I hope to build new relationships and new adventures,” said Zephanie, when asked about her expectations on GMA Network, during a media conference held at B Hotel in Quezon City recently.
Having already performed in stages and arenas locally and abroad, released a commercially successful full-length album, endorsed big brands, graced the covers of magazines, and became the Grand Champion of Idol Philippines, one could easily argue that she’s already achieved what many can only dream of.
What makes the more impressive however is that she hasn’t even turned 20 yet. It’s safe to say that things are just getting started for the sparkling young star.
“We are excited to welcome another bright, shining star to Sparkle. Zephanie is known for her beautiful and powerful voice, disarming smile, and great personality. She is a popular product endorser and a strong social media celebrity with millions of views and followers. Sparkle is so proud to have her as part of our growing family and wish her the best of luck and lots of exciting projects at GMA,” said Mr. Johnny Manahan.
Gigi S. Lara, Senior Assistant Vice-President for Alternative Productions, added: “We are happy to welcome Zephanie to the Sparkle family. She will be singing the summer theme for Sparkle, so we hope everyone will watch out for that. Her Kapuso family is also excited to welcome Zephanie in ‘All Out Sundays.’ We really want to harness the powerhouse talent of Zephanie, to watch her grow as an artist, and to see her in more programs and projects in GMA.”
Zephanie said that she has been preparing for his journey into the Sparkle GMA Artist Center family.
“Eversince last year, hindi na kami tumitigil sa workshops like acting, singing, and dancing. Even emotional and mental preparations So matindihang preparation po ito para kahit na ano mang opportunity ang dumating, handa po tayo.”
Zephanie is co-managed by Cornerstone Entertainment, where she first got to hone and expand her talents as a performer.
“We are excited Zephanie will shine even more with our new partnership with Sparkle. Looking forward to new possibilities and platforms where Zephanie can showcase her talents,” said Jeff Vadillo, Vice President of Cornerstone Entertainment.
Asked about the artists she wants to work with on GMA Network, Zephanie said: “Ang dami pong magagaling na artists sa GMA. I hope to work with Julie Anne San Jose, Lani Misalucha, Christian Bautista, ilan lang po sila. Gusto ko rin maka-work yung mga teen stars.”
Zephanie also said that she may explore acting, but not at the moment. “Hopefully soon.”
“Sa lahat ng patuloy na sumusuporta sa journey ko, maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat. I appreciate each and every one of you. I promise to do my best in my latest journey and kasama ko po kayo roon,” she added.
