Fun at Westin Bonaventure

I had the opportunity to watch the WCOPA 2009 or World Championship of Performing Arts held at Westin Bonaventure Hotel, Los Angeles, California on July 11-20, 2009. It was participated by 38 countries where they competed on different categories like singing, acting and modeling. The Philippines sent more than 20 delegates with National Director Carlo Orosa and incoming National Director Kitchie Benedicto. It was fun though meeting different people from different countries. I was proud because the Philippines has won as World Champions at Junior category on vocals and group vocals won by Rhap Salazar and The Young Voices of Negros, Philippines. I was in the hotel for the entire week of competition because my brother's son and two daughters were part of the Young Voices of Negros. The group pulled off a surprise in the competition because I believe they were considered as underdogs in the team. Some of these delegates were already considered as "stars" before they joined the competition. The entire week of competition had a lot of pressures for they still have to polish their songs before the competition. Their preparation was short though. The final verdict went on July 17 composed by Hollywood judges in the field of singing, acting and modeling.
