Last October 16, five finalists for Costa Coffee’s Sing Your Way To London contest battled it out at Costa Coffee Robinsons Galleria. The competition was originally inspired by the vlogger Vince Vandorpe. He impressed Costa Coffee baristas while singing a British classic at the counter, winning a free cup of coffee in the process. Soon after, Costa Coffee launched a social media search calling for aspirants to send in a video of them singing a British song. This time though, the stakes are higher. The winner gets an all-expense paid trip for 2 to London!
Judging the finals were social media influencer David Guison and singer siblings Paolo and Kiana Valenciano. Since there was no school that day due to the transport strike, I had some free time so I got to see the final round. The criteria for judging included voice and presentation skills, audience response, and adherence to the British theme.
In the end, Jyl Orila, who sang “Send My Love To Your New Lover” by Adele, bagged the grand prize. Jyl will be flying to London with her mom for the experience of a lifetime!
