The search for the first-ever Cartoon Network Rockstar came into conclusion as an eight-year-old kid recently bagged the most coveted title. The announcement took place at the Cartoon Network Rockstar Christmas held at Robinson’s Magnolia in Quezon City.
Cartoon Network names its first Pinoy Rockstar
Talented Marcus Raydel Cabais was named the first-ever Cartoon Network Rockstar and the contest’s grand prize winner. He got an all-expense paid trip for four to Cartoon Network Amazone waterpark in Thailand. He also secured a five-year talent management contract with Viva Artists Agency to jumpstart a career in the country’s entertainment industry.
At the event’s venue, hundreds of kids got the chance to show off their talents. They also got to mingle with their favorite Cartoon Network characters. The Christmas event was also the culmination of a month’s search for the craziest and wildest talent.
The attendees and guests enjoyed a number of activities that allowed them to be a rockstar for the day. Some kids tried pumping it up in a dance and guitar battle. Others got to practice their pipes at the karaoke station before belting it out on stage. They also had a makeover as a true-blooded rock star ready to rock in the red carpet. Balloon headdresses and instruments were also made available to complete the look.
Cartoon Network Rockstar Christmas Party
More than the chance to express their talents, the Cartoon Network Rockstar Christmas event provided a platform for kids to have fun with their family. It also serves as a stepping stone to aspiring kids wanting a career in show business.
Throughout the whole event, Cartoon Network mascots performed much to the delight of the kids. Celebrity mom Camille Prats with son Nathan also joined in the fun. Special guests include Teacher Georcelle of G-Force dance troupe and Sienna Olaso, a pillar to Batibot’s cast. Now, Olaso happens to be Cignal’s Vice President for Programming and Channel Management.
The merriment ended with most participants happy with the exclusive Cartoon Network merchandise and toys they got to bring home.
