There is certainly no stopping 12-year old singer/actress Aria Clemente in making a name for herself in local show biz especially after winning Over-all Junior Grand Champion of the World at the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in Hollywood, USA last August. The talented young girl has since been besieged with television, recording, theater, product endorsement, and corporate show projects.
Aria, for instance, is currently taping for ABS CBNâs upcoming comedy-serye âPare Koy,â which stars veteran actors Dennis Padilla and Techie Agbayani, Zanjoe Marudo and John Pratts (who plays Ariaâs eldest brother in the show). Randy Santiago directs âPare Koyâ to be aired on weekdays in the afternoon.
Aria also has waxed a single for Kris Aquinoâs âLove and Inspirationâ album, a fitting follow-up to certified Platinum âSongs of Healingâ album released some months ago. Produced and arranged by Ito Rapadas with vocal coaching by Carlo Orosa, Ariaâs version of âClimb Every Mountainâ offers a fresh attack to this classic piece from the hit Broadway and film musical, âThe Sound of Music.â Apparently, âLove and Inspirationâ album turned gold on its first week of release.
The young singing champ was also part of the successful Manila run of Off-Broadway hit musical, âChildrenâs Letters to God.â
Moreover, Aria has been tapped to sign a multimedia co-management deal with Viva Entertainment, which is interested in honing her as the next TV, film, and recording star. Kids Bayo, Ariaâs clothes sponsor, is also eyeing her for possible endorsement deals.
Aria, alongside 2007 WCOPA Grand Champion Senior Vocalist of the World, Reymond Sajor, were main performers at the formal launch of the Philippinesâ largest convention center, SM Groupâs SMX Convention Center strategically located at the Mall of Asia complex. Vice President Noli de Castro, and tycoons Henry Sy, Hans Sy and Jaime Zobel de Ayala were in attendance.
