Filipino singer Giuliana Chiong is set to represent the Philippines in the Chinese singing competition Rising Voice.

The show, particularly its audition process, focuses on discovering talented young singers. It aims to nurture their skills and potential with the help of music tutors, while also encouraging a love and interest in music. Additionally, it provides a platform for them to further explore the musical world.

Unlike typical singing competitions, Rising Voice prioritizes both vocal talent and artistic development. Launched in 2023, the show has already aired 26 episodes, attracting singers not just from the Philippines, but also from Malaysia and Singapore.

“It’s a huge honor,” 13-year-old Giuliana told Manila Standard Entertainment. “There’s nothing more rewarding than representing your country and showcasing your talent as a Filipino.”

Hailing from Ozamis City, Misamis Occidental, Giuliana rose to prominence as a contestant in The Voice Kids Philippines Season 5. Joining Team Martin Nievera (“MarTeam”), she impressively reached the semifinals in her very first singing competition.

“Singing is my passion,” Giuliana admitted, “and I think I inherited that love of music from my mom. I’m actually writing my own songs now, but I’m not quite confident enough to share them publicly yet. Maybe someday soon.”

Giuliana cites Billie Eilish and Zack Tabudlo as her musical inspirations.

Priscila Teo of the Singapore-based Academy of Rock, impressed by Giuliana’s performance in The Voice, encouraged her to audition for Rising Voice.

Just this March, Giuliana joined Cornerstone Entertainment, a leading Filipino multimedia entertainment agency. Cornerstone is known for its talent management arm, which represents world-class singers like Erik Santos, Moira Dela Torre, Yeng Constantino, and more.
