Programme Introduction

Six aspiring singers from across Asia are mentored by music icon Michael Bolton in a series of challenges and vie to be the next Asian singing sensation. The winner will join Michael on the Asian Dream Tour and become a Subaru Ambassador.

Michael Bolton

Michael Bolton

Michael Bolton is a multiple Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and social activist, who has sold more than 65 million records globally and continues to tour the world.

In recognition of his artistic achievements, Michael won two Grammys for Best Pop Male Vocal Performance, six American Music Awards, three Emmy nominations and a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. As a songwriter, he has earned over 24 BMI & ASCAP Awards, including Songwriter of the Year, nine Million-Air awards, and the Hitmakers Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. With nine #1 singles, Michael has seen nine studio albums rank in the Top Ten, including his 28th CD, Songs of Cinema, a tribute to beloved songs from the world’s most iconic films.

Michael has written with some of the greatest talents of our time, including Bob Dylan, Paul Stanley, Lady Gaga, Diane Warren, and David Foster. His songs have been recorded by the likes of KISS, Kanye West, Jay Z, Barbra Streisand, Cher, and Marc Anthony. Continuing to tour the world each year, Michael has performed with legends such as Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Renee Fleming and BB King.

Michael’s songs and performances have been featured in numerous television and film soundtracks, including the Oscar-nominated theme song Go the Distance, from Walt Disney’s blockbuster animated film Hercules, and the recent Russell Crowe film, Fathers & Daughters. He also executive produced the documentary Terror at Home: Domestic Violence in America, and was nominated for an Emmy for writing the title song Tears of The Angels.

Morissette Amon

Morisette Amon

Singer, rapper, dancer, multi-instrumentalist, actress and television personality, multi-talented Morissette first rose to prominence when she finished runner-up on the Philippines’ TV5 Star Factor at the age of 14. Her first self-titled album was a hit and she was awarded the New Female Recording Artist of the Year by the PMPC Star Awards for Music, and Female Artist of the Year on M.O.R. Pinoy Music Awards in the Philippines.

Morrissette’s distinct tone and versatility has been adapted to many music genres. With an extensive, connected range, she transits into other registers smoothly. One of her most distinctive vocal features is her ability to sing in the whistle register with ease. As most of her performances revolved around songs that require powerful belting, she was casted as one of the “Birit” Queens (literally “Belter” Queens) in a Philippines TV program, ASAP. She has sung the theme songs for various movies such as Crazy Beautiful You, and You’re Still the One.

Morissette is also the first Filipino artist to have her own V-Live Channel, a popular South Korean live video streaming service for celebrities.
