There’s no reason for them to hide behind the shadows.

Filipino shadow play group El Gamma Penumbra of Tanauan, Batangas, was crowned the first ever grand champion of “Asia’s Got Talent” during the results show held at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore on Thursday.

As grand winner, El Gamma won $100,000 (P4.4 million) and a chance to perform at Marina Bay Sands.

The group said they will share the prize with their family and chosen charity.

“Sa mga pamilya po naming para makatulong para makaahon po sa kahirapan. Pangalawa po, ‘yong charity po na madalas naming puntahan , ‘yong Home for the Aged sa Tanuan City Batangas…parang pagbabalik ng blessing na ibinigay po samen kaya pupunta kami dun. Pangatlo po, gusto po sana naming magtayo ng bagong studio para po mas maganda ung rehearsal namin kasi nagrerenta lang po kami,” said one member in an interview with the news program “Bandila.”

Asked what they would want to accomplish next, the lead member said: “Gusto po naming libutin ang buong mundo para makapagbigay pa kami ng inspirasyon hindi lamang sa mga Pilipino, hindi lang sa mga Asyano, pero sa buong mundo. Gusto naming mag-perform nang mag-perform at mabigyan sila ng ngiti at ng saya.”

El Gamma topped eight other grand finalists, which included three other Filipino acts, namely 10-year-old songstress Gwyneth Dorado, classical diva Gerphil Flores and hip-hop dance group Junior New System… see more
