Vote Skarlet as your Philippine IKON!


Got this email from Myra Ruaro aka Skarlet. Let’s support her!

To all my family, friends, work Contacts, batchmates, Supporters and Scenesters:

Skarlet here saying Good Day and Respect to all.

I texted most of you three weeks ago regarding the nomination that i recieved form some Asean countries record label executives who spearheaded IKON.

I was flattered and ecstatic, at first, to be chosen among many Pinoy artists. Now i feel a bit…scared because the nomination is also a competition.

IKON is an Asean Music Initiative conceptualized to promote Asean artists within the region. This is being implemented simultaneously in 3 countries , Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, where professional solo artists and bands vie to represent their respective countries to compete in the regional finals in Malaysia on August 12. The list of nominees are as follows:

SOLO: Grace Nono, Chris Cayzer, Top Suzara, Julianne, Sitti, Noel Cabangon, Vina Morales and Skarlet.

Here’s the IKON Philippihancenes website for more info: http://www.pulse.ph/ikon/
The program will air starting June 24 and will air for 8 weeks every Sunday at 7pm. They will conclude with a live satellite telecast from Malaysia to watch our representatives vie for the championship.

The judges for this competition are The legendary Wally Gonzales, Vince Parr of WOLFPAC and Mr Eugene Villaluz.

Results will be based on 60% Judges’ choice and 40% ( aaaaargh!!!!) text votes. This criteria is only in effect in the Philippines. The ASEAN Grand Finals on Aug12 will be solely based on TALENT.

i joined this competition for only one reason…to grab this chance for my music to be heard
outside the country. As an independent artist, I can’t afford an Asia-wide media and online promotion like what IKON’s offering. i have never even travelled outside the country, there were many offers though, but they want me to sing other artists'(pop music) songs that’s why i declined many times.

As a musician/singer, I’ve always aimed to primarily,make original compositions not just for pure self-expression but songs that would hopefully break in the international market and secondly, live performances that are tight and world-class.I attached 2 of my original compositions for those who haven’t heard my new album.

There are 550 million music audience in the ASEAN region. If you find reason to believe in my music to be heard by 550 million people, i humbly ask for your support to choose me to represent the Philippines to the ASEAN competition in malaysia on Aug12. I don’t have major-label machinery backing, no big network behind me, no manager, no hordes of screaming fans either. I have my indie label’s support, myself and hopefully your support. Send this email to all of your contacts with your endorsement and tell something about me and my music to all your family members, friends, colleagues, forum members and to everyone you know.

Starting this Sunday at 8pm until July 27 midnight, PLEASE VOTE BY TEXTING, Ikon 25 Skarlet to 2861 (Smart, Globe&Sun subscribers) . Multiple bulk voting is highly encouraged.

My album, Skarlet: The Powder room Stories, is available nationwide.

Thank you very much,

    skarlet is good. sitti is the worst artist sa ikon philippines. la syang mapakitang iba bukod sa tunog nyang ipis na boses. sa mga taga laguna kahit sino lang manalo wag lang yung sitti!

    vina is good. she is a total performer. nakakaexcite sya mapanood dahil di mo ma predict kung sasayaw ba sya o kakanta. grace nono is good kc she represents our culture by her music. julianne is good as well. she writes her songs,she plays the guitar,she sings so well. skarlet is good. she plays with notes. she is an amazing artist. but i also agree that sitti is the worst. she is not a composer,she doesnt write her songs,she is a worst dancer as well at she sings like a chipmunk or an insect true talaga! sa mga taga bacoor cavite dapat na syang mapaalis! everyone is deserving to win except sa kanya!
