MANILA - There is no stopping a singing group composed of four siblings from Santiago City from conquering the world with their powerful vocals.
Siblings Mylene, Irene, Celina and Almira once conquered the hearts of the "madlang people" when they won the grand prize on the noontime show, It's Showtime back in 2012 as the Gollayan Sisters.
The following year, they represented the Philippines and brought home the title of Senior Grand Champion Vocal Group of the World at the 17th Annual World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in the US.
Now, the sisters are setting their sights on South Korea. They made it to the audition of Superstar K6, a reality talent show contest in Korea.
"When we were little we were just watching videos of KPop. After school, we go straight to the house and form our dances, form our vocals by our own. We thought this was just our bonding moment," the group said in a video interview on their flight to South Korea.
Now called MICA, which stands for the first letters of their names, the siblings described themselves as KPop and Korean drama fanatics.
Their favorite performer is Korean-American singer Ailee, who happened to one of the judges in the competition.
"For us she's like the Beyonce of Korea. We idolize her. We didn't know that she's one of the judges. We've been watching her videos on YouTube and now were here," the sisters said.
They performed one of Ailee's hits to the delight of the Korean singer.
"I'm really impressed that you guys harmonized everything. Had everything on point, it really, really moved me. By far the most amazing rendition I've ever heard. Thank you so much," Ailee said.
Aside from Ailee’s song, the group also performed their rendition of ‘Let It Go’ from the popular Disney movie Frozen.
The sisters said joining Superstar K is not a joke for them.
"It's like a very huge competition in Asia. Being part of this is like a dream come true. we can share our talents to the whole world," they said.
