BATANGAS – El Gamma Penumbra, who won the top prize at the very first “Asia’s Got Talent” last Thursday, wants to set up a shadow dance studio for talented but less fortunate kids.

In a press conference after their motorcade in Batangas on Saturday, the group said they will use their cash prize from the pan-regional talent search to put up the dance school in order to encourage the youth to develop a hobby and stay away from drugs.

El Gamma Penumbra also promised to continue helping two homes for the aged in Tanauan and Lipa in Batangas as part of their advocacy.

Furthermore, they plan to start a foundation to provide assistance to the elderly who are in charity homes and to train kids gifted with the talent of singing and dancing.

Asked if they can perform in social gatherings, members of El Gamma Penumbra said they already received numerous invitations from different companies and announced that they have prepared a lot of routines enough to perform in various shows.

Meanwhile, the parents of the group's members also thanked the public for voting.

Their parents said they are grateful to those who helped the group, who were just simple teenagers who were into hip-hop before they won the Asian talent contest.
