Regardless of all the bashing and criticism she’s been receiving, for bagging perhaps the most coveted role of Darna, few will argue that Liza Soberano is one if not the hottest female celebrity of her generation. With a face that could sell almost any magazine cover, and a disarming smile that could easily charm anyone its no surprise that Liza has been getting endorsements left and right. The most recent is her endorsement of MegaPro Plus Megasound karaoke system, who chose Liza despite not being a professional singer.
According to Andy Co, MP MegaPro Plus Marketing Corporation proprietor and business partner, he believes Liza’s love for singing make her the perfect choice as endorser.
“We chose Liza, not only because we believe that she best represents our brand but also because she embodies the millennial Filipino, ambitious, talented, very hardworking and most importantly — loves to sing in her free time.”
“She may not be a professional singer we saw from her viral youtube videos how much she loves to sing in her free time. And that is what karaoke is all about, MegaPro Plus is not just for professional singers but more for those na mahilig talaga kumanta,” he said.
Liza says is thankful for the opportunity to endorse the brand as “this means that anyone can really sing talaga.”
“I can’t say na I’m the best singer but when I sing with my friends or relatives, or even during shows, I know that I’m having fun. For me, that’s the important thing kasi eh,”
Last year, Liza’s manager Ogie Diaz posted a photo of them visiting the Star Records office confirming that there are actually plans for Liza to record her own album. “Yes, it was said before that I was going to but because I became busy with Dolce Amore and with My Ex and Whys, we weren’t able to push through with it because if ever I were to release an album, I would like to be very hands-on with it. So I’m just waiting for the right time,” Liza told reporters at the MegaPro Plus Megasound trade launch held at the Luxent Hotel in QC.
If and when her album pushes through, Liza says she wants to be hands in all aspects of creating her album. “Kasi it will unleash the other side of me po so I really want it to be special. Hopefully soon, matuloy na po (’yung album),” she said.
And she has the MegaProPLus Megasound karaoke system to help her practice.Liza plans to take formal voice lessons.
If there’s one other thing that Filipinos love besides food and family, it’s singing.
From small gatherings and barangay contests, to reality TV shows and global singing competitions, there is no stage too small, or audience too daunting for us to show off our vocal prowess.
Celebrations are incomplete without a marathon singing session, fiestas only become more festive if there is a singing competition—as if we haven’t had our fill from all those TV shows.
The Filipino’s love for singing has become almost legendary, and in this age of the internet and social media, we have the entire world as our audience.
For many Filipinos, singing has also become a kind of therapy against the everyday stress, and the proliferation of KTV and karaoke bars everywhere—even inside the malls and Family Entertainment Centers is a clear sign of this obsession.
VIDEOKE FOR EVERY FILIPINO FAMILY
This love for singing and videoke is what prompted two friends to start a company that will provide Filipinos with a quality videoke system, complete with the latest features but at a more reasonable price.
Founded by Mr. Kim SungBok and business partners Mr. Jacinto Co and son Mr. Andy Co, MP Megapro Plus Marketing Corporation is one of first local companies to manufacture its own line of karaoke systems.

“Our vision was to spread entertainment throughout the Philippines and truly showcase the Filipinos’ natural festive attitude through singing,” adds Co.
“Filipinos love to be in the spotlight and singing is the perfect way for them to do so. In any get-together, whether it’s an office party or family reunions, singing has always been the best ice breaker. Once someone gets hold of the microphone and starts to sing it sets a positive mood and makes everybody feel more comfortable,” he said.
MP Megapro Plus Marketing Corporation first began to develop and manufacture its own karaoke system in 2006, using Korean engineering technology. The first model they introduced in the market was the MP-100NS DVD system.
