Growing self-confidence, building self-discipline, and learning the art of collaboration are some of the gifts that young singing prodigy Yessha dela Calzada was able to unlock during her stint at the Promil Four i-Shine Talent Camp.

Known for competing on the third season of The Voice Kids Philippines under the team of Lea Salonga, Yessha further rose to fame and was eventually dubbed as “Little Morissette Amon”.

Showing great potential at six years old, she joined the Promil Four i-Shine 4 Talent Camp and emerged as the season’s grand winner. Yessha, now 11, recalls her experience at the Summer Talent Camp and how much it helped her shine not only on stage, but also in life.

“I was enrolled in Performing Arts and was mentored by ate Karylle Tatlonghari. I super enjoyed it because, in line with the lesson and workshop, we had a weekly video challenge.”

Yessha’s parents also played a huge role in making her videos – her mama is in charge of directing and her hair and make-up while her papa is the videographer and editor. “We enjoyed every task because we went to different places/venues that also served as our family bonding.”

In addition to the fond memories that she cherishes, Yessha shares, “the biggest lesson that I learned from Promil Four i-Shine 4 Talent Camp, which I still apply up to now, was to own the stage with my own dashing style.”

There is no doubt that these meaningful experiences that she earned from the camp, along with her parents’ continuous nurturing and support, are paving the way to achieve her dream of becoming a professional singer here and abroad.

“Indeed, Promil Four i-Shine is the best summer talent camp out there because it helps in discovering every child’s gifts and nurtures them through workshops with the country’s mentors, which is a very fun journey and it developed a strong bond between parents and children,” Yessha encourages.

Further proving that i-Shine is not just any other talent camp, prominent i-Shiners also include ‘Little Picasso of the Philippines’ Worth Lodriga, and ‘Little Broadway Diva’ and fellow The Voice Kids Team Lea alumna Esang De Torres.

This year, unlocking gifts for life is the fully digital 8th season of Promil Four i-Shine Talent Camp which offers different camps– Art, Ballet, Dance, Music, and Theater – with activities expertly-designed to nurture your child’s gifts.

Unlocking the new batch of i-Shiners’ gifts are no less than National Artist Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, G-Force’s iconic celebrity choreographer Georcelle Dapat-Sy, award-winning Craftmaster and Papemelroti’s Robert Alejandro and Arts Director Kara Escay, Prima Ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde, and Seasoned thespian and Trumpets president Audie Gemora.

Given the current situation where everyone is urged to stay home for safety reasons, parents can still continue to nurture the gifts through Promil Four’s i-Shine Talent Camp online classes for FREE. To register, visit
