TV5's newest and biggest nationwide musical reality search, KantaPilipinas believes in the talent of the Filipino.
While the news reports the damages of calamity brought by floods previously hit Cagayan de Oro, the faith of the Filipino to lift spirits up should be promoted to push recovery and strength of the region.
TV5 calls on the nation to sing with KantaPilipinas, which is set to hold its first on-ground audition at SM City Cagayan de Oro on February 24 as the beginning of its series of auditions tour in the entire country.

It is open to all genres including pop, acoustic, rap/hip-hop, rock/alternative, R&B, dance, novelty, among others.
Aimed at helping aspiring singers maximize their potentials and achieve their dreams, KantaPilipinas will provide chosen contestants with mentors in singing, stage performing, personality development, style and fashion to help package them into the next singing sensations.
