Are you the next greatest singer from Asia? Motor Image Subaru, along with multi-awarded singer Michael Bolton, recently announced a new partnership for the first season of Asian Dream. It's an all-new reality talent search where Subaru and Michael Bolton join hands to shine a light on promising singers across the region.
The seven-episode series aims to foster emerging musical talent from six aspiring singers from Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Each week, contestants will be given a specific set of tasks that will sharpen their skills in order to save their place in the competition.
They will be coached, mentored, and judged by Michael Bolton as well as by other special guests. Each week, one aspiring contestant will be eliminated until one winner is crowned as the winner of Asian Dream. Apart from winning the competition, the winning contestant will also be named as a Subaru ambassador and will be joining Michael Bolton on the Asian Dream Tour.

The show will be an excellent showcase for these aspiring talents who display grit, perseverance and commitment - traits that resonate with the Subaru brand.
