The search for Asia’s next music sensation and Subaru’s brand ambassador is on.

Subaru Asia and Michael Bolton are launching the first season of the Asian Dream, a reality singing competition that spotlights six talented musicians from across Asia, next month. Six aspiring talented musicians will be competing against each other to earn a spot on Michael’s Asian Dream tour and to become a Subaru Ambassador.

Over the course of seven episodes in the season, the contestants from Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam are mentored, coached, and pushed to the limits by Michael Bolton, and his co-host, singing sensation Morrisette Amon, along with celebrity guest experts. Yes, we have a local talent joining the competition – Karl Zarate. Zarate will be going up against other challengers Becky Yeung (Hong Kong), Linh Tran (Vietnam), Sasha Ka (Thailand), Poova Sri Rama (Malaysia), and Tyen Rasif (Singapore).

Throughout the show which features a progressive elimination format, the singers face a wide range of physical and mental challenges that will make or break them, until the final showdown.  These give the contestants an opportunity to understand what is needed on the journey to becoming a professional singer. The winner will then perform in the Asian Dream concert tour with Michael Bolton next year.

“We are proud to provide a unique platform and opportunity for aspiring singers to pursue their dreams. They are mentored individually by industry veterans, hone their skills through a series of challenges, and improve their performance. Through this experience, as they grow as performers, I hope Asian Dream will serve as a launchpad for their future success,” said Mr. Glenn Tan, Deputy Chairman and Managing Director, Tan Chong International Limited.

Bolton will be joined by Filipina singer and actress Morissette Amon. The two comprise the resident judges of the show and will be joined by other special guest judges. One of those guest judges is none other than Mr. Glenn Tan himself.

Season 1 of the Asian Dream will premiere on Axn on August 6, 2020. AXN is available in the Philippines on Cignal Channel 121, GSat Channel 21, and SKY cable Channel 49.
