RisingStars holds first year anniversary with grand eyeball party



Why limit ones’ self to see each other online when you can break the virtual walls and come together in a grand EB party, such as what RisingStars Philippines did for their online members.

Held at the 121 Bar and Grill at the Allegro Center in Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati City Nov. 28, 2012, RisingStars – the only free online karaoke service in the Philippines –hosted their 1st year anniversary grand eyeball party with their active online members and celebrated with them the growth and success of their website.

Hosted by one of RisingStars own users, Kristy “Muzyk” Francisco, the party, which started at around 7 p.m. until past 11 p.m., had everyone enjoy a night of good food, good times and a rockeoke with a live band, which turned into a fun showdown among fellow RS users and staff.

The event was generously sponsored by Nescafe’s Ready-To-Drink In Can, who gave away an endless flow of product samples that added the caffeine rush to the party.
Organized by Megamobile Inc., the event was meant as a thanksgiving occasion for the dynamic Risingstars Community.

Manny Fernando, President/CEO of Megamobile Inc. paid tribute to the community members.
“When we dreamt of offering Risingstars in the Philippines, we had a different expectation. Our initial vision was to create an avenue for Filipinos to combine our passion for singing and love for social networking through the convenience of the digital space.”

“We didn’t know that our portal would mean more to the community beyond recording and sharing their songs. It made us realize that it’s about building friendships through the common love of singing.”

Rising Stars started in October 2011. In one year, the community grew to 41,904 activated users with over27,463 recorded songs uploaded.

Video presentations prepared by RisingStars’ Community Manager Mahal Amanda Adams illustrated the history, achievements, and selected talented users’ performances of the karaoke platform followed by the evening’s highlight presented by RisingStars Asia PTE. Ltd. founder, Mr. Andrew Gonczi, who flew all the way from Bangkok to join the event.
27,463 songs uploaded.

“In our first year of operations here in the Philippines, we learned so much about the community and we are constantly evolving. We are just starting”, Mr. Gonzci added.

As a promise to the community members ofRisingstars, a preview of the new the website’s design interface and upcoming features were also unveiled that night.

The new site boasts of exciting features such as private karaoke rooms, which are expected to go live by the start of 2013.

Other features include a cleaner look, more song challenges and a more dynamic integration with other social network sites such as Facebook, Twitter and others. More fun events and online competitions will continue to be offered to the growing online community.
