Filipino Ryan Richard Tamondong won the grand prix at the Europop singing tilt held in Berlin, Germany on Sunday.

Tamondong bested contestants from 17 European countries.


Another Filipino contestant, Gyver Jude Concon, placed fourth in the 18-to-24 age category. Other Filipino contestants, Princess Faith Priel and Mikee Micosa, received a diploma and a medal.


The Philippines is the only Asian country invited to join Europop. This is the second year for the Philippines to join Europop.

Last year, Ana Katrina Ramsey won first place in the 18-to-24 age category, while Gian Marla Gloria placed 4th place and Glee Nette Gaddi third in the 14-to-17 age group.

Also last year, “Goin’ Bulilit” mainstay Cha Cha Cañete placed second in the 10-to-13 age category, while Natalie Erin Martinez received a diploma and a medal.

“There is no doubt that the Philippines is blessed with so much talent. Filipino talent is truly world-class.” Viktor Leis, managing director of Leider Leis Musik Production (Europop organizer), said that the Filipinos have set the standard for other countries in future competitions.
