Sing Your Way to London….and via Coffee too!

Singing is very much part of the Filipino culture, just look at the number of singing-related and variety shows on TV plus the similarly related dining establishments. In the same way, the habit of having coffee and traveling is very much going into the mainstream Philippine society in the past two decades with the number of coffee shops and low-fare airline tickets.

So when Costa Coffee brought together the concept of coffee, music, and travel, they got a winning formula having launched the “Sing Your Way to London” singing competition!

With so many world-class sights to see including the Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Abbey Road, Notting Hill, and other landmarks, visiting London would definitely be a memory of a lifetime for most.

Costa fans packed the Costa Coffee Robinsons Galleria branch last month as they came out to show their support for the five finalists: Pia Alfonso, Maqui Castelo, lnna Valera, Maki Santos, and Jyl Orila.

The competition was originally inspired from vlogger Vince Vandorpe, after he impressed Costa Coffee barista while singing a British classic at the counter, winning a free cup of coffee in the process. Soon after, Costa Coffee launched a search calling for aspirants to send in a video of them singing a British song.

Filipinos are known world over for their gift in music. And Costa’s London-style is all about celebrating talents and craft. Hence it was a perfect opportunity to do this and we were thrilled with the response!” says Cindy Poh, Costa Coffee Regional Marketing Manager Southeast Asia and New Markets.
