Star Magic shines on!
Today, December 4, eight Kapamilya stars and two new artist groups have signed contracts with ABS-CBN's talent management arm Star Magic!
Led by ABS-CBN Chairman Mark Lopez, ABS-CBN CEO and President Carlo Katigbak, ABS-CBN Chief Operating Officer of Broadcast Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN Head of Finance Rick Tan, and ABS-CBN Head of TV Production and Star Magic Lauren Dyogi, they welcomed the best and the brightest Filipino talents to the family.
Before the ceremony began, Direk Lauren shared, “Star Magic is known to produce, to hone, and to manage the brightest and the most talented stars in Philippine show business, and today, we continue this legacy and tradition.”
"As we welcome new artists to the Star Magic family, we also want to express our deepest gratitude to the Star Magic artists who chose to stay with us as we continue to rebuild and explore new opportunities."
Eight-member P-Pop girl group BINI, who recently released their pre-debut single "Da Coconut Nut", was the first new artist group to ink their contracts. Following them is P-Pop boy group SHA Boys (Star Hunt Academy Boys). SHA Boys are regularly seen on ABS-CBN musical-variety show "ASAP", and they are currently preparing for their official debut in January 2021.
Celebrities who renewed their contracts were Kim Chiu, Enchong Dee, JM de Guzman, Andrea Brillantes, Jane de Leon, Joseph Marco, Kira Balinger, and Robi Domingo.
Kim, who is one of the biggest stars of this generation, exclaimed, “I AM SO HAPPY! I AM SO VERY HAPPY! Through ups and downs, I am a proud Kapamilya, [and] will always be a Kapamilya.”
