The grand finals of the the Holiday Hymns, the Araneta Center's Choral Competition was held December 23, 2012.  A big crowd watched the event as 11 finalist battle for the grand prize of Php 150,000 pesos.  The crowd was entertained and amazed with the angelic voices of the choirs that participated.

I was hired to be the official photographer of the event. I was excited as well because I love choir competitions especially it's about Holiday Hymns.

Here are the photos and videos of the event:

I had a good time listening to the Christmas songs. It really gave the crowd (me included) the holiday spirit. Kudos to Araneta Center for bringing this type of entertainment to the crowd while showcasing the talents of the different choirs.  I look forward to next year's competition!
