WCOPA 2010 top winners are Filipinos: Marielle Corpuz and Lianah Sta. Ana

The 14th World Championships Of the Performing Arts (WCOPA 2010) has
concluded Friday night with 2 Filipina singers emerging as champions.

The finale was held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in L.A. and was shown via online streaming at the WCOPA site 7 PM Friday in LA, but around 10 AM Saturday here.

24-year-old Rose Marielle Mamaclay aka Marielle Corpuz from the Team Philippines won the Senior Vocal event, then later announced as the
Over-All Senior Grand Champion Performer of the World for 2010.

It's the same title won by Jed Madela back in 2005.

Marielle already competed in WCOPA 2008 but she failed to win the Senior Vocal Championship.

She is a graduate of BS Hotel, Restaurant & Institution Management from Wesleyan University-Philippines in Nueva Ecija.

The Junior Division of WCOPA 2010 also had a Pinay champion, but a Fil-Am singer from the Team USA.

She is 11-year-old Lianah Sta. Ana and she won as Junior Vocal Champion and Over-All Junior Grand Champion Performer of the World, a title also won by Aria Clemente in 2007, Catherine Loria in 2008 and Rhap Salazar in 2009.

Lianah already won a number of singing competitions in the US such as New York Knicks' Kidz Bop Sports Jamz Talent Search and the Apollo
Amateur Night Competition, both happened this year.

She was also a guest performer at the Heartthrobs and Friends Live in the US concert headlined by Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby last April.

Also a Youtube sensation, Lianah is described as the next Charice Pempengco.

She idolizes Charice and loves to sing Charice's hits "Note to
God" and "Pyramid".

Congrats Team Philippines, Team USA and to the Filipinos!
