Marty Online   happy

Across the country and among the Belizean Diaspora abroad, thousands were glued to their television sets for the grand finale of KTV Latino Season Two—the most popular local entertainment on Tuesday nights. The packed show opened with a presentation from the sensational Ismael Chacon, the first KTV Latino champ and the audience was held captive throughout the evening by the performances of this season’s four finalists and the judges as well as favorites from season one. Then came the announcement, the man of the hour was overjoyed and confident. News Five’s Andrea Polanco was the Bliss on closing night.

Andrea Polanco, Reporting

Minutes after he was named the 2011 KTV Latino Champion, an ecstatic Daniel Aguirre, told us that while the journey was hard, he knew he would’ve walked away with the title:

Daniel Aguirre: KTV Lationo Champion-2011

“It feels good, it would feel the same in second or third , coming in the competition was hard but I worked hard for this so I think I deserve.”

Andrea Polanco

“Did you expect this win?

Daniel Aguirre

Yes I did, I felt I was a champion from the start because the people of Belize have always been behind me.”

As overjoyed as Aguirre, for the other three finalists the emotions were high and mixed before the announcements were made:

Sarita Obando

Sarita Obando, 2nd Place

“Before performing I really was feeling nervous, but now it stop.”

Javier Castillo: 3rd place

“Well I am feeling very happy, very contented, I want to thank everyone for their support and I’m happy I made it to the end.

Carolina Bonilla: 4th Place

“The best feeling I express right now is joy, I am happy to be once more on stage, and I just want to give my public all the love.”

And that love and support helped them, because the finalists said that the road to KTV Latino finals was rough but a rewarding experience:

Sarita Obando

“Well it has been fun, stress, and also frustration because finding the song and also really to be out there and finding the people to give you their support or ask them for their support as being money. Asking them to vote for you and also to sponsors .”

Javier Castillo

Javier Castillo

“Well for me it was a pretty nice experience, hard, every step that I took was a challenge for me but I thank the public that I made it so far.”

Carolina Bonilla

“Every week was a challenge. Week in, week out the nerves, the joy, the breakdowns, the sadness, it’s a rollercoaster of emotions.”

And as the emotions culminated last night, it was one of joy as the finalists are already embarking on new projects, an opportunity provided by KTV Latino:

Sarita Obando

“Javier has asked me to do an album with him so that‘s much of something that is coming.”

Carolina Bonilla

Carolina Bonilla

“Well definitely I do… as a matter of fact I have been getting orders already people have been calling me to go sing at different places.

Javier Castillo

“My plans are to continue in music, as a matter of fact, I am writing my own songs, just today finished writing a Bachata and I hope that everybody likes it.”

While their plans are to continue with music, the finalists said they have grown and learned valuable lessons during their journey:

Carolina Bonilla

“Well I learned that you should never give up. I learned that you just get up and come stronger every time.”

Sarita Obando

“Facing the crowd, that’s something that I really broke from me because first I couldn’t stand on a stage.”

Javier Castillo

“Well I learnt a lot of things, I lost the nervousness because at first it was hard but after a while I let go of the nerves.”

And letting go of some of those obstacles, KTV Latino Champion, Daniel, said he beat out the odds and it has definitely paid off:

Daniel Aguirre

“I have overcome a lot in the competition since it started. At first I used to feel like I was in one corner but now people are recognizing me. Starting from the 6th of May I will be across the country from Orange Walk, to San Ignacio to Belmopan, around the country performing. Tomorrow we’re going to be in Belmopan we’re going to be celebrating, we’ll have a parade through the main streets of Belmopan and uh we’re going to make this big tomorrow.”

Andrea Polanco

“So tomorrow that mean you wont be driving your taxi as regular, it’s going to be big celebration?”

Daniel Aguirre

“Tomorrow there aren’t going to be any taxis tomorrow in Belmopan, all cab drivers gonna be behind us in a big parade. That’s a guarantee.”

Andrea Polanco

What will you do with the ten thousand dollars?

Daniel Aguirre

Well first I will build my house and with the rest of the money I will buy a karaoke machine and continue to sing for the rest of my life, because I love singing.

Season two ended with a bang, but can it get any bigger? You bet! Last night our new champion put out a challenge to last year’s winner, Ismael Chacon:

Daniel Aguirre

“Well 2010 is gone, this is 2011. And of course, I feel like I am the better of the two of the two of us and to know that we’re both from Belmopan I feel like I have something over him that he doesn’t have. Right now as we’re speaking, I challenge him this number one prize again, knowing that he had number one before, to see who is the winner of this ten grand and I can bet him whatever he wants.”

Reporting for News Five, Andrea Polanco.

Well, we don’t know what the response will be from Chacon, but we’ll surely find out the answer to the challenge.
