The day was filled with joy, excitement, and heart-warming stories because after a month of training and surviving from 36 assignments, the most awaited day of the aspiring voice artists of Batch 8 finally came true.

Hosted once again by the ever-energetic Mr. Richard Abalos (The Rich Voice), co-hosted by CVAP Head Secretariat and the new CVAP Director Mr. Jeff Perey, and a batch 8 member, Christa Moiselle Sajor (XstaVoice), the participants joined the meeting with delight.

Showcased in the celebration is the presentation of the group dubbing prepared by each (I3) group. We’re also not to miss the inspiring messages from the notable individuals in the CVAP family. CVAP Secretariat Member, Mr. Freddie H. Tayoan, gave an inclusive remark that "we are all the voices from the wilderness before we met CVAP." The Batch Head of Batch I, Mr. Rene Toralba, imparts that "the learning doesn't stop, CVAP is just the first step in honing the path" (towards voice artistry). The Program Director, Ms. Nikie Esmero (Voicing Queen) declared her three wishes for the graduates, to have Freedom, Empowerment, and Vision for what they have become and will become. Mr. Pocholo "The VoiceMaster Gonzales," reminds once again the VoiceMates that "we have an unlimited opportunity while we are still alive," and what we do about those opportunities is up to us. CVA Mr. Bryan Dave Perez (Vibrant Voice) shared the perks of being a CVA and the love shared within the CVAP family. CVA Ms. Lyn Gonzales imposed that rejection in auditions is a battle all voice artists face: only those who are brave enough will stay.

Ms. Kathleen Kaye Sone (Voice over Flowers) also had a friendly talk with the VoiceMates and shared some of her tips as a voice artist. One of which is to save voiceovers recording for self-monitoring in the future.

Selected Batch 8 members were given the spotlight to speak and share their voices. They were the ones who have already shined even before graduation, such as Sashi Ruu a.k.a Shiruu, Monique Angelica, Jayjay  Delos Santos , and Coach Andres Diesta Bulay IV, the Batch Head, and Jane M. Lumasag. Shiru has already produced a Voice of the Youth 202I Theme song together with the VoiceMaster. Monique is now the face of the Voice of the News Network. Jay is now recognized as a man with 36 Voices. Andres is now a host who will work with the VoiceMaster. Jane, despite her disability, has been an inspiration that our only limit is ourselves. 

Every VoiceMates has worthy stories to tell, but during the InVOICEtiture, JayJay was the one who touched the heart of all the participants. He even made many, if not all, shed tears because of his life's story. (Curious? Follow them on social media to know their stories.)

These 78 VoiceMates have already come a long way, but their journey as Voice Artists just began.

 CVAP Batch 8 is now ready to gear victory in the Voice Artistry. They now rise to prove that someone out there needs to hear their voice. No one will stop, because just like the VoiceMaster said, “If we stop, everything will stop.”
