I am Rae Margarette Gocoyo, 24, from Dasmarinas, Cavite. I have been performing in a band since 2008 but I have been singing basically my whole life. I was an official band vocalist, where I am more known as Maggie Rae, of the university band called Lasallian Pop Band which belongs in the Performing Arts Group under the Cultural Arts Office of my university. I graduated from De La Salle University - Dasmarinas with a Bachelor's Degree of Communication Major in Public Relations wherein I was a scholar from freshmen until I graduated because of being in the band. At present I still do gigs and I sing at events because I can't really let go of my passion.
It is a great honor to be able to be chosen, out of the thousands who auditioned, to represent the country in an international competition like this one. For years, the Philippines has been a threat to other countries by bringing home top awards including the biggest one which is the Grand Champion Performer of the World, this year, I dare and try to compete for the title and make my family, friends, organization, workplace,Alma Mater and especially my countrymen from all over the world proud.
The World Championships of Performing Arts is an annual event for the past 20 years and is the ONLY TALENT OLYMPICS in the world. it is consisted of 7 Categories namely: Vocals, Vocals with Accompaniment, Acting, Modelling, Dance, Instrumentals and Variety Arts. Group and Solo categories are included in each age bracket. Team Philippines is made up of more than 90 delegates each personally chosen by the national team all over the Philippines. I will be competing in the SOLO VOCALS CATEGORY, 18-24 age bracket in 5 out of 14 styles. (Broadway, Country&Western, Contemporary, Gospel,Latin,Open, Opera, Original Works, Pop, R&B/Soul/Jazz, Rap, Rock, Variety and World).
In order for me to be able to do this, I would be needing financial assistance to cover my expenses such as the contest registration, which the team already paid in half, airfare, hotel accommodations, visa application, food, transportation costumes, musical arrangement, voice coaches and everything else needed to equip me in this competition.
The accumulated amount that I will get from here will really be a big help in making this dream to make you all proud come true. if however I exceed from the amount I need, I would be very much privileged to pass it to other WCOPA delegates who would be in short of sponsors.

Details on how to reach me are posted below. I give you my thanks in advance and rest assured that all your help won't be put to waste. Thank You and God Bless You!
NOTE: To become an OFFICIAL DELEGATE, the requirements mentioned above are the ones needed to get a US visa, like the clearances (NBI, Police, Barangay), medical tests and the FEES.
Thank you very much!
