Star Magical Prom: Spotlight On The Debutantes (Part 1)

In this exclusive, Star Magic's debutantes—clad in glam-rock ensembles—talk about turning 18 and the women they look up to, as we cap off Women's Month

Star Magic, ABS-CBN’s premiere talent management arm, is staging its first ever “Star Magical Prom” this March 30. A “night of love, friendship, and magic,” the event will gather their young stars and up-and-coming artists, among them some debutantes who just turned 18 and are about to turn 18.

As Star Magic starts a new tradition and welcomes into their family a new roster of stars, everyone is invited to watch the red carpet happenings live on Star Magic’s official YouTube channel.

Celebrating the Star Magical Prom along with these young ladies are the likes of Donny Pangilinan, Belle Mariano, Francine Diaz, Seth Fedelin, Andrea Brillantes, Jayda Avanzado, and Aljon Mendoza. P-pop groups BINI and BGYO and global boy band HORI7ON will also grace the magical night. 

“For more than 30 years, Star Magic has been a place where talents have been nurtured, lives have been changed, and stars shone brighter,” Star Magic helm Lauren Dyogi said in a statement. 

Viewers are also in for a treat as Star Magic, which marked its 30th anniversary last year, will showcase a Sweet 16 and debutante ensemble, and crown the occasion’s Prom King and Queen.

Following the “Star Magical Christmas Party,” which was held in December 2022, the “Star Magical Prom” will serve as an avenue for fresh talents to experience a momentous “debut,” magical birthday celebration, and for some, their first ever prom experience. 

In this exclusive, we asked these Star Magic debutantes how they feel about turning 18. And in line with the celebration of Women's Month this March, they also talked about the women they look up to.
