WINNIPEG – Thirteen- year-old singer Mimoza Duot of Winnipeg is taking on YTV’s The Next Star.

After a cross-Canada search where over 4000 talented Canadian kids showed up to audition, Corus Entertainment’s YTV launched the third season of its popular talent series The Next Star on July 19th in which the top 16 contestants from St. John’s and Montreal were chosen. The first three episodes take place during the nationwide audition period and feature hopefuls aged 15 and under as they try to make it to the next round.

The second episode was held in Saskatoon where Mimoza was among the top 16 announced, together leaders from Saskatoon, Toronto and part one of Edmonton.

“She begged us to drive her all the way to Saskatoon for this audition and, thank God, it’s worth it!” exclaimed Mimoza’s happy mom, Mimi Duot, who spoke to Pilipino Express from Toronto.
