“It’s actually exciting to coach and mentor young singers, because they’re all so different. Not just with their cultures and personalities, but even their singing styles, as well."
This is how Morissette Amon described her experience as a judge for the new reality singing-competition Asian Dream. The show is set to premiere this August and is hosted by multi-Grammy winner Michael Bolton.
“I couldn’t be more grateful for the trust Mr. Michael Bolton, Subaru Asia, and AXN Asia have given me to work with them again. Last time for Bolt of Talent, they got me to co-host just the Philippine leg," she said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
She added, "What an honor to be co-hosting and now judging alongside Mr. Bolton in his search for talent here in Asia. I can definitely say we’re more comfortable now than the first time. We’re a lot more loose and open to each other.”
The show was shot in Singapore last year.

A product of a reality singing competition herself, Morissette remarked that she totally understood how the contestants felt throughout the show.
“I think in any competition, whatever position you’re in [judge or contestant], is a big challenge. But this one is particularly special to me. Although I’ve had experienced mentoring and sharing my journey as a contestant before, I am meeting and working with different cultures, too," she stated.
The Pinay singer remarked that she is proud of the work they have done for the show.
“I’m proud to have known each of them, hear their stories and help them with what I could. At the end of the day, it’s about finding the one who shines brighter than the rest. It is my honor to be helping Mr. Bolton out for this competition," she stated.
