Their latest victory was at the 64th International Habaneras and Polyphony Competition in Torrevieja, Spain last month, according to Manila Bulletin
They won two first prizes at the event under the Habanera category (Primer Premio Ricardo Lafuente), with a prize of 12,000 euros ($13,885) and a trophy. The group also won the Polyphony category (Primer Premio Juan Aparicio) with 10,000 euros ($11,571) and a trophy.
The group took home the grand prize at Sing! Berlin International Choir Competition at the Friedrich Handel Gymnasium in Berlin, Germany from July 4-8. They were also the category winner of the Sacred Music and Mixed Choirs competition.
Besides “Moana,” UP Singing Ambassadors also covered the ever-so-famous “Let It Go” from the movie “Frozen.”
They’ve sung “Circle of Life” from the classic “Lion King,” complete with animals and sounds of nature.
The group has also done a rendition of Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up.”
