Meet Janine Berdin

Ever since she was a child, Tawag ng Tanghalan contender Janine Berdin already knew that show business is the path she really wanted to take. Her ticket to the industry was joining the Star Circle Quest: Search for the Next Kiddie Superstars 4 where she finished as the 4th semi-finalist.

She once again tried her luck by joining The Voice Kids Philippines and Tawag ng Tanghalan Season 1 but failed. Instead of getting disheartened, these failures fueled Janine to keep on going and attempting until she succeeds.
