Ultimate celebrity shout-outs

Pepper Teehankee (The Philippine Star) – July 16, 2020 – 12:00am

Just a couple of weeks ago, stars in the pageant scene, entertainment, society and sports all aligned as they did a virtual launch for Ace, the first and only celebrity shout-out digital platform in Southeast Asia. Certain Hollywood celebrities have been doing shout-outs as well. Fans request shout-outs for a simple hello, birthday greetings or tips from their favorite stars.  They can request for the parameters of the message for either themselves or as a gift to a friend. The recipient receives the shout-out on video in their email within five days. These shout-out videos are getting very popular in social media.

Philippine lead for Ace Frank Briones said, “Launching a business during the time of pandemic is risky… but with faith and hard work, anything is possible.”  CEO of Singapore-based Ace Entertainment Holdings Dene Schonknecht said, “Now that most of us are still on lockdown, and most pageants, local movies, TV series, sporting events are temporarily put on hold, this is one way for fans to still engage with their idols.”

Ace Video is currently present in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines. Some of the regional stars in its roster include Allan Wu from Singapore (Amazing Race Asia), Max Loong from Malaysia (The Voice Switzerland) and Cindy Bishop from Thailand (Asia’s Next Top Model). Locally, they have the likes of beauty queens Pia Wurtzbach and Shamcey Supsup, actors KC Concepcion, Marco Gumabao, Ruffa Gutierrez, Daniel Matsunaga, influencer Divine Lee, sportsmen Neil Etheridge, Phil Younghusband, Thirdy Ravena, Marck Espejo and many more.
