Rico Blanco and Kanta Pilipinas Top 12 Finalists (51)

Congratulations Chadleen !!!

Chadleen Lacdo-o is the first grand winner of TV5's Kanta Pilipinas.

Chadleen has proven that she has something unique to offer music-loving Pinoys. With her pretty face and the privilege of being Operation Smile’s international singing ambassador, who would have thought that Chadleen was born with cleft palate? This daddy’s girl had her first operation when she was 20 months old.

Four years later, she became Operation Smile's ambassador, as she identifies closely with the organization's cause. Being the first-ever grand winner of Kanta Pilipinas, Chadleen does not only inspire the whole nation with her golden voice—she also encourages others to not let anything stand in the way of fulfilling their dreams.

She took home the grand prize of PhP 1 Million cash, a recording contract and a management contract under TV5.
