After finishing her contract with BPCI as the 2nd Runner-Up in Bb. Pilipinas 2012, Analie ‘Ali’ Forbes has resumed her love for singing. After all, this was her main bread-and-butter back in the day. Bars, lounges, 5-star hotels – she has done the rounds.
So when this Team JDV ward was called upon by her mentor (John dela Vega) to attend a casting call for the Philippine entry to the 1st edition of Miss Grand International, little did she know that what never happened in Bb. Pilipinas will come true with the Bangkok-based beauty competition – to wear the country’s sash abroad. She is now Miss Grand Philippines 2013.
The competition won’t be until past mid-November, but Ali is getting her wardrobe ready. With the help of her beauty camp and designer Poi Subijano, she will be dressed in sexy but elegant evening gowns and cocktail dresses from the pre-pageant activities all the way to the finals.
And she is also practicing her sensual singing voice for the talent competition. I bet she will render one of her more lively jazz standards, if not a really danceable pop tune.
Good luck, Ali! 🙂
