After a year-break, Filipino Idol Singing Competition is back.

Sponsored by Philippine-American Friendship Committee (PAFCOM), and headed by 2013 Overall Chairperson Edwin Solano, this popular, and a crowd-drawer cultural show is the brainchild of Hector Magno, of Magno PI Production.

This year, a new Filipino Idol will be crowned during the Philippine-American Friendship Day on Sunday, June 23 at Lincoln Park in Jersey City following the Parade and Cultural program.

However, contestants cannot perform at the cultural portion of the Festival happening on the same day.

Suggested attire is “dress to impress”.
