MARIANE OSABEL is hailed at the grand champion of “The Clash Season 4 2021” after proving her incredible vocal prowess and rising above the intense battles with her equally talented rivals. 

The Final Clash was held last December 19 and the Ultimate Siren of Iligan Mariane Osabel emerged triumphant.  

"The feeling is still so surreal,” she says. “I’ve never been this proud of myself. Totoo ba 'to? I’m loving this new chapter of my life. Thank you, Panginoon! Thank you for listening. Thank you for all those experiences in the past. Thank you for giving me this wonderful talent. Thank you for anointing me." 

The youngest of five kids, Mariane is turning 24 on January 28. Her childhood was spent in Saudi Arabia where her parents were working then. 

“Bale doon po ako nagtapos ng grade school. Then umuwi kami sa Iligan City where I finished high school. In college, I took up environmental technology at the Mindanao State University. My winning is a real blessing kasi I have an older brother who needs kidney transplant and this will be a big help for our family.” 

She admits having joined other singing contests before.

“Marami na akong nasalihang contests at hindi ako nanalo. Ganun talaga, dapat huwag ka panghihinaan ng loob at malakas ang fighting spirit mo. Try ka lang nang try hanggang makamit mo ang iyong tagumpay.’’ 

Her winning song during The Final Clash was Harish Joya's "Bakit Mahal Pa Rin Kita," besting the Kulot Crooner of Pampanga Vilmark Viray who performed Christian Paul Rosa's "Umuwi Ka Na" - both original compositions are from The Clash songwriting challenge.

The Clash Panel – composed of Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha, Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista, and Comedy Concert Queen AiAi delas Alas – were all in awe of Mariane's performances throughout the entire competition.

As Grand Champion, Mariane will receive prizes worth over P4 million, which includes P1 million in cash, a house and lot, and an exclusive management contract with GMA-7.

The Clash is hosted by Clash Masters, Total Heartthrob Rayver Cruz and Asia’s Pop Diva Julie Anne San Jose; together with Journey Hosts Rita Daniela and Ken Chan. Stay updated about your favorite Kapuso shows and artists by logging on to GMANetwork.com
