“Battle of the Barrios” student talent showdown highlights issues important to Filipino Americans

NEW JERSEY — Every year, hundreds of young Fil-Ams gather to showcase their talent in singing, dancing and acting in one of the most awaited talent showdown in the East Coast: the “Battle of the Barrios.”

This year, the stories these young minds created surround really important issues that really matter to them.

Fil-Am college students from New York and New Jersey sing, dance and act in a ten-minute skit to tell stories that matter most to them —  from same-sex marriage to extrajudicial killings and human rights abuses such as the slaying of journalists.
