  • Rockstar Energy Drink

 

Rockstar Energy Drink and Myke Towers, a globally renowned Puerto Rican rapper and songwriter, announced GiL as the official winner of “Rockstar Energy Presents: Mic Check con Myke Towers,” a national campaign launched in December 2023 to discover the next generation of aspiring Latin urban music stars. The national music contest, which drew nearly a thousand submissions from talented individuals across the United States and Puerto Rico, evaluated contestants on three key criteria: talent, originality, and showmanship. A panel of respected industry experts carefully reviewed each submission, narrowing the pool to the top three finalists for Myke Towers to personally review. From the top three finalists, Towers hand-selected GiL as the next big act in Latin urban music for her vibrant energy and cool sound that blends Trap, R&B, and Urbano genres. GiL, a 25-year-old Puerto Rican artist from Arecibo, discovered her musical talent at age 5 in a musically inclined family, later gaining exposure on reality shows like La Voz Kids and The X Factor before receiving a scholarship from the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation to study music at Berklee College of Music, ultimately feeling destined to submit her original song to the contest upon hearing about it.As the official winner of “Rockstar Energy Presents: Mic Check con Myke Towers,” GiL will receive a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform during one of Myke Towers’ 2024 shows, providing her a stage to showcase her incredible talent. GiL will receive the full Rockstar Energy treatment, which includes rehearsals and an artist development fund to support her journey into the spotlight and help her gain the confidence to shine during her big debut performance, which will be announced later this year.
