Myke Towers Surprises Winner of Rockstar Energy Drink Performance Contest

Myke Towers made a dream come true by giving the winner of his Rockstar Energy-hosted contest a surprise visit in a recording studio and, let’s just say, she could not believe her eyes. 

During her appearance at Miami-based recording studio House of Hits, Gilmarie “GiL” Villanueva, the winner of “Rockstar Energy Presents: Mic Check con Myke Towers” was excited to sit down for an interview with Billboard, but the budding star was in store for so much more. “[Myke] has inspired me in a big way because I also grew up in the barrio,” she told the cameras, adding, “[He] has a different energy.” Towers, who was on the sidelines of the interview, brought the star to tears when he walked onto the set and surprised her with a visit. 

“I came here to officially congratulate you in person because you’re the winner. Come on and give me a little hug but don’t cry!” he told a teary-eyed GiL. “You’re going to make me cry.” 

“Rockstar Energy Presents: Mic Check con Myke Towers” saw aspiring Latin urban musicians submit an original song for a chance to be the opening act for the star. After sifting through submissions, GiL was handpicked by Towers and will receive the star-studded treatment from Rockstar Energy, with ongoing preparation and an artist development fund to help her journey into the limelight.

During her time with the chart-topper, GiL received advice from Towers about the rookie mistake to avoid in order to shine on the big stage and in her career. “Stay focused and give the people what you know they’re waiting for. You have the responsibility to give the best version of yourself,” he urged.

What GiL wasn’t prepared for, though, was Towers’ invitation to hit the recording booth and flex her skills. With the superstar behind the mixing board, the singer put her talents at the forefront, singing her latest single, “Tu X,” while he encouraged her from the outside and gave notes on the song. To culminate their experience, the two turned to what brought them together in the first place, sharing a toast with the new Rockstar Focus in-hand.
