4th Impact is a Filipino girl group composed of sisters Almira, Irene, Mylene and Celina Cercado. The group competed in the twelfth season of the British singing contest The X Factor, where they finished in fifth place. They are also known for having participated in several Philippine and international talent competitions, including the World Championships of Performing Arts, which they won in 2006 and 2013, and the South Korean talent search Superstar K6 in 2014, where they reached eighth place. The sisters are originally from Santiago City, Isabela, and are now based in Metro Manila, Philippines.
The sisters formed their singing group in 2001 at the suggestion of an aunt. Initially, they named themselves ‘The Cercado Sisters’ after their surname and began performing and competing as a girl group at festivals, events and talent shows. These girls had a huge experience in the sphere of music and passed quite a long path. However, if we talk about the last five years we have to talk about their X Factor live tours, concerts and singles. After their elimination from the X Factor UK, 4th Impact received numerous offers to perform throughout the United Kingdom and in other countries. They appeared in several shows, venues and events in London and nearby cities. In early 2016, the group traveled on their first official tour, The X Factor Live Tour. Polls conducted by the show’s producers prior to the tour showed 4th Impact as the most anticipated act in the tour’s lineup. A poll conducted after the tour named 4th Impact as the best act of the show. After the X Factor Live Tour, 4th Impact continued to perform in the UK and internationally, particularly in Dubai, Dublin, Oslo, and Gibraltar. In April 2016, 4th Impact returned to the Philippines to perform in the 1st Paradise International Music Festival, alongside Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa and other international and Filipino artists. Later that same year, the group announced their homecoming concert to the Philippines entitled Invas10n, which also commemorated their tenth year as group. In December 2016, 4th Impact launched their Invas10n Tour, with their first major concert held in the Philippines. The group, with Star Music Philippines’ backing, released their original debut single entitled “Unleash The Diva” in January 2017. The song peaked at number 3 in iTunes PH and number 1 at Spotify’s Viral 50 PH. In March 2017, 4th Impact traveled to Doha, Qatar to perform in a one-night-only concert. Shortly after, they announced the first international leg of their Invas10n Tour, to be held in New Zealand and Australia in August 2017. In August 2017, 4th Impact officially announced that their first album is in the works and is being recorded under Star Music. In early January 2018, 4th Impact announced that they had recorded the official theme song for the Star Cinema movie ‘Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes’ entitled “It’s Not The Same Anymore”. On March 21, 2018, Tony Valor, a US-based music artist, announced the international release of his single, “D’ Nah Nah”, recorded in collaboration with 4th Impact. On December 1, 2019, 4th Impact performed at the 30th SEA Games VIP Opening Gala Night 2019 at The Tent at Solaire. On December 11, 2019, the group announced that they would perform at the 24th Asian Television Awards to be held for the first time in the Philippines at the Newport Performing Arts Theater at Resorts World Manila. This was telecast live across Asia on January 10, 11 and 12, 2020. On March 23, 2021 the group released their first cover with a clip in their own studio.
