Filipinos are known for singing magnificently even though their voices crack or not. They are open to showcase their ability to sing regardless of how good or how bad they are going to sound.
There are famous Filipino singers who are known worldwide such as; Charice Pempengco, Regine Velasquez, Lea Salonga, KZ Tandingan and many more.
And just recently, another Filipino singer stands out abroad.
Marcelito Pomoy received a standing ovation from the judges on America’s Got Talent: The Champions.
In an episode aired Jan. 13, the 35-year-old native of Surigao del Sur impressed with his rendition of “The Prayer.” He blew the audience and judges away with his ability to duet with himself.
After his powerful performance, judge Simon Cowell gave Pomoy a perfect score of 10.
“That was what I call a 10, a simple as that. I have a feeling that the super fans will put you through to the next round,” Cowell said.
“That was so unique, you are a beautiful, wonderful singer with a young woman trap inside of you,” added Howie Mandel.
Alesha Dixon lauded the performance because of its uniqueness. “I want to see something different, something unique and Marcelito you just gave it to us. It is absolutely brilliant.”
Heidi Klum, for her part, said: “Honestly, this is one of the craziest things I ever heard in my entire life. Your voice, your range, and your sound is just so out of this world.”
What’s truly a feat for Marcelito was when Simon Cowell smiled ear to ear as he convinced fellow judge Howie to press the golden buzzer.
Prior to his performance, Marcelito went up on stage with wife Joan Paraiso, who turned emotional talking about her husband’s hard life.
