The weekly roundup – Filipino talent

You got to admire Filipino talent. Last night’s conclusion the second season of Pilipinas Got Talent recognized another legend in the making by the name of Marcelito Pomoy. This “male diva” wowed the judges and viewers with his unique voice, it’s better just to watch the video to see what we mean.

Marcelito and the other 13 finalists showed everyone that Filipinos are world class performers. And let’s not forget last year’s season, which was spectacular in its own rights. Truly, Filipinos are talented people. Now let’s head to more news:
