She is very confident with her singing ability and knows that she will represent the Philippines with her talent.

“I believe my talent is world class and I’m here to represent all the Filipino community here in the UK.”

Fellow Filipino, Nicole Scherzinger’s found her tiny. Simon Cowell also asked her what the X Factor means to her.

To Represent the Philippines

 “This X Factor journey is very memorable for me because I dedicate this fight for my family way back in the Philippines. I’m only here because of my mother’s friend, who contributed enough money for a plane ticket, just to audition here.”

Emotional Performance

The Filipino singer got four yeses from the judges who were very happy and contented with her audition.

She left Scherzinger crying and Obsbourne teary-eyed after singing and Cowell and Walsh also said there is something within her that they really, really like.
