Gerphil Flores, operatic singer from the Philippines, finished third on pan-regional talent search “Asia’s Got Talent.” El Gamma Penumbra took home the grand prize while Khusugtun from Mongolia in second place.
The result was announced during the grand finals night of the competition on Thursday, May 14 at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
Before Flores captured the heart of Grammy-award winning composer David Foster, the talented Pinay singer first wowed our kababayans when she joined Pilipinas Got Talent in 2010.
She made it until the semis of the competition where she was eliminated and was given the advise by the judges to sing known songs. It was a very emotional night for Gerphil as she bid goodbye to the competition but not to her dreams of becoming a singer.
Last week, her rendition of ‘Impossible Dream’ gave her a standing ovation from the judges and audience of the competition. Her amazing version prompted Grammy-winning composer David Foster to announce: “I promise you, the world is going to know about you.”
