Wow. Or perhaps it’s no surprise. Filipinos seem born to sing, and nowhere was it more evident than in the finale of Israel’s X-Factor singing competition.
47-year-old care home worker, Rose Fastane, won the finale of the inaugural 1st season of X-Factor Israel. Her winning song: “My Way” by Frank Sinatra. Watch Rose Fastane sing “My Way” here:
But always along for the ride on beautiful voices is the typical humility of Filipinos.
The Filipina, whose powerful voice impressed many Israelis, may have won X-Factor Israel but she is not sure if she would give up her job as a caregiver.
