Re: Philipine Idol – Filipinos singing in public for contest glory? This must be a first.

As God as my witness, if a Filipino can find a microphone, they’ll plug it in & sing. Independence Day Celebrations, birthday parties, funerals and anything in between. It’s an addiction. It’s in the blood. Not to sing in public would be a cultural faux pas.

There is an old saying: Ang lalaking at saka babaing na umdaawit ay kaibigan ko.

If only, it was true in my heart.
