During his birthday concert this past Sunday
at the Il Teatro del Silenzio in Tuscany,
Andrea Bocelli sang his biggest hit,
"The Prayer", with a young Filipina.

And despite the gas crisis,
shipping tragedies in our seas, &
a lying president's forthcoming SONA,

after watching the video below,
I couldn't help but proudly shout

"In realtà il mondo è pieno di grandi voci
e ho avuto la fortuna di cantare con tanti artisti,
da Christina Aguilera a Bono.

Ma, se proprio dovessi trovare una nuova interprete,
punterei su Charice, una ragazza delle Filippine
che a soli 15 anni è una versa forza della natura.
Ne sentiremo parlare."

"In reality, the world is full of great voices
and I had the opportunity to sing with so many artists,
from Christina Aguilera to Bono.

But, if I would like to look for a new voice,
I would push for Charice, a girl from the Philippines
who at only 15 years old is a flush force of nature.
That we shall be hearing."

nakakaiyak, di ba?

A beautiful voice indeed, smooth as velvet - a wonderful partnering with Maestro Bocelli.

This girl is AMAZING. Maraming salamat kay Ellen for discovering her. hehe :) Pero seriously.. She's destined for even greater things, I think. 15 years old. PINOY. San ka pa? :D

What a fabulous opportunity to sing with Bocelli. Wow wow wow.

I love this song because it's my wedding song. Walked down the aisle to this. :)

Double senti mode for me. :D
