Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2 winner Marcelito Pomoy is living the dream! The Pinoy singer finally met his idol Céline Dion, all thanks to Ellen Degeneres who he impressed with his ability to sing both male and female parts of a song.
Marcelito took to his Facebook page to share a photo with the musical icon who he met backstage after her show at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last Friday. "my favorite singer... my idol... my inspiration... walang kupas... sobrang galing na singer... walang tatalo sa boses..." he wrote alongside the photo.
In another post, Marcelito gave thanks to Ellen for the gift, saying that "just to be near [Céline] is a memory that I will cherish for the rest of my life."
He concluded his post by thanking the Lord for blessing him with such an "amazing talent which led me to meet these famous people I am just wishing to see even from afar." Read his full statement below.
