Today, 54 years ago, the would be most celebrated pop singer was born to a simple family in Gary, Indiana. Named Michael Joseph Jackson (simply Michael Jackson or MJ), he would be a music and fashion icon in the years to come. There are a lot of MJ songs that the kids and I like…not just because they’re easy to the ears and to sing but because of the messages they impart.
One of the songs the kids easily remembered is of course, Heal the World, part the lyrics to this song are from the Bible which we read often. It is unfortunate that we never got to attend one of his concerts…we would have loved to see him perform live…
In a surprise move or not, one of my favorite girl group came back to perform Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life as part of the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics. Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, and Melanie Chisholm or who we know as Posh Spice, Baby Spice, Ginger Spice, Sporty Spice and Scary Spice respectively, proved that being good at performing isn’t affected by years of being separated. They could still belt it out and still delight fans, me included.
On July 28, Youtube user youngjay0918, posted a video he recorded of a girl singing her heart out at a mall in Manila. This has got to be a Magic Sing corner where demos are made. 🙂 She was singing “And I Am Telling You,” from the Broadway musical Dreamgirls.) Youngjay0918 titled the video And I Am Telling You (Random Girl)(SM Megamall) – with a note of voting confidence to the singer.
A few days later the video went viral, views going up, getting shared on other social networking sites, Facebook as one.
This is the original video uploaded by youngjay0918. From this video we’ll be convinced that the girl can vie well with singers already known the world over.
A few days later, the random girl’s name was finally made known to those who was awed by her singing prowess, she met with youtube user youngjay0918 some time ago. Zendee Rose Tenerefe…she’s been singing at wedding events and such as she told Willie Revillame in the TV show Will Time Big Time. The humble lass also told Revillame that it was boxing champion Manny Pacquiao who sent her to college, coming from the same city as the boxer.
With this, we think if Magic Sing will not get her as an endorser, a recording contract is not far behind, or perhaps an appearance in an international TV show…such as: Ellen. 🙂 Once again, Ellen’s belief that “some of the best singers are from the Philippines” is proven true.
To hear more from Zendee, visit her youtube channel, she has a lot of song covers from different artists that would amaze you.
Here is her version of Chaka Khan’s Through the Fire. Simply be amazed! 🙂
