As an avid watcher of the Got Talent franchises, I’ve seen a lot of unexpected acts on the stage but few were as interesting or as moving as this one. Marcelito Pomoy grew up in poverty in the Philippines and began singing in competitions at a young age to help support his family. Despite facing many hardships, he continued to pursue his passion for music and eventually rose to international fame.
Marcelito rose to fame after winning the talent competition Pilipinas Got Talent in 2011. But unless you’ve seen him before, you may not know that his “claim to fame” is his unique talent of singing in both male and female voices for famous duets.
In this brilliant audition, Marcelito takes on one of the most recognizable and iconic duets of recent decades: Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli’s “The Prayer.” Rather than give you an explanation, I’ll just say you have to watch the video below to see how it all unfolds. I don’t want to spoil it!
Marcelito’s life story is equally as impressive as his talent. He grew up in poverty in the Philippines and began singing in competitions at a young age to help support his family. His journey is an inspiration to aspiring musicians around the world and has touched the hearts of millions.
