ONCE again, judges of X-Factor UK were impressed to the talents of our Filipino singers.
17-year old Maria Laroco joined X-Factor UK on September 8, Saturday. Before she sings the song Purple Rain by Prince, she admitted to the judges (Simon Cowell, Robbie Williams, Ayda Field, at Louis Tomlinson) on why she joined in a said competition, “Since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to be an international superstar. I want to be big that’s why I’m doing this because I love to do it and this is my dream,” Maria said.
From the start of the song, the audience cheered when they heard Maria sang her own rendition of Purple Rain. At the last part of the song, the judges gave Maria a standing ovation.
Simon Cowell asked Maria if she ever doubted to be part of this big competition, “No. I never give up to my dreams A lot of times people told me that I can’t do it. I’m not good enough.” Maria cried.
No doubt that the audience loved her performance based on the their applause and cheers. Even the judges were impressed by her singing prowess. We hope Maria Laroco will climb up to the top an be the next X-Factor winner.
