Filipinos are used to hearing Marcelito Pomoy sing with both his male and female (falsetto) voices, but the singer has wowed the world with his emotional rendition of “The Prayer” on a grander stage, “America’s Got Talent: The Champions”!
It’s the second season of The Champions, as special edition of “America’s Got Talent” that features winning acts from across America and the world. It is already week 2 of the reality TV singing contest and everyone cheered after hearing that Marcelito comes from the Philippines.
Accompanied by his wife, Marcelito admits he’s a bit nervous about performing in this bigger stage but he’s also keen on winning the competition. In his introduction, he shared that he once lived in the streets and lost his family for many years. It was through Pilipinas Got Talent that he was able to reunite with his family in 2011. They were present on the day he won the contest, watching in the audience as he won the finals.
Everyone was excited to see what he would do on America’s Got Talent: The Champions. He did not tell them what he was about to do, but when he started singing, he truly impressed the judges!
Marcelito began with the female voice on “The Prayer”, leading Howie to ask, “That’s his voice?” But the audience went wild when he started on the male voice. And everyone was quite impressed when he did the alternate voices.
Midway in his performance, the three judges gave him a standing ovation. But Simon Cowell was still impressed even if he didn’t give Marcelito a standing ovation; because he would later say that the performance was a “10”.
Though he did not get the golden buzzer because Howie did not press the button as he wanted to wait for the other performances, Marcelito still moved on to the next round with the help of AGT superfans.
