Blind Pinay Singer Amazes Netizens with Another Awesome Song Cover

Remember Elsie Atig Balawing, the blind Filipina singer who went viral for singing an awesome rendition of a Whitney Houston song?

Well, she is back with a new cover that has once again amazed netizens. This time, Elsie sang a powerful rendition of ”Listen” by Beyonce.

Even with her first viral cover, Elsie truly amazed people because she can enunciate the English lyrics well despite the fact that she actually has no idea what she is singing about because she does not know how to speak in English!

Born blind at a small fishing village in the Philippines, Elsie was not able to receive formal education. She listens to music on the radio, something that she liked doing very much. Soon, her family realized that though she was blind, she had a beautiful singing voice.

Despite not having formal education or knowing how to speak in English, Elsie was able to listen well to the singers and copy what they were saying – and this made her an instant viral hit! She couldn’t speak English yet she sings so beautifully in the language and pronounces the words well.

Just like her performance of Whitney Houston’s hit song, “I Will Always Love You”, Elsie definitely nailed her cover of Beyonce’s “Listen”! No wonder her video has once again gone viral, gaining her more fans.

What made the video even more admirable is that Elsie’s stunning voice was a striking contrast to her ‘studio’ where it was recorded. Unlike well-known artists who do recordings in professional studios, Elsie did hers outside her humble nipa hut.

A fishing net was hung at her back, a silent proof that hers is a simple life in the fishing village. Yet this also proves that anyone can dream big and make their dreams come true, no matter how simple their lives might be…

Watch and be amazed by this blind Pinay singer’s performance here:

Davao del Sur, Cotabato, and Sultan Kudarat were the areas greatly affected by the series of earthquakes, but Angel had gone to Davao del Sur to provide aid for the quake-hit residents. Many are hopeful that they would also see the actress in the other areas, even if she won’t bring relief goods to them but that they could at least see her there.

She might be a huge star but Angel was quite simple and humble as she rode the truck that would deliver the supplies to the people. The trucks carried boxes of canned tuna, instant noodles, and sacks of rice.

Policeman’s ‘Malambot’ Dance Moves Got Netizens Cheering, Some Say He’s Probably Gay

Policemen are known to be tough and the perfect embodiment of masculinity – and there’s even an unspoken rule that the job is not for gays. That’s not a definite law, of course, but netizens are having a good laugh as they cheered at a policeman’s ‘malambot’ dance moves in a video that recently went viral.

Shared by Vigilantia Aeterna, the video shows a group of policemen doing their routine exercise at a covered court or gym at some place not indicated in the caption but was later identified to be somewhere in Dumangas, Iloilo Province.

When in doubt, DANCE it out!” the video was captioned.

With his ‘malambot’ dance moves that showcased his talent, the policeman danced ‘like nobody is watching’. But his moves made a lot of netizens think he is going to come out as gay soon, if he hadn’t done that already!

After all, he didn’t just sway his hips ‘like he is gay’, his hands and fingers also curled in such a way that gays often do when dancing.

Ok lng po n malambot ang beywang magaling kumembot at gumiling. Pro ung pati mga daliri at kamay ay malantik at pumipilamtik ay prang alam na dizzz..hihi,” a netizen observed.

But while netizens are one in saying he’s gay, the policeman is actually just a comedian who loves to dance and make others laugh. Identified as Patrolman Chervin Carl Delfin of the Reconnaissance Company under the Regional Mobile Force Battalion 6, this policeman is actually married and already has kids.

According to Brigada Mike Salgado, Delfin simply loves to make his friends laugh – and that’s exactly what he’s doing with the ‘gay dance’ in the video…

Woman’s Hilarious Resume to Apply as Mayor Vico Sotto’s Girlfriend Goes Viral

When Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto joked that he’s accepting applications for a girlfriend since he doesn’t have one, a lot of ladies joked that they would apply. Who couldn’t resist a challenge, considering that this handsome young man readily admitted he hasn’t had a girlfriend since birth (NGSB)!

Ang gusto ko ho sana, hindi naman tayo magiging choosy no, gusto ko sana ‘yung matalino, may itsura naman, wala namang special talaga. More than matalino, gusto ka sana same wavelength kami lalo na sa topic ng governance,” Vico said when asked what his ‘qualifications’ might be for a girlfriend.

Sana naman before 40. Sa ngayon ang masasabi ko lang diyan, Diyos na po ang bahala. Tumatanggap naman ako ng aplikante.

But everyone knows that the young mayor is just joking and would probably be too busy with his many responsibilities to even have time for a girlfriend! Of course, that did not stop a number of ladies from ‘submitting’ their applications in hopes that the young mayor would actually take notice.

One of these ‘applications’ was so creative and hilarious that it has since gained more than 35k reactions and 16k shares from amused netizens.

On her Facebook account, Hettianne Gamel her resume as she tries to apply as the mayor’s girlfriend. Her name on the resume? Hetty Spaghetti! LOL.

Netizens had a good laugh over her creative antics in the resume, joking about everything from her current address (sa bahay namin) and her future address (sa bahay mo) to ‘impressive’ qualifications, such as being a public servant (because her FB posts are public) and her work experience as YouTube ‘Mega Viewer’. LOL.

In allusion to the mayor’s “may itsura naman” requirement, she listed “may itsura” in her qualifications, adding, “may mata, ilong at bibig naman ako; pimples din”.

Netizens really had a good laugh at her motto in life, a joke that refers to Vico being a politician.

Politiko ka ba? Boto kasi parents ko sayo ih!

Do you think she’ll make it to the shortlist of candidates? We certainly hope so! LOL.

Why Make a Creative Resume?

In a world where everyone else often follows a template, it would be great to make a creative resume that would stand out from all the other applications. After all, there could be a hundred of applicants for a single position – your goal, after all, is to get noticed, right?
