Dentistry Student Goes Viral for Superb Singing Voice

There are so many talented people in the Philippines. Many are even better than the popular stars but just weren’t given the break they deserve or probably weren’t discovered by talent scouts.

Thanks to social media, though, this has changed in recent years. There were many who became part of the showbiz industry, all thanks to a Facebook post or some other social media item that went viral and eventually propelled them to fame.

Recently, it seems that another budding star has been discovered.

Knowing that young dentistry student Rhea Basco from Centro Escolar University (CEU) had a great voice, her friends asked her to sing during one of their class breaks. The young lady obliged, choosing Morissette Amon’s “Akin Ka Na Lang”, a song that had lots of high notes.

One of Rhea’s friends took a video of her superb performance and uploaded the video on Facebook where it had gone viral.

Charles Sorreda posted the video with the caption, “Wala siya magawa.” (She has nothing to do.)

Despite the ‘performance’ done by a ‘bored’ student with nothing to do, it was so awesome that it got over 360k views in just one week. A lot of people also loved the video and commented how they were awestruck not just because she had a beautiful voice but also because she had a beautiful face.

In an interview with We the Pvblic, Rhea admitted that singing to her friends has always been a pastime for her.

Sila usually yung audience ko and very supportive sila sa akin,” she said.

The 4th year dentistry student admitted that she had joined a number of singing competitions, mostly in school. Just like many talented artists, she also dreamed of making it big and becoming a recording artist.

If given a chance, she would pursue a career in singing. Now that she’s become a viral internet star, perhaps we would soon see her singing alongside the stars, including her favorite artist Morissette Amon?

Sinabawang Hotdog? Andrea Brillantes Goes Viral for Tasting Oil While Cooking in Music Video

Anong lasa ng cooking oil, Andrea?” netizens couldn’t help but jokingly ask actress Andrea Brillantes after she appears to taste the oil she used for cooking hotdogs in a music video, “Tahanan.”

Andrea Brillantes Tastes Cooking Oil

OPM singer Adie’s music video for “Tahanan” started off with a cliché scene of a man waking up in bed alone, then finding his partner cooking breakfast for him. She ruffles his hair and offers him a slice of sandwich.

It’s clear that she’s really just cooking some hotdogs (nothing wrong with that, of course).

But netizens found the next scene hilarious: Andrea’s character appears to taste the soup she’s cooking, saying “Sarap!” with rounded eyes – and everyone knew she was cooking hotdogs! Ooooops.

Do you taste the oil when frying something, then say it’s delicious? Of course, not!

So, netizens had a field day laughing at Andrea, but the actress happily went along, posting “sinabawang hotdog supremacy” on her social media account.

Why Did Andrea Taste the Cooking Oil?

The biggest question in everyone’s mind is why she tasted the cooking oil in the first place? But the music video’s director and producer, Kris Cazin, clarified that it was exactly what they wanted to happen.

Okay so nag viral tayo dahil sa sinabawang hotdog. It actually worked!” Kris happily announced.

I just thought it looks dumb so I went for it. If you think it’s funny and stupid, that’s the point!

He added that this isn’t about a gender role, but wants to point out that it’s important to show appreciation to your partner, even if they don’t really know how to cook – at least they tried to do it for you, right?

Don’t expect all women, jowa, asawa, etc na marunong magluto,” he said.

Ipagluluto ka parin niya kahit di siya marunong magluto. Show mo parin ang pagtingin mo sakanya, mahal mo parin siya despite mukha siyang ewan na umiinom ng sabaw ng hotdog.

What do you think of this video?

Christian Oliver Talampas, a pen and charcoal artist, couldn’t believe that his artwork captivated the interest of his “idol” Michael Jordan. On TikTok, Christan posted a video showing his artwork of Jordan’s “Last Shot” in the 1998 NBA Finals. He asked netizens to help him reach Jordan so he could show his artwork.

Christan’s attempt didn’t go to waste as Jordan took notice of his amazing work.

As his video went viral, a collector in the USA, Bryan Apodaca took notice and coordinated with Jordan’s camp. Jordan was impressed with Christian’s skills and asked the artist to send him the artwork.

His work was sent to Jordan and was returned to him signed by the former Chicago Bulls player.

According to Christian, he didn’t expect that he would get an autograph. The most he anticipated was a photo of Jordan with his artwork and he got more!

“Ang hirap paniwalaan. Ang ine-expect ko man lang picture na hawak niya [ang artwork ko]. Pero sobra-sobra ang binigay niya dahil sabi nila parang makakatulong ito sa career ko as an artist, “he said on GMA’s 24 Oras.

Jordan’s autographs are extremely rare. His signature is currently on a shoe line which is valued at $15,000 or around P765,000.

Aside from the autograph, Christian also received several gifts. He got a picture of Jordan as he signed his artwork. There was a souvenir shirt and playing cards which Jordan personally played with.

In the Joker card of the playing cards, Jordan even wrote a message for Christian. He wrote, “Christian enjoy this deck of cards played at MJ’s Grove XXIII.”

The Grove XXIII is an exclusive golf course owned by Jordan in Florida, USA.

Jordan returned the original artwork for Christian to keep while he kept a copy.

Being a long-time fan of Jordan, Christian inspired others to not give up on their dream no matter how impossible it may seem. He motivated other artists to take their “shot” and believe in themselves.

“‘Wag kayong mawawalan ng pag-asa na magtiwala sa sarili n’yo, na maniwala kahit wala nang naniniwala sa ‘yo,” he said.

To be fair, this friend explained that she “swam” to the depths of the oceans to find this gift – and chose it because it symbolizes their friendship. After all, if you can be as close as the sardines packed in a can, then you really are super close, huh?

The friend’s analogy is, of course, easy to understand, but everyone still had a good laugh over seeing a debutante receive a sardine can.

But if you’re worried that she didn’t get a proper gift to complete her 18 treasures, don’t be. Her friend actually prepared another, more serious, gift for her but it’s really the sardines that top all the others. LOL.
