Marcelito Pomoy wows anew with his stellar performance of another Andrea Bocelli song for the semi-finals of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” edition 2020.
Filipino singing sensation Marcelito Pomoy amazed the world with his nearly impossible solo rendition of the popular duet, “The Prayer”, a song popularized by Andrea Bocelli and Céline Dion. While the song could actually be sung in just one voice as it was first written for a solo performance, Marcelito puts his own twist by singing the duet by himself.
The world was greatly surprised at how one man could sing both parts so beautifully! It was no doubt something that many people did not expect – and that performance quickly went viral. While he didn’t get the Golden Buzzer, Marcelito made it to the Semi-Finals through the votes of the so-called ‘Super Fans’.
But as the Semi-Finals drew near, America’s Got Talent shared a sneak peak of his upcoming performance – and it wowed the world anew! His soulful rendition of “Con Te Partirò” by Andrea Bocelli got the judges smiling and netizens around the world were impressed by his talent, again.
Many are hoping that he would win the competition, particularly because the sneak garnered nearly 3 million views in just 2 days! America’s Got Talent removed the preview video from YouTube as the show started on February 3 evening (February 4, Philippine time) but netizens didn’t mind as everyone was already looking forward to the full performance, anyway.
“If AGT has shown this on mainstream TV to drumbeat the show then they have succeeded. What better way to sell a talent show than to preview to consumers their best talent for the year, Marcelito Pomoy. Great publicity! And thank you AGT for the exposure you have given the man,” a netizen observed.
If you watched the preview, then you’re surely excited for the full video! Here it is:
Written by David Foster, Carole Bayer Sager, Alberto Testa, and Tony Renis not too many people know that “The Prayer” was actually written and originally recorded as two solos: in English by Canadian singer Celine Dion and in Italian by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli back in 1998.
It was in 1999 that the two collaborated for the duet which would become so popular that people just can’t imagine the song as a solo performance – unless it’s a “solo-duet” by Marcelito Pomoy!

As you have seen in the video, this young woman cleaned a Ford truck. At the start of the clip, AJ admits that she doesn’t know how to properly do a car wash.
She joked that she has to do a quick video in case her dad catches her messing with his car which is now being used by her sibling. She added that it’s her first time to do a car wash, but netizens (well, the guys for sure) quickly commented on the video that she’s doing the right thing.

Sitti Responds to Netizen’s Post about Her Song and Chicken Cordon Bleu at Weddings
“Ito yung pineplay sa kasalan habang nakapila ang tao sa buffet. Hayss miss ko na [chicken] cordon bleu,” a netizen jokingly lamented while alluding to Sitti’s “Para sa Akin” song. LOL.
Sitti’s Song Popular in Wedding Receptions
Pinay bossa nova singer Sitti Navarro recently went viral after responding to a netizen’s post about her song and chicken cordon bleu at weddings. The netizen was simply having some wishful thinking about attending a wedding to eat chicken cordon bleu while Sitti’s song, “Para sa Akin”, plays in the background as the guests choose food from the buffet table.
The singer laughed at how people have come to associate the song with wedding buffets (and chicken cordon bleu since this is a popular reception menu). She also admits that she misses attending and singing at weddings or other special events. Though she did not mention it, Sitti refers to the lack of events due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Amused over the netizen Ron Ron’s comment about her song, Sitti promised to sing at his wedding. She also jokingly promised to pay for the cordon bleu, adding that she will definitely not scrimp on that order.
Soon, the post reached the netizen who commented on the post. It turned out to be a certain Ron Aldwin De Ramos who wrote, “Salamat Ms. Sitti Navarro at dun sa ig user na nakapansin ng post ko! Hahaha sana po kayo ang kumanta sa kasal ko at isang tray ng cordon bleu ang inyo hahahahaha char!!”
Meanwhile, a lot of netizens commented that they feel the same way that Ron Ron does when they hear Sitti’s song because this is often played in the weddings that they had attended.
“Pag pineplay to naaamoy mo yung mga handa sa buffet. Hahaha,” one wrote.
“Kanya kanyang plate kasi sa buffet kaya bagay yung song na “Para sa kain”(Akin) 😂😂😂,” another joked.
