Filipinos on American Idol Season 7

Okay, so I finally decided to make a post about American Idol. Season seven has just started and good news are coming to Filipinos. The other week, we were caught by this yet to be released hit song (LOL) entitled "We're brothers forever." This week we heard the big voice of a petite Filipina.

They say Renaldo Lapuz is the next William Hung, but I don't think so. Though they have the same passion, William Hung can't sing, period. Lapuz, on the other hand, is very... Filipino. Music is in him =). And what he did, funny it may be, made me proud. In fact, a lot of people are inspired by what he did and his message. Just look at the number of videos on Youtube and messages that appreciate him.

Here are two of my favorite covers of the song "We're brothers forever" a.k.a "I am your brother" by Renaldo Lapuz:

I am your sister by Alina

This next one for me is better. A friend of mine said he had goosebumps upon hearing this version.

We are Brothers Forever by vinthomas1

Check out Youtube for more versions and remixes of the song. In the meantime, you can download DPAUL's remix for free HERE.

Last night, in the Miami auditions, we saw Ramiele Malubay follow the footsteps of Jasmine Trias. I'm glad that she showed real talent and I wish her all the best in the coming episodes.
