MANILA – A blind Filipina singer moved to the next round of “La France a un Incroyable Talent” (France Has Incredible Talent) after she impressed the panel of judges with her vocal prowess.
For her performance, Katchry Jewel Golbin, who also goes by the name of Alienette Coldfire, sang the French version of “I Dreamed a Dream” from the musical “Les Miserables.”
Her rendition sent judge Helena Segara to tears, and left judges Eric Antoine, Gilbert Rozon and Kamel Ouali in awe of her talent.
According to an article by French news site Télé Star, Alienette persevered to learn the French language because she wanted to understand the lyrics of “La Vie en Rose” by Edith Piaf, who is one of her idols.
Two years ago, Alienette also made headlines after a video of her effortlessly belting out Mariah Carey's version of "I'll Be There" inside a mall made the rounds online.
At the time the video became viral, Carey had just concluded the Manila leg of her "Elusive Chanteuse" tour.
