Another Pinoy Talent, Eleana Gabunada, Gets The Golden Buzzer In 'Asia's Got Talent'

ANOTHER PINOY TALENT shines in “Asia’s Got Talent” and goes straight to the semi-finals. The first one was hand artist Shadow Ace. Now comes 10-year old Eleana Gabunada, who got a standing ovation from judge David Foster who gave his Golden Buzzer after she gave a rousing rendition of the classic Barbara Streisand’s “Rain on My Parade.”

David declared: “There’s a lot of people much older than you that could sing that song, but they don’t understand the genre…but somehow at age 10, you understand your mission, and you understand your job and there’s no doubt in my mind that if you want to be on Broadway one day, you will.”

Anggun was equally floored by her performance, proclaiming that Eleana performed like a “baby Streisand”.

“I think you’re the only act that made David stand up,” Jay Park added.

Eleana goes straight to the Semi-Finals in March where she will have a shot at the USD100,000 grand prize and the winning title. She previously joined The Voice Kids Philippines' Season 3 on ABS-CBN and was mentored by Coach Lea Salonga who wrote that she is now so thrilled for Eleana’s venture in “Asia’s Got Talent”.
