Just when everyone is reminiscing about the past year, I thought of reminiscing, too…but way way way back. I was talking to some of my friends on Facebook and one of them showed me this very old clip of Banig Roberto, the original Charice Pempengco.
The description on Youtube says…
Josephine Banig Roberto represented the Philippines in the International Star Search Competition hosted by Ed McMahon where she emerged as the Junior Vocalist Grand Champion for her rendition of Chuck Jackson hit ” Anyday Now ” in Los Angeles, California in 1989. Soonafter her Star Search victory, she guested on the Arsenio Hall Show, making her the first Filipina singer to guest in an American TV show.
Such an amazing talent. I am youtube-ing a few more videos of her and at such a young age, she sure is a fire cracker.
Takes me way back to the Star Search days…the original American Idol.
On that note, I also remembered this dancing group Four Boys And A Babe. They had the same dance moves every time they performed but of course, they are cute so they get away with it. When I watched then, they never ever lost and always got perfect scores.
Here are two videos for u.
Watch after the jump…
