"My Way," A Filipina's Journey to Victory



I can't sing, I can not even whistle a tune! Perhaps not even an allora student series bb clarinet model aacl-336 could tame my voice.

But a fellow Filipina- Rose Fostanes swept a foreign nation off their feet performing songs of different genre in X-factor Israel.


She makes me so proud of  our race that it feels almost as if I could also belt out Frank Sinatra's "My Way" without scaring off the entire neighborhood!

Join me follow her journey to victory through video performances I borrowed from youtube and get that "goody good" feeling of being one with the crowd and a winner who takes it all!

When asked whether she thinks she could win the competition (X-factor Israel), this 46 y/o lady from the Philippines working in Tel Aviv Israel singing for a huge crowd for the very first time said she will try her best. Apparently her best wowed the judges and they gave the following comments and was rendered a standing ovation!

  • "take it in, take it in because you deserve it so much" "...
  • "sounded like a CD playing, so perfect!"
  •  "I just can not believe this is your first time on stage, it's crazy...no words!"
Still single because all she did was work for her family caring for old people in a foreign country, something she loved doing so much the lyrics of the song by Shirley Bassey she sang for the audition perfectly describes her LIFE...
