Another Pitiful Story Of A Filipina



I found this video clip from YouTube about a Filipina entertainer who left the Philippines in search for a better life. She auditioned for Britain's Got Talent in order for her to gain more popularity hence more job and more earnings to support her two children whom she left in the Philippines.

Madonna Decena blew the judges and audience away on Britains Got Talent 2008 with a breathtaking performance of this famous Whitney Houston song I Will Always Love You. This 33 year-old from the Philippines lived up to her billing, as she wowed the judges and audience with her powerful performance and heart-felt story.

In tears and a little unsure of herself, Madonna walked onto the stage and told everyone her reason for being there.

Six months ago she flew out to Britain in the hope of creating a better life for herself and two young daughters. Agonisingly she had to leave her precious children behind with their grandparents in the Philippines, until she had raised enough money to send for them.

This audition was a dream come true for Madonna, it was potentially life-changing, and when the panel told her she had made it to the next round... it was as if all her dreams had been answered. Life's really hard in the Philippines and it is becoming harder and harder each day... God bless the Philippines!

There is another Filipino in BGT. He is a half-pinoy/half-british 10 year old boy (mom is full Filipina)named CHARLIE GREEN who IMHO is more impressive than Madonna. He not only sings well but can also dance, play the keyboards, guitar and flute. Search for his video in youtube or click this link:

I agree with you Doc Abner. You know what unfortunately, there is a privileged class that lives above all these hardships in our country. These people belong to big biz, government, military, police. They do not feel what we feel.
