Have you ever experienced a certain moment where you were given more than what you aimed for? It's like winning the lottery isn't it?
I wonder if this is what 10-year-old Eleana Gabunada from the Philippines must have felt like when she snagged the final golden buzzer in the popular talent search Asia's Got Talent. One judge fell in love with her amazing voice and it was none other than record producer David Foster!
Wearing a bright yellow dress, Eleana went on stage with a shy smile on her face. The young girl introduced herself and Anggul. Another judge asked her about what she wanted to be someday. Eleana said she wanted to be a performer and a Broadway singer.
For her audition piece, Eleana was set to perform Barbara Streisand's "Rain On My Parade". With just a few words in her performance, the judges and the audience were instantly blown away! The shy girl turned out to be such an amazing singer!
Eleana definitely looked like she was enjoying the lively song. Her emotions showed in the way she sang the words, how her hands and body moved and how her faced conveyed the song's meaning. Without a doubt this young girl sings like a young Broadway singer!
Everyone in the audience was cheering for her and they couldn't believe that a young girl like her could have such an amazing voice. The song was definitely full of life and energy. It was a difficult song and yet Eleana proved that she has the vocal chops to nail it!
David Foster was evidently enjoying her performance as he bopped his head and clicked his fingers all throughout the song number. Eleana was dancing to the music and everyone in the crowd was just at awe of what was unfolding before their very eyes.
When she finally ended her song on a very strong note the room totally erupted with loud cheers! David even gave her a standing ovation, something that we don't usually see him do on the show. Eleana was so phenomenal and she was an absolute delight to watch onstage!
When it was time to vote Anggul gave a very big and joyful "Yes" while Jay Park, the show's third judge, noted the fact that David stood up to applaud the young girl's performance was somthing big. He also said "Yes".
When it was David's turn to cast his vote, everyone in the room fell quiet. David was looking at the young girl intently and to everybody's surprise the record producer hit the Golden Buzzer!
Yellow confetti fell from the ceiling and the cheering in the crowd got even stronger than before. Eleana was so happy because getting a Golden Buzzer meant she will go straight to the semi-finals where she is closer to winning the $100,000 grand prize!
It was such a sweet moment for the ten-year-old. Eleana may be young, but she can really sing! David saw real talent and believed in her, something that she will surely get inspiration from when she moves on to the semi-finals.
This girl's amazing talent will definitely blow you away!
