Kris Aquino says PGT Grand Winner Marcelito Pomoy really deserves to win


070311-kris_main.jpgEven early on during the Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2 competition, Kris Aquino was very vocal about her admiration for Marcelito Pomoy’s singing talent. When Marcelito recently appeared on Kris TV, Kris joked about wanting to marry him, which she also said during the PGT season 2 grand finals.

Unang rinig mo sa kanya, kikilabutan ka talaga sa galing,” said Kris in a recent interview. She added that her assessment of Marcelito was right when her singer-friends noticed how good Marcelito’s voice is. “Na-realize ko na tama ang opinyon ko about his voice when ZsaZsa (Padilla) said he’s pitch-perfect na very rare talaga, na ang head tone mo makakaya mong pitch-perfect,” explained the Queen of Talk.

Kris continued that what makes Marcelito even better is that he can switch the tone of his voice between female and male. “Tapos ‘yung pag-switch from head tone to chest tone kung ‘yung normal voice, tatlo kaya niya, eh ang galing daw talaga ang sinabi ni Zsing (ZsaZsa) sa akin na wala yang formal training, can you imagine ‘pag naturuan pa yan?” Another singer, Jed Madela, who is known for being a male belter, also told Kris that he was impressed by Marcelito. “Napanood ko siya sa ASAP with Jed tapos sinabi ni Jed talaga na para raw magkaiba sila, nag-head tone si Marcelito, siya (Jed) nag-normal voice. ‘Yung mga litid daw niya (Jed) rito parang puputok para makipagsabayan.”

And unlike other PGT contestants, Kris mentioned that Marcelito never used his life story to get sympathy from the judges or from viewers. “Hindi niya ginamit ang portion ng buhay niya sumali lang siya for his talent na, ‘Oh judge me on this.’

“What I really like about him we’re so used to people telling us their life story para as a judge magustuhan mo. Alam mo ‘yung magkaroon ng sympathy factor. Sa kanya we never knew na until the end nga na ganun pala, pasok na siya semis, dun ko lang nalaman na there was a time tumira siya sa kulungan, yung mommy na kelan n’ya lang nakita.”

The host-actress also hoped that Marcelito goes a long way now that he gets the chance to penetrate showbiz. “I really hope na siya alagaan niya itong talent so ABS-CBN can develop it some more.”
