X Factor Australia 2015 champion Cyrus Villanueva says his father taught him to love music


120415-cyrus_main.jpgSa isang ekslusibong panayam kay ABS-CBN News reporter MJ Felipe para sa TV Patrol, inihayag ng Aussie-Filipino “X Factor Australia” Champion na si Cyrus Villanueva na ang kanyang ama mula sa Davao ang nagmulat sa kanya sa musika.

“I pick up a ukulele about this big (motions with hands) and dad would be rehearsing, then I’ll bring my ukulele and stand next to him and strum next to him and try to copy him,” kwento ni Cyrus.

Nang makauwi siya ng Davao, doon na rin niya natuklasan ang hilig ng mga Pinoy sa pagkanta.

“Anytime that we’d go to the Philippines, every house has always karaokes and there’s always a lot of singing.”

Plano na rin daw niyang bumisita sa Pilipinas.

“It’s gonna be a busy year so hopefully there’s time for me to come over and give back.”

Filipino-Australian din ang unang nanalo ng X-Factor Australia na si Marlisa Punzalan.
