Tutti Caringal wins top spot as Ely Buendia


052515-tutti_main.jpgOn Your Face Sounds Familiar,  Tutti Caringal won the top spot for the first time, for his impersonation of Ely Buendia, lead vocalist of the Pinoy rock band Eraserheads. Tutti performed “Paraluman” with his band 6 Cycle Mind.

As an added oomph to his performance and an added treat to the audience, Tutti and his band borrowed the instruments of Eraserheads and used it in their performance. He proudly shared that the guitar he used was used by Ely in his first two albums and for the music video of “Ang Huling El Bimbo.”

Tutti also gained accolade from the judges because he not only looked like Ely, he also sounded like the iconic singer.

Jay-R, who performed an Alanis Morissette impersonation, was at the top spot after the judges gave their score but Tutti outscored him after the other contestants gave their scores to him.

Tutti becomes emotional as he accepted his cash prize and said that he was determined to win even once so that he could help the Local Government Unit of Cabuyao, Laguna, where he is serving as a councilor.
