Philip Galit a.k.a. Shadow Ace has a similar success story with Pia Wurtzbach.
Philip Galit a.k.a. Shadow Ace is the first Filipino who entered the grand finals of Asia’s Got Talent Season 3 and in an interview with ABS-CBN News, he admitted that he almost gave up his craft but he was inspired by Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach’s success story.
Pia had three attempts in winning the Miss Universe Philippines title in Binibining Pilipinas and soon ended the drought and won the crown in 2015.
"Na-inspire lang talaga ako ni Pia Wurtzbach," he said.
Philip believed that his talent might not have a place on a big stage but he auditioned again for the third time to try his luck. However, he thought that if he got rejected then he would stop auditioning.
"Kasi ganun din po ako eh. Sabi ko, 'Sige, last na ito. Kapag hindi pa ito nag-work, wala na'."
Philip got one of the golden buzzers and he impressed the judges with his semifinals performance.
If he wins, Philip will take home the grand prize of $100,000 (more than P5 million).
