PHILIPPINES- A blind Filipina singer wowed the judges of “La France a un Incroyable Talent” (France Has Incredible Talent) after her emotional rendition of a French song.
Iloilo-native Katchry Jewel Golbin, also known Alienette Coldfire, sang the French version of “I Dreamed a Dream” from the musical “Les Miserables.”
Her rendition sent judges to standing ovation with Helena Segara moved tears. Other judges Eric Antoine, Gilbert Rozon and Kamel Ouali were also amazed by her performance.
A French news site Tele Star said Golbin learned how to speak French because she wanted to understand a French song when she was still young.
This was not the first time Golbin appeared in popular TV shows. She also auditioned for Pinoy Idol in 2008. TNF
