It’s a lucky week for child star Awra Briguela as he was named the first weekly winner of “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids” for his hilarious rendition of “Wrecking Ball” as he impersonates Mommy Dionesia Pacquiao.
Yes, it’s the third season of singing and impersonation on “Your Face Sounds Familiar” which features eight child stars of ABS-CBN, namely: AC Bonifacio, Alonzo Muhlach, Awra Briguela, Elha Nympha, Justin Alva, Lyca Gairanod, Sam Shoaf, and Xia Vigor.
On its premiere episode on January 7, the four kids who took the stage included: Xia, Elha, Justin and Awra. On the second day, it was AC, Alonzo, Lyca and Sam’s turn to shine.
The jury – Gary Valenciano, Sharon Cuneta and Ogie Alcasid, all stars in their own right, obviously had a hard time selecting the top 4 as they were all entertained and amazed by the youthful talent of the child stars of the network.
However, it’s the “Ang Probinsiyano” child star Awra who received a whopping perfect score of 24 points from the judges; winning P50,000 as prize money with another P50,000 worth of toys to be given to a charity of his choice which is Harvesters’ Foundation, Inc. as disclosed in an ABS CBN story.
Here’s his hilariously entertaining performance as Mommy D!
He is followed by AC Bonifacio, one-half of The Lucky Aces “Dance Kids” grand champion, who earned 19 points for her “Baby One More Time” impersonation of Britney Spears.
