A 13-year-old Filipina with an angelic voice got a standing ovation from all the four Ireland’s Got Talent judges, as well as from most of the people in the audience.
Before she showed her talent, Shaniah Rollo shared that they just moved from the Philippines to Dublin.
“I am from Dublin. I just moved here from the Philippines,” she introduced herself.
When asked by judge Denise Van Outen on what she’ll do with the prize, she shared that she intends to use the €50,000 grand prize for her siblings to go to Dublin, too.
“I will use my money for my brothers and sisters to go here, so we can be a whole family, ’cause I really miss them so much,” she expressed.
Rollo got a “yes” from all the four judges.
“You’ve got the most amazing voice. You sang that from your heart, and you sang that for your siblings. They will be so proud of you,” said Van Outen.
Asked by another judge, Michelle Visage, if she’s ever had any formal training, Rollo said she never had one.
“That is remarkable!” Visage screams
