Filipino Wins, In the Xfactor Israel

Filipino Wins, In the Xfactor Israel.


Rose “Osang” Fostanes’ astonishing victory in local reality franchise “X Factor Israel” isn’t just a win for a Filipina working as  caregiver to an ailing woman in the capital city of Tel Aviv.

Fostanes—who won the hearts the Israeli audience —has finally given the word “Filipino” another meaning besides ‘caregiver’ in this part of the world.

On January 14 (January 15 in Manila), Osang brought the house down when she performed Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” and Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You” in the show’s finale.

Her classy rendition of the Filipinos’ favorite videoke song, matched with a full orchestra, got a standing ovation from the judges—rock singer Rami Fortis, singer- composer Moshe Peretz, pop singer Ivri Lider, and Maimon—and the audience, which included her Filipina girlfriend who flew all the way from the Philippines.
