Now, “I Love OPM” is on its second week and third episode and it has been a blast and enjoyable one. The four foreign performers did great in their performances so check how these foreigners fare this week.
Sumner Mahassey is from the USA. His parents are formerly missionaries and took his turn in Visayas. In fact, he is very good in Bisaya dialect than Tagalog. He is one of the members in Hey Joe Show on YouTube which gained a lot of Filipino viewers, particularly in Visayas. He sang the song “Pag-ibig” by Yeng Constantino, which he performed simply and just cool. He got positive comments from the judges.
Victor Cervantes came from San Fracisco, California in USA. He’s been a long time Latino singer and even became an opening act in concert which included Shakira. His love for OPM started when he met and became friends with a Filipino. He sang the song “Kailangan Kita” by Gary Valenciano. It’s a fine performance but quite clear in his accent that he’s not a Filipino. He is a fan of Angelica Panganiban and even did a drama as he took her role.
Jerome McQuin is from the USA who now lives in Taguig. When schooling in the US, his friends were Filipinos. One of his Filipino friends invited him to go to the Philippines and he came. He is worried at that time as he stayed here because he has no work and ran out of money. But he met a Filipino which helped him and now he became a businessman. He performed the song “Kawawang Cowboy” by Fred Panopio. Everybody were fascinated with his performance.
Amira Fathin is from Malaysia and joined in some international competitions. She loves singing songs with different languages. She loved OPM and joined because she wants to learn more about the Philippines. She even auditioned before in Singapore Idol and sang Jessa Zaragoza’s “Bakit Pa?”. In tonight’s episode, she performed “Bukas na Lang Kita Mamahalin”. Since the show started, she is the best vocalist who joined the competition. After the performance, she got the chance to sing a duet with Lani Misalucha.
