I cried watching her story on MMK with Viveika Ravanes and I cried meeting her in person during her debut album launch under Star Records Philippines. Pinay caregiver turned X Factor Israel Grand Winner Rose Fostanes was the humble and funny big lady with a big heart sharing her experience at the launch of her debut album at Sir Boy's Food Republique yesterday. Launched at ASAP 19 last Sunday where she sang one of her carrier singles and one of Filipinos' videoke favorites, "Bakit Ako Mahihiya", Rose Fostanes had gone so busy with so many gigs and concerts here and abroad. Today she flew back to Israel to accomplish singing commitments abroad and will be back to promote her album under Star Records Philippines.
She sang to the media her favorite song "My Way" also included in her album. With two original tracks namely "Ris" and "If This Is Love", you'll be surprised at her voice sounding like Beyonce and definitely world-class. Our Pinoy Pride Rose Fostanes singing live was a hair-raising experience. Watching her on TV is a different experience. I really love her version of the old time classic, "This Is My Life" and "Neither One Of Us". The album titled, "Rose Fostanes: My Way" also features other soulful renditions, "Rain", "Forever's Not Enough" and her winning piece, "My Way".
I felt how much she is grateful for the recognition when I've mentioned watching her story on MMK and she also cried when I said she is now an inspiration to many young dreamers today. Her journey to winning the X Factor Israel and her surprising bubbly personality should open her more doors for other talent opportunities. Thank you Mam Rose Fostanes for the opportunity to meet you in person!
