David Foster & His Two Soprano Girls: JACKIE EVANCHO & GERPHIL FLORES

In 2010, the same year two ignorant judges blocked the Pilipinas Got Talent (PGT) chances of then teenager soprano Gerphil Flores, a 10 year-old American soprano singer  made history in the American version of the show (AGT). Jackie Evancho went on to become the youngest solo artist to go platinum- yes, a soprano singer going platinum. It's good there was no clueless AGT judge who could have told her to sing a "more age-appropriate song" instead.

UPDATE (May 15, 2015): Call it coincidence but Jackie Evancho was runner-up in the 2010 America's Got Talent, same as the Runner-up position of Gerphil Flores in the Asia's Got Talent 2015. Bodes well? I'm pretty sure David Foster will follow through with his promise to her when he pushed the Golden Buzzer. Finally, we have a Philippine product with talent & looks with commercial appeal. Charice was a tough sell, she just didn't have the goods where talent was no longer enough.
