Filipino singer Hannah Precillas of Bohol has made it to the Top 6 of Dangdut Academy Asia 5 (D’ Academy) in Indonesia.
The GMA Network Kapuso artist successfully made a great impression among the judges and the audience for showing off her singing prowess.
The remaining Filipino contestant in the international competition wowed the crowd with her rendition of the Indonesian song, Nafsu Serakah, during the December 17 episode of D’ Academy.
In the same episode, the 23-year-old Filipino singer was also given a surprise when the host called on stage Precillas’ boyfriend and bandmate Oyo who gifted her a necklace. The two Pinoy musicians then performed together with Hannah singing a cover of Alicia Keys’ hit “If I Ain’t Got You” while her beau accompanied her by playing the trumpet.
The Pinay singer also received the highest score during the previous round of the competition aired on December 12. Hannah received the highest scores for her performance of the two Indonesian songs, Bride Flower and Never Mind, which gave her the right to advance to the next round.
Hannah previously won the grand prize of GMA 7’s talent competition, “Bet Ng Bayan 2014”, which opened doors for her in the local music industry.
Aside from her appearances in several GMA Network’s shows, Hannah has also recorded songs such as “Kanlungan” and “Nang Dahil Sa’Yo”. Her songs were used as soundtracks to soap operas “Kambal Karibal” and “Hahamakin Ang Lahat”, where Hannah earned the title OST (Official Soundtrack) Princess.
Hannah Precillas is one among millions of Filipinos who have a passion for music. This 2019 alone, several Filipinos received recognition for their singing talent, among them, Miss Saigon musical theater actress Aicelle Santos who snagged silver at the ASEAN Singing Competition in Vietnam.
America’s Got Talent (AGT) Season 12 runner up winner Angelica Hale made ‘herstory’ for earning two Golden Buzzer, one from her first stint and the second during her comeback for the AGT Championship edition.
