Filipina in singing competition E-mail

The Philippine embassy in Israel congratulated an 11-yearold filipina musical sensation who was placed second in the prestigious Beit Sefer Le Musica singing competition in Israel recently.

According to the embassy, Kathleen Louise Eligado’s success was even more impressive as she was the only non-Israeli who joined the contest and was bestowed with an award.

A sixth grade student of the Alef Dalet Gordon School in Tel Aviv, Eligado’s mentor is Mati Caspi, a prominent musician and well respected singer, song writer, and conductor.

Her rendition of Christina Aguilera’s I Am Beautiful and On my Own earned her a US$2,500 musical scholarship and an exclusive contract with Teddy TV.
