Gerphil Flores Sings on Abs-Cbn's Healing Eucharist (VIDEO)

Gerphil Flores appeared on last Sunday's "The Healing Eucharist" (May 24 2015), Abs-Cbn's Sunday mass on air. The Asia's Got Talent grand finalist sang Andrea Bocelli's "I Believe" during the communion portion of the mass.

This event somehow dispels intrigues that Gerphil Flores refuses to make an appearance on the Kapamilya network. Her absence at the Sunday noontime show ASAP, after she and the other Asia's Got Talent grand finalists came back to the Philippines, did not go unnoticed. Social media was abuzz with comments from netizens, saying she might have been holding a grudge against Pilipinas Got Talent (PGT) judges, Kris Aquino and Aiai delas Alas. The two celebrities eliminated her before she was able to reach the semifinals round on the said talent show.

Gerphil, who was then using the screen name Fame Flores, was very emotional after her last performance on PGT, where she sang Sandy Patti's Via Dolorosa. Then, during the eliminations night, she made a strong statement saying she would continue to sing classical songs, despite the judges' comments. Kris and Aiai said she should instead sing songs that are right for her age, and which, the audience could easily identify with. She stood firm in her belief that this is the talent that God has given her, and she should continue to use it.

It was obvious that Gerphil got offended with the judges' lack of interest in (or understanding of) her genre. Her successful stint at Asia's Got Talent must have been a vindication for her. The "more" knowledgeable judges have, indeed, recognized the genuine talent that she possesses. However, we can also observe that she did not include any foreign language songs (other than English) in her performances at the international talent search. It looked like she also took the advice and constructive criticism of the PGT judges.
