Renaldo Lapuz, Filipino American Idol (Video and Fan Videos)

Isang Filipino ang nagpakitang gilas sa pamamagitan ng kanyang orihinal na komposisyon sa American Idol. Pinagtawanan at natalo si Renaldo Lapuz sa American Idol audition pero para sa akin maganda ang mensahe ng kanyang kanta at siguro nga pumasok man sya hindi siya aabot sa kalidad ng mga nananalo sa American Idol.

Pero tama ang sinabi ni Simon Cowell na mag hit nga ang kanyang pinakita at ang kanyang kanta. Sa totoo nga lang ngayon pa lang ay hit na ito sa YouTube at sangkatutak ang nanunuod.

Tama rin ang komento ng iba na ang pagsabay nina Paula Abdul ay mnaaaring hindi paghanga kundi pambabastos sa kanyang pagkanta. Hindi sya ganoon kagaling kumanta, sa iba nakakatawa ang kanyang kasuotan... pero ganun pa man malakas ang kanyang loob at pinakita nya ang kanyang talento. Simple sya at matuwid na tao.

Saludo ako sayo Renaldo Lapuz. Ikaw ay magaling at dapat hangaan sa iyong sariling kakayahan.

Mabuhay Ka!

Eto ang isang kanta na nilikha mula sa kantang ito at kinanta ni Alina, "I Am Your Sister"

You knew it was just a matter of time. On the second day of American Idol Season 7 auditions, another Pinoy has made it to the show of shows.

Upon seeing previews of a contestant in a shiny silver cape and gaudy hat, I groaned knowing that he's Pinoy. I was afraid that the 44-year-old, 100% Pinoy, Renaldo Lapuz will do something completely embarassing. But as it turned out, he was so guileless and so sincere that he won me over.

Yes, he probably will be in the Worst list in the inevitable American Idol's Best & Worst, but unlike the completely deluded AI should-not-bes, Renaldo wasn't cringe-inducing (okay, maybe the costume was).

In fact, he did the most funny and entertaining audition so far. He even got the hosts to sing along and dance along with him.

The Reno, Nevada native didn't actually get the golden ticket to Hollywood (where many contestants wash out anyway) but he got something better: Fifteen minutes of fame and a prediction from his idol, Simon Cowell, that his audition piece - an original composition called "We're Brothers Forever" - will be a "hit record."

Okay, so Simon was laughing when he said that but it's not unthinkable: Renaldo could be this year's William Hung. And he already has one thing over Hung: Renaldo sings better, and I guarantee you, once you've heard him, for better or for worse, his song will stick in your mind like day-old malagkit. As one blogger described his performance: "He is freakin' hilarious!"

"If I were an American Idol, then I would give hope to those who are in despairs, and to be tough, to be strength," Renaldo said.

His English might be broken but his spirit surely wasn't when he tearfully thanked Simon after his audition for "giving a chance to everyone to sing to the whole world...to give a chance to any talent, free of charge."

Other kababayans might get crabby and start bagging on him but I hope for the opposite. Sure, talent-wise, he's no Jasmine Trias - not even AJ Tabaldo - but he just seems to be a happy Pinoy with a song in his heart so let's let him have the time of his life.

So - congrats, Renaldo! Idol ka namin.

And now, here are the lyrics to his song. All together now!

We're Brothers Forever
By Renaldo Lapuz

I am your brother
Your best friend forever
Singing this songs
The music that you liiiike!

Brothers till the end of time
Together or not
You're always in my heart
Your hurt, your feelings
And you will worry no mooore!

ang sa akin lang, wag naman sana na lalo pang kawawain ang mga kulang sa bait sa pamamagitan ng pagpatol sa kanila.

kung may magre-record nga ng kanta ni lapuz, ano ang kaibahan nito sa pagbibigay ng megaphone sa mga kawawang nilalang na nakadamit nazareno sa quiapo at nag-aakalang sila si Kristo?

the guy's sick. but sicker is he who wishes to profit from him.

Look at the bright side of Mr. Lapuz' story. He's not sick. He impressed me for showing of to the world what he is and what he can do.

Much more, Mr. Lapuz was able to see the brighter side about people specially Simon. Check a blogpost about him: http://pinoyworld.wordpress.com/2008/01/21/in- search-for-renaldo-lapuz/

I was able to watch his audition, by his looks and name, I know that he is Filipino. My suspicion was validated when he started singing. The way of he sings, he sends the message across and he is really the typical Filipino-jolly singer. I had goosebumps when he finished singing and even clapped for him in front of the TV. He made me proud of what he did, really. The courage and the passion to sing makes him astounding. Sure he is not the caliber of previous AI winners but he may have won many hearts.

Mabuhay ka nga Mang Rey :)
