"Pilipinas Got Talent" Season 2 winner Marcelito Pomoy has finally met his idol Celine Dion!
Legendary Hollywood host Ellen DeGeneres made the meeting possible, shouldering his plane ticket, hotel accommodations, and his concert ticket to see Celine on the stage. Macelito shared his surreal meet and greet experience with the Grammy-winning diva on Facebook last May 24.
He said, "I am so speechless. Her security might be too strict which I understand but just to be near her is a memory that I will cherish for the rest of my life."
"Ibang-iba sa Pinas. Doon madaling lapitan, pwedeng pwedeng hilahin, pwedeng kurutin, pwedeng halikan, [at] pwedeng magpa-picture kahit saan. Dito susuot ka sa butas ng karayom."
"Hindi pwedeng magpicture gamit ang sariling camera o phone mo," he continued. "Alam mo 'yung feeling na gustong-gusto mo nang mag-video ng patago pero hindi pwede dahil ipapaiwan sa'yo lahat ng gamit mo para lang makapasok sa dressing room ni Celine Dion. May sariling photographer na magse-send na lang sa'yo ng picture at 'yun ang aantayin mo. Even sa show, walang meet and greet after the concert. Hindi rin pwedeng mag-request ng selfie. Walang ganoon. But still, this is once in a lifetime memory."
Marcelito appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres' show in October last year where he wowed the host with his ability to sing in both male and female voices.
