Roel Manlangit has joined PGT. The street kid from Valencia City, who’s been called by social media as “Bukidnon Boy” after his video went viral online in September 2012, conquered ABS-CBN’s talent search show.
He belted out Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” during the Mindanao leg of “Pilipinas Got Talent” auditions which was aired Sunday, March 23, on the Kapamilya network.
Manlangit reflected a typical Filipino who take hindrances and problems as challenges to strive for more. His mother left him when he was 8 years old. Their home was washed away by Pablo last November 2012. Luckily for him, a kindhearted neighbor offered a new shelter for him and his father.
“Pangarap ko pong manalo sa PGT para makatulong po sa aking pamilya. Pangarap ko pong makatayo ng bahay,” said Manlangit
