REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – She was featured on Balitang Showbiz in the past for her successful stint to the top six on last season’s hit talent competition, X-Factor.
Now, Bay Area-based Filipino-American singer Ellona Santiago is making headlines on her own.
During her X-Factor run, she wowed the judges week after week. But after making it to the show’s top 6, the TV audience voted her off.
But that elimination has not stopped the 17-year old kababayan from chasing her dreams, while staying true to her Pinoy roots.
After performing up and down the West Coast at events benefiting Philippine typhoon victims and getting recognized by a number of state and local officials in California, Ellona is back on stage, in her first solo concert. And it opens here in the Bay Area.
Find out more about her journey to the top in this studio interview at Balitang America.
