Her fans commended her humility on the issue, but some of them suggested that she should not grant an interview from ABS-CBN, especially from Kris Aquino on her show. Other fans stressed out that Kris Aquino at Ai-Ai delas Alas are not really credible judges of Pilipinas Got Talent, and should not return to the show.
Gerphil Flores wowed the audience and all the four judges of Asia’s Got Talent during her audition when she sang “Speak Softly Love” with her high pitch opera voice. Besides receiving positive comments and standing ovation, David Foster pressed his Golden Buzzer, which means she will go straight to the finals.
For her semi-finals performance, the classical crossover singer sang “Love Story” and received another standing ovation from the judges. However, her performance during the Finals is considered a big leap for her singing career. Gerphil sang “Impossible Dream” with flying colors that really brought the house down.

“I promise you, I promise you. The world is going to know about you. That’s a promise.” David Foster told Gerphil Flores. The multi-awarded record producer has helped a lot of artists, including Charice Pempengco, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, and many more.
Meanwhile, in an exclusively interview by AXN Asia, the cable TV channel where the Asia’s Got Talent is being aired, Gerphil Flores said she was around 3 when she started to appreciate classical crossover music. If she wins Asia’s Got Talent, she will use the prize money to help her family and other aspiring musicians.
Gerphil Flores is competing against three other Pinoy talents – Gwyneth Dorado, Junior New System, and El Gamma Penumbra, along with Dance Thrilogy from Singapore, The Talento from Thailand, Triqstar from Japan, Khusugtun Band from Mongolia, and ballet dance couple, Gao Lin and Liu Xin from China.
