Talented Girl Searching for Missing Dad, Wows Judges on “Idol Philippines”

Angie Kristine made the judges cry
A 16-year-old girl from Siargao traveled all the way to Metro Manila to join the auditions of “Idol Philippines” in hopes that this would help her find her missing dad.

Angie Kristine made the judges cry with her heartbreaking backstory as she shared how she was still small when her dad went abroad. He had called the family and sent money once, but they never heard from him again.

By joining “Idol Philippines”, Angie hopes that her story could reach him and that he would come home to their family so they could be reunited. The teen cried on stage.

When she was given some water, she asked for a hug from the staff whom she probably saw as a father figure. This would lead the judges to stand up and give her a hug as well.

But Angie is more than just a pretty face who wanted exposure on national TV. Because aside from her fresh beauty – and that’s without makeup! – she also had a beautiful voice.

Angie’s rendition of “Jar of Hearts” by Christina Perri was made even more impressive by the raw emotion one could hear in her voice.

The sad song brought tears to some of the judges as well as netizens who would later watch the video on the show’s official social media pages.

It was quite impressive that Angie was able to hold herself together and sing the song so well, despite her voice actually cracking with emotion. She managed to finish the song before finally crying her heart out.

Many are hoping she would win this thing – and even if she doesn’t, at least that she would find her missing dad…
