After Jasmin Trias and Camile Velasco, another Filipino made it as one of the 24 finalist of American Idol.
The very pretty 20 year old Ramiele Macrowon-Malubay, a native of Miramar, Florida, who once said â€¦
If Jasmin can do it, I can do it!
â€¦ freaked out after knowing she is included in the final 24. Ramiel established her attachment with music early at the age 12 when she sang in her cousinâ€™s birthday. The very talented Filipina can also play the piano as well as the guitar which is being taught to her by her sister. Besides singing and playing instruments, she also did some Polynesian Dancing since she was on the first grade.
The â€œPinay American Idolâ€ is a huge fan of Regine Velasquez. She said that she really doesnâ€™t want to be famous but instead, represent the Asian community especially the Filipinos in this competition where the whole world is watching.
And guess what, like every Filipino; Ramiele Malubay also tried eating balot (balut)…
The weirdest thing I have ever eaten, balot (balut), Itâ€™s like a … I think itâ€™s a duck egg. Itâ€™s cooked but thereâ€™s a baby inside. … I donâ€™t know, I donâ€™t eat it anymore. But it tastes good if you eat the outside part, instead of the baby inside.
Ramiele stopped nursing school for this season and promised to go back if not chosen to be the next American Idol.
Just like Renaldo Lapuz, itâ€™s really a pleasure to see another Filipino in the limelight of this season. If you are listening Ramiele, you are an American Idol for us all and we are certain that you will outstrip the other finalists.
Ramiele was eliminated this April 2 from her last performances of “Do I Ever Cross Your Mind” original by Dolly Parton
