Danica “Bilog” Tiongson joined “Tawag ng Tanghalan” Kids and everyone at the It’s Showtime! studio had the chance to see her up close. She was Saturday’s Metro Manila contender.
Tiongson was first discovered in the “Noong Ako’y Bata Pa” video which became viral last January. The video became so popular they were even parodied by celebrities. In the video, there were two children – Danica “Bilog” Tiongson was singing ‘Dance with My Father’ in Tagalog and the other, Budak, was distracting her.
Last month, Kicker Daily reported about the inside story of the heartbreaking video. According to their mother, Danica took a video of herself singing “Dance with my Father” because she misses her father terribly. She wanted to upload the video on Facebook; hoping it would reach her father who left them for another woman.
Now, Tiongson is on an even bigger stage to express her sadness and longing for her father and the It’s Showtime! judges supported her all the way. In the video below, you can even see Yeng Constantino encouraging her to belt it out and sing her heart out during her performance.
