Filipino Singer Lance Busa Wins Michael Bolton’s Talent Search


Another Filipino is grabbing the hearts and headlines on the international stage.

LANCE BUSA emerged as the champion of Star World’s “BOLT OF TALENT,” a talent search backed by Grammy-award winning balladeer MICHAEL BOLTON.
Busa, 22, bags a recording deal and a chance to join Bolton on his world tour.

Busa battled it out with Nawinda “Mild” Sittatikarnvech from Thailand in a finale that aired on Star World Wednesday.

He was the last Pinoy standing on the show after the elimination of 28-year-old Hans Dimayuga. The two were part of a selection of eight talents.

The other contenders were Cassandra Anne and Gregory Ramanado from Malaysia, Tsui Fang “Dena” Chang and Wei-Chen “Holly” Lou from Taiwan, and Jutarat “Paige” Mangkalarangsee from Thailand.

Bolton is a singer-songwriter whose hits include “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” and “Go the Distance” from Disney’s 1997 animated film “Hercules.”

MABUHAY and Congratulations, Lance!
