Filipina immigrant worker Rose “Osang” Fostanes continues to stun audiences abroad as she moves closer to becoming the first “X Factor Israel.”


The 47-year-old caregiver from Taguig City secured her spot in the next round, the Top 5, after getting the nod of judges and voters.

Fostanes pulled off a superb rendition of Queen’s popular “Bohemian Rhapsody,” for which judges Rami Fortis, Shiri Maimon and Ivri Lider gave a standing ovation while the audience chanted her name.

Judges agreed that the performance was “wonderful” and “amazing.”

“I know how good you are as a singer and as a person. I want everyone to know that,” said Maimon of her menteee.

The Filipina breadwinner dedicates her fight to her family.

“All my life, nobody take care of me… I’m a person who likes to take care of everybody. I don’t care of myself. All my life, I want to support them (my family). Even the last penny that I have, I have to give it to my family,” Fostanes said.

The foreign contender was joined in the Top 5 by Uri Shakib, Inbal Bibi, Eden Ben Zaken and the Fushion group.

Tamar Friedman and brothers Tommy & Yan Agami, on the other hand, were eliminated.

Fostanes, who celebrated her birthday recently, appeals to her kababayans to continue voting for her. Manila Bulletin
