“The Voice” may not be for everyone, but talent cannot be denied–when you’ve got it, you’ve got it. And the Filipina caregiver recently won the Israeli version of “The Voice” thanks to a serious set of pipes.
The 47-year-old Rose Fostanes has been living in Israel for six years, working as a caregiver to send money home to her family in the Philippines. The budding superstar captivated the voters of the country with her run on the popular singing program. Having made it to the final four, Fostanes took the prize with her performances of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way,” Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You” and the 80s classic “Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics.
Fostanes hasn’t quite got a handle on her newfound fame. “It’s a big change in my life because before nobody recognized me, nobody knew me. But now everybody, I think everybody in Israel knows my name. And it is very funny.”
