Once again, child star Awra Briguela wows the audience as he transformed into singer Rihanna.
Awra indeed proved that he deserves to be called the “Breakout Child Star” as he transformed into Rihanna on Sunday’s episode of “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids.
The performance of Awra in the hit song “Where Have You Been” was well-received.
“Kitang kita ko na sobrang comfort zone mo itong mga ganito at favorite mo si Rihanna. When you enjoy talaga your performance, nae-enjoy din naming lahat,” Sharon Cuneta told Briguela.
Judge Gary Valenciano commended Briguela for being able to show off his fun side despite his serious performance.
“Ito ‘yung first major serious number na ginawa mo. ‘Yung mga tao kanina, ‘yung mga nandito sa studio, bawas sa tawa pero mas ganun sila, ‘Wow.’ Kasi ganun ako eh,” he added.
Whereas, Ogie Alcasid was quoted saying how the child star was gifted. “Talagang very gifted ka,” Ogie says.
Aside from Briguela, the other contestants who performed Sunday were Sam Shoaf as Elvis Presley, Xia Vigor as Axl Rose and Lyca Gairanod as Jessa Zaragoza.
Hosted by Billy Crawford, “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids” airs Saturdays after “Home Sweetie Home” and Sundays after “Goin’ Bulilit.
