A 17-YEAR-OLD Filipino singer made waves at the ongoing 15th season of “X Factor UK” with her rendition of a classic hit song by Prince.

Marie Laroco flew all the way from the Philippines to join the singing competition in the hopes of starting a career as singer.

“Since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to be an interna­tional superstar. I want to be big. So that’s why I am doing this be­cause I love to do it and this is my dream,” Laroco said.

Laroco’s version of Prince’s “Purple Rain” earned her a stand­ing ovation from the show’s judg­es, Robbie Williams, Ayda Field, Louis Tomlinson, and Simon Cow­ell.

She is no stranger to talent competitions as she has already competed in the Philippines’ ver­sion of “The Voice Kids” in 2014. (Neil Ramos)
