After emerging victorious and named as the first ever winner of the X-Factor Israel on Tuesday, Rose ‘Osang’ Fostanes was greeted by the Filipino nation.
Netizens immediately aired their congratulatory messages to Fostanes over social networking sites.
Though working as an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) in Israel, the judges played fair in deciding who will win the contest.
Though it seems strange, the song “My Way” which many Filipinos believe brings bad luck once they sing it, but for Fostanes it wasn’t the case as she got a standing ovation from judges and the audience.
Osang said she didn’t even expect to reach the finals of the contest. But once her named was called, she broke into tears.
At least 20,000 OFWs are working in Israel, many of which are cleaners and caregivers.
Meanwhile, the Palace also extended their congratulatory message to Fostanes.
