Teresa Carpio's debut appearance on television in China is spectacular
When her student, famed actor and comedian Wong Cho Lam (王祖蓝) asked his good friend and vocal teacher Teresa Carpio to train him for a competition (跨界歌王) in China, little did she know that it would lead to her first ever appearance on television in that country. And not only that, but she would be singing live, in front of three judges and an audience the song made famous by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli, The Prayer.
Luckily for us - and for Cho Lam - she agreed, and the judges, and audience, were blown away by her performance, giving her a standing ovation. Almost immediately, she was one of the top searches on social media microblogging site Weibo.
Later, Teresa said how grateful she was to Cho Lam for the opportunity, and complimented the station and musicians on their professionalism. She went on to say she hopes she can perform more in China. Let's hope so!
