French Guy Sings 'Pinoy Ako' On Youtube
A young French guy made an awesome cover of the Filipino song, "Pinoy Ako," on Youtube.

Hugo Lieber, a 16-year-old lad from Paris, France, has done a number of covers but with his latest one, he decided to do the Tagalog song, which was originally sung by Orange and Lemons for the reality TV show "Pinoy Big Brother."

NoypiStuff contacted the talented singer to ask what made him cover the song; if he personally knew anyone from the Philippines; or if he actually has Filipino blood in his veins and if he knows how to speak the Filipino language. Here’s what he has to say as response to these questions:

"First of all, thanks for your support!! Yes, I know a Filipino who works for my family and knows I sing. He suggested I do a song in Tagalog, and after hearing Pinoy Ako, I loved the tune, found the chords, and decided to cover it. I'm not at all Filipino, I'm French-American, and I only know a few words in Tagalog. I'm just very open to other cultures and languages, and thought it would be fun to cover a Filipino song!"

Check out Hugo's rendition of "Pinoy Ako" below:
Great job and salamat, Hugo! Mabuhay ka!

Joe Marie Ballon (X-Ray Technologist, Years away from home: 5):

"The most difficult part of working abroad is being far from family. I haven't been home for a long time because my father got sick. He's almost blind now. Instead of spending for the ticket home, I would rather send him money to buy medicine."

Leonie Villanueva (Caregiver, Years away from home: 9): "When winter comes, it's so difficult! Even when I'm sick, I would force myself to go to work. I can't go home, no matter how much I want to. I have bills to pay every month and all my children are depending on me."

Joey Doble (Babysitter, Years away from home: 11): "I can get very sad. I'm all alone here. I have not seen my youngest son. When I left, he was just 1 year old."

Til one day (April 12, 2011), i got bored to death... i decided to make a random video which was "Make Up Tutorial by Petra M". That's how it all started. :)

Petra Mahalimuyak, on the other hand, is my alter ego. She's the exaggerated version of me. She'll do whatever she wants. She sincerely doesn't give a PACK. ;) And if the accent is really bothering you.... well, sucks to be you 'cause you don't have some sense of humor. Joke's on you, buddy. ;) Jon't heyt, aprisheyt! (Don't hate, appreciate!)

*I absolutely love entertaining people! It's a passion of mine. (wow, cheesy) It makes me super happy when i make all/most of you laugh. I love to dance, act, sing, cook & have fun! I don't take things too seriously. I just go w/ the flow! Yes, I enjoy life to the fullest! Like i said, "Life is short. So don't make it shorter!"

News flash: THE ACCENT IS FAKE. How many times do i have to say that? Seriously. :)) it's for entertainment purposes only. Thank you very much. :)
