SOUL Supreme KZ Tandingan, who recently made headlines for her electrifying performance and beating her idol Jessie J in the fifth episode of China’s “Singer 2018,” said she hopes her stint on China’s top-rating show will open more opportunities for Filipino artists to showcase their talent worldwide.

“It makes me proud to be Pinoy. I’m just hoping that after this competition, many doors will open not just for me but also for Filipino performers now that foreigners recognize the artistry and excellence of Filipino performers. I’m just really thankful that we were given this opportunity,” said KZ, whose jaw-dropping rendition of “Rolling in the Deep” featured a rap in Tagalog.

The Star Music artist also said that she hopes more OPM artists will be invited to compete in the next season of “Singer 2018,” which attracts over 200 million viewers weekly.

“Singer 2018” is China’s most popular reality TV singing competition and pits professional singers from around the world against each other, as they vie to win audience votes.

KZ is scheduled to perform again in “Singer 2018’s” next episode tonight on Hunan TV.
