That was April 5, 2008, when I saw my friend, Darling Vera Maria D. Vicente, on tv auditioning for the very 1st ever Pinoy Idol. Truly she has a good voice after ranking as 1st runner up in The Search for Iligan Star just this year. Like me, she is also from Iligan City National High School and a member of the STUDENT PEER FACILITATORS! I could still remember when I let her sing during her undertrainee days in the SPF. She was good before and now, she's even better.
Darling got her golden ticket to Manila after she wows the three judges of Pinoy Idol in her very wonderful version of "Nakapagtataka."
