Early this year, Tandingan impressed the Chinese audience of “The Singer 2018” with her rendition of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”, a performance which earned her the top spot during her first week in competition.
The soul-R&B singer revealed that the main reason she decided to join the said competition was to promote her music and get necessary exposure in China.
“That was our goal … Winning the show didn’t cross our minds; we knew that would be a tall order. I’m just thankful for the opportunity, because not many foreign artists manage to get in,” Tandingan said.
“I hope what I accomplished could also help other local artists looking for a break abroad,” she added.
Now, Tandingan is busy preparing for her major solo concert titled “Supreme” which will be held on June 22 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
