Filipinos, without a doubt, have long been known worldwide to possess great talent – especially in music. And this time – another singing sensation in the Philippines has proven that she can sing and hit those high notes, no matter what kind of challenge she’s in!

In a video from the weekly evening show, Gandang Gabi Vice Yung Totoo, Katrina Velarde faced several ‘levels’ of challenges singing Celine Dion’s iconic song ‘All by Myself’. Level 1 was the regular version without any hindrances. Level 2 saw Velarde’s nose pinched with clothes tongs while the level 3 challenge had her sing the song while doing a ‘limbo rock’.

The final challenge had Velarde sing the song while riding a rocking mechanical bull!

Velarde was first exposed to the world of music as she joined several singing contests from a young age. It was her stint at X-Factor Philippines in 2013 that gave her the big break she needed.

After which, she went viral after she posted her impressive singing skills while using a comb as a makeshift mic, earning her the title ‘Suklay Diva’. She has since been making more covers with the same setup, aptly called ‘Suklay Covers’ reaching millions of views per upload. Her popular covers include Ellie Goulding’s “Burn,”, Kuh Ledesma’s “Till I Met You” as she attempts to do renditions of internationally acclaimed singers like Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and more.
