Gerphil Geraldine Flores is one of the many talented acts that showcased Filipino musicality to the world. She is best known as “Asia’s Golden Girl,” a moniker she got after impressing the judges and audience of the inaugural season of Asia’s Got Talent.
The German- Filipina classical-cross-over singer is a UP Diliman College of Music alumnus. In an interview, she shared that her music was heavily influenced by her mother.
“My mom usually brings me to different opera houses in Germany where I saw the stage sets and designs. I was also exposed to the works of Mozart and Beethoven at an early age, and liked it from then on. I think like I’m in another world whenever I listen to classical music,” she said.
