Finally, what we have been wishing for all along has become a reality.

GenSan wonder boy, Aldrich Lloyd Talonding, who along with his cousin, guitarist James Walter Bucong, finally guested at the Ellen Degeneres’ show, ELLEN!

aldrich, ellen degeneres

A few months back, Ellen Degeneres invited the two young residents of General Santos City on her show after watching their YouTube video of Aldrich singing “Dance With My Father” accompanied by James on the guitar, after it had gone viral.


The episode of the two boys’ visit on Ellen’s show was aired last September 12, 2013.  The two boys were afforded a standing ovation by her studio audience.  To top it all, Aldrich, whose father died last month, was gifted with a piano and a guitar along with $10,000 cash from one of Ellen’s partner foundations.

Aldrin and James’ appearance on a major TV program comes at the heels of another young talented performer from General Santos City whose video of her singing inside a mall also went viral and eventually, landing her a guest stint at Ellen’s show sometime in 2012.

Her name? Zendee Rose Tenerefe.  (WATCH HER VIDEO BY CLICKING HERE.)  Ibang klase talaga ang mga taga-GenSan.

Meanwhile here’s Aldrich Lloyd Talonding and James Walter Bucong at the Ellen Degeneres show,  making us all feel that Pinoy pride once more.

Our hats off to these two generals!! Mabuhay kayo!
