Filipina singer Bella Santiago has secured a spot in the Final 4 on “X Factor Romania.”

The Caviteña sang Celine Dion’s hit song “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” for the first Live Show. For the second round of semis, the 29-year-old singer belted out “Hora Din Moldova” by Moldovan singer Nelly Ciobanu.

Bella advanced on strength of audience votes. She needs the same support, if not more, until the last week of Season 8 of
“The X Factor” for her to be able to take home the cash prize of 100,000 euros.

And if she wins? Bea would be first-ever Filipina to do so on the show.

It was just last months when Bella started making a name for herself after her version of Bonnie Tyler’s 1983 hit “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” and “Rolling In The Deep” got raves.

Her performances have all been uploaded on YouTube. As of writing, her videos of “Bang Bang,” which has two versions, garnered 2,137,257 and 4,575,871 views respectively. Her “Rolling In The Deep” has had 1,914,167; “Cine Iubește Si Lasă,” 323,913; “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now,” 261,737; and “Hora Din Moldova,” 173,378.
