Israel Alano from Batangas emerged as the daily winner of "Tawag ng Tanghalan" on "It's Showtime" on Monday.
The 33-year-old Alano wowed judges Nyoy Volante, Rey Valera, Karla Estrada, Yeng Constantino and Karylle with his cover of AfterImage's "Mangarap Ka."
Alano beat out three other contestants, as well as defending champion Michelle Jean Arcain from Davao del Sur, who won in last Saturday's kick-off.
“It’s Showtime” started the year with a bang with the grand comeback of the classic singing contest that gave rise to Nora Aunor, Pepe Pimentel and Bobot Mortiz. With its return, “Tawag ng Tanghalan” once again calls for new talents from Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao, and Metro Manila to find the country’s next singing superstar.
