Young Filipino-British singing sensation Charlie Green recently showed former President Joseph Estrada he's got talent.

In an interview with abs-cbnNEWS.com, Margaux Salcedo, spokeswoman of Estrada, said the singing encounter of Green and Estrada took place in the latter's house at Polk Street in San Juan last Sunday.

Green, the young boy who wowed the British when he joined UK's popular talent search "Britain's Got Talent" this year, went to Estrada and performed for the former president and the rest of his family.

He also had a duet with the country's 13th president as they sang the classic kundiman, "Dahil Sa Iyo."
 
Also present during the special event were members of Estrada's family, including his wife, Luisa, and son, Senator Jinggoy Estrada.

Accompanying Green was his British father Roger, who also sang at the event, and Filipina mother, Cecile Sumargo, who is a family friend of the Estradas.

"The mom is an old friend and she paid a courtesy call to the president with Charlie," Salcedo said.

Green is in Manila promoting his self-titled debut album under Star Records via mall shows.
