Nabela Gudito is now the defending champion of It’s Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan. She is a half-Indian half-Filipina and she is an insurance agent from Bohol.
According to her introductory video, her mother and daughter is her ticket in achieving her dreams. She realized that there is a need for an insurance when her mother got sick. She did not just get an insurance, she also sells an insurance. It supports their needs, her mother and her child. She supported her child alone since her child was only 1 month old. She said that it’s not easy to be a single mom but the joy that she is receiving can’t be compared to others. She applied her learnings from selling insurance to her singing career. She makes sure that the listener will understand the emotion of the song. If she wins the Tawag ng Tanghalan, she’ll save the money for her daughter’s studies to make sure that her daughter will have a brighter future.
