CNorte's Sangguniang Panlalawigan lauds Mercy Abaño for her success in "It's Showtime"

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Camarines Norte was quick to adopt a resolution commending Mercedita "Mercy" Abaño of Daet.

Co-authored by Hon. Arthur Michael Canlas and Vice Governor Jonah Pimentel, the resolution seeks to hail the success of Abaño. Said performer won the daily and weekly rounds of Stars on 45 in It's Showtime.

Last January 2, she bested the other contestants when she belted "Big Girls Don't Cry."

Again she wowed the crowds with her vivacious rendition of  Tina Turner's "Disco Inferno"and Rihanna's "Shut Up & Drive" last January 4. She claimed the top spot during the weekly finals.

The sixty-year-old performer is a voice coach and a dance teacher.

During the '90's Abaño used to be a backup singer for Filipino pop icon Hadji Alejandro. In fact, she was picked to be one of the back up vocals for Alejandro's "Kay Ganda ng Ating Musika."

After winning the weekly finals, the Bicolana pride will advance to the next round and will continue in her quest to be a star.

The segment "Stars on 45" seeks to discover new talents aged 45 and above.
