Both the judges and the audience were in for a pleasant surprise that the handsome lad who walked on the center of the stage has a very good singing voice to boot. Markki Stroem (also spelled “Strøm”), a complete package as he is, is 22 years old and was born to a Filipina mother and a Norwegian father. Markki is into writing songs and playing the piano. He went to an international school in Manila but finished his college education in Switzerland.
Marcello Angelo Ledesma Stroem, or Markki, was among the frontrunners of ABC 5’s Philippine Idol in 2006 but he left the show due to his parents’ decision to send him to the Glion Institute of Higher Education in Switzerland to finish his education. Now he’s back and ready to conquer showbiz with Pilipinas Got Talent as his vehicle to stardom.
