David Foster gave 10-year-old Eleana Gabunada a standing ovation and his Golden Buzzer after she gave a rousing rendition of the classic Barbara Streisand’s “Rain on My Parade.”
“There’s a lot of people much older than you that could sing that song, but they don’t understand the genre…but somehow at age 10, you understand your mission, and you understand your job and there’s no doubt in my mind that if you want to be on Broadway one day, you will,” David Foster exclaimed.
Anggun was equally floored by her performance, proclaiming that Eleana performed like a “baby Streisand”.
“I think you’re the only act that made David stand up,” Jay Park added.
Eleana grew up listening to David Foster’s music and she was definitely thrilled to receive a Golden Buzzer from him.
The Golden Buzzer will send Eleana Gabunada straight to the Semi-Finals in March where she will have a shot at the USD100,000 grand prize and the winning title.
