Filipino sings Sweet Child O' Mine like Axl Rose in collaboration video

Pinoy singer Jerbert Forte joined forces with musicians from other countries, namely: Juan Ignacio Varela (lead guitar) and Francisco Ambrosis (rhythm) who are both from Argentina, Omur Can Kayaokay (bass) from Turkey, and Luis Musiera (drums) from Mexico, to come up with a great music video.

What's amazing is that the accompaniment and vocals were recorded in different locations yet the end product sounded like it was done in one studio.


YouTube user chichothedrummer uploaded the video in August 2010.

It only garnered 42,464 hits and 719 likes as of this posting. The numbers are quiet low for such a great video, probably because it has not gone viral as many Filipinos were not yet active on social media four years ago.

The uploader also did not elaborate in the description, saying only a couple sentences in Spanish: "This song needs no further introduction. I can only thank everyone for their participation and especially Vareela94 who coordinated and produced this titanic effort."

Coolbuster.net, RachFeed and Barako Newsline hope it will go viral this time to give this wonderful Filipino talent recognition.
