Aria Clemente 'Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko' ukelele cover (video)

Filipina teen singer Aria Clemente has captured the hearts of netizens with her ukelele cover of the 1970's hit "Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko."


Her video has received over 70,000 hits on YouTube so far. In it, the 19-year-old performs the all-time favorite ballad which was written by singer-composer Rey Valera for Sharon Cuneta in 1977.

She looks very young in the video. We found out that this was recorded two years ago and was re-uploaded after the original was deleted when her account was hacked, apparently.

If our info digging was right, Aria won the 2007 junior singer World Championships of the Arts (WCOPA) award in Hollywood in Los Angeles, California, when she was still twelve.

She joined the talent show Little Big Star in the same year but got eliminated. The multi-talented artist played the role of Jin Jin in the hit television series Mara Clara starring Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes.

According to a Wikipedia entry, Aria is currently studying Fine Arts and Design major in Interior Design at the University of Santo Tomas (UST).

Here's Aria Clemente's ukelele cover of "Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko," which was featured on ABS-CBN's morning show Umagang Kay Ganda (UKG) on Tuesday, March 10.
