The Ellen show highlights the next in a line of Filipino Youtube favorites

Ellen's Newest Favorite Filipinos: Aldrich and James

The massively popular The Ellen Show has been featuring the newest talent across all forms of media.  Since 2008, it seems that Ellen has had a penchant for Filipino talent.  Filipino artists ranging from the superstar Charice to the duo Rin on the Rox to the passionate Kai Langer seem to strike a soft sport in the talk show mogul's heart.

This time she's adding the youtube guitar/singig pair Aldrich Lloyd Talonding & James Walter Bucong, whose acoustic rendition of Luther Vandross' "Dance with My Father" already was surging through the YouTube ranks.  After appearing on the Ellen show, the Gen. Santos-based duo received $10,000 and a new keyboard.  

Who's next on Ellen's Filipino talent radar? Wait a week or so.
