WATCH | Pia Wurtzbach belts out Whitney Houston classic for Marlon Stockinger
Looks like Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is dead serious about returning to showbiz.
In a recent interview with InterAksyon, Pia said she wants to revive her entertainment career and explore her acting skills. Judging from a video uploaded over the weekend on Instagram by boyfriend Marlon Stockinger, acting is not the only thing she is setting her sights on.
In what looks like a private one-on-one karaoke session with her beau, Pia shows that she can also give performing divas like Rihanna, Beyonce and Lady Gaga a good run for their money.
Wearing a sexy crimson cocktail dress, Pia literally lets her hair down and delivers a spirited performance of Whitney Houston’s 1987 dance smash, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” with moves that would have the late, great African-American singer proud.
Although Pia’s special number was obviously intended for an audience of one—specifically for Marlon’s eyes only, the race car driver knows a winning form when he sees one. And he simply could not pass up the opportunity to share the “music video” he took with the rest of the world.
Since Marlon posted Pia’s karaoke video last Saturday, it has generated over 317,000 views.
Even though she has already relinquished her Miss Universe crown to successor Iris Mittenaere of France, Pia has remained visible in the public eye. She recently visited Tondo as part of her support to the international organization Hope 4 Change and its advocacy to help provide free education for impoverished children.
Pia will also appear as a special guest judge on “Asia’s Next Top Model” which premieres on Star World this April.
