MANILA, Philippines--ABS-CBN’S “Pilipinas Got Talent” has created a new Internet sensation in the person of Jovit Baldivino, 16, a high school student from Marilag, Batangas, who sells siomai at the town plaza after classes to help his poor family.

His audition video, uploaded on YouTube, has registered 2.2 million hits as of Monday (1.6 million on Sunday—and counting). Journey’s “Faithfully” has found another voice! Was Arnel Pineda watching?

Yes, as a matter of fact, Jovit dreams of singing a duet with Arnel. This doesn’t seem like a long shot at all. Interviewed on “TV Patrol World,” Journey’s Pinoy front man said of his young sound-alike: “He has a really strong potential to become a rock singer. When I was 16, I didn’t sound as good as he does now.”
