Filipa wins RyanSeacrest.com cover contest

FilipaLast week I told you about 18-year-old Filipa, the young star from South Africa who caught the eye of Ryan Seacrest’s team when she covered One Direction’s, Story of My Life. The competition saw hundreds of hopefuls vying for the title of best cover. Round by round the numbers were narrowed down and last week, Filipa became one of seven competing for the title. Well here’s a development for you…. SHE WON THE WHOLE DAMN THING!!!!

She beat out X-Factor UK’s twins Jedward (who placed second) and X-Factor US finalist Josh Levi (who placed third), among others to take top honours. The news was announced yesterday and here’s what the young starlet had to say:

“Winning this competition has been the highlight of my career so far and to have the support from the media and public both in South Africa and overseas has been mind blowing,” said Filipa.

What’s next for her? Well winning a competition like this, which was set up by an entertainment mogul like Ryan Seacrest one thing’s for sure… the stars are the limit for Filipa. I can’t wait to see more!
