Pinoy Singer in Austria: Vincent Bueno

He is the pure-blooded Pinoy who won in the “Musical! Die show” of Austria last January. And just recently, he also became the first Filipino to share the limelight with big-name celebrities such as Sharon Stone, Elton John, and Kim Cattral at the Life Ball event in Austria. His name is Vincent Bueno, another Filipino pride.

Here’s the news article from ABS-CBN news:

Not only did Bueno walk the red carpet at Life Ball as one of the 4,000 guests which included big-name stars, he also opened Europe’s biggest AIDS charity event on May 17th.
Amid thundering applause from around 45,000 spectators in front of the prestigious, historical and famous City Hall of Vienna called the Rathausplatz, Bueno opened the show singing "Vienna Calling", a song popularized by the very first Austrian rocker Falco.

Donning an all-silver space cowboy costume, Bueno gyrated and did his trademark backflips to the delight of the attendees who came from all over the world and paid 200 euros (13,500 pesos) to support the charity event.

Even the lensmen had a good time taking shots of the energetic Bueno.

Throughout the night, nobody could be prouder for the young Bueno than his uncle, King, who was also the first Filipino to be given full accreditation for the event.
The older Bueno gained unlimited access and was free to shoot footage of all events from the rehearsals to the red carpet, backstage, the dressing room and the parties.
In some of his footage, King even asked some international celebrities to shout "Hello! The Filipino Channel" and "Mabuhay Philippines."
