Zendee Rose Tenerefe, the ‘random girl’ who was spotted doing a mind-blowing performance of the song “And I‘m Telling You” outside an appliance store in a mall said she was in talks with the "Ellen DeGeneres" television show in the United States for a possible guest appearance.
 
In a report of host Arnold Clavio over GMA Network's “Saksi” newscast, Tenerefe said: “Kinocontact na po ako ng Ellen DeGeneres show po.”
 
“Sa YouTube po nagmessage po sila sa akin na magiwan daw po ako ng contact number at tsaka email dahil i-co-contact daw po nila ako as soon as possible,” she said.  
 
Tenerefe is now highly in demand as a guest on local shows.

Recently, she appeared in Party Pilipinas where she performed with Kapuso Stars Rachelle Ann Go, Maricris Garcia and Jonalyn Viray.

 

She first gained attention when a stranger who was capturing her mall performance of “And I’m Telling You” on video uploaded it on YouTube.
 
The video which showed Tenerefe wearing simple attire and a red bag while singing became viral.
 
Through the help of social media, the mall singing sensation who was dubbed the ‘random girl’ was identified as 21-year-old Zendee Rose Tenerefe from General Santos City.
 
She used to audition for reality singing contests and practices in malls in front of live audiences. - Andrei Medina, VVP, GMA News
