Nantita Khumpiramon: Contestant becomes a web sensation after revealing true gender while singing a duet in 'Thailand's Got Talent'
Nantita Khumpiramon, 27-year old contestant at "Thailand's Got Talent", has become a web sensation after she revealed her true gender as he performed a duet - going seamlessly from a delicate soprano to a masculine tenor midway through a song.
The judges — Nirut Sirijanya, Pornchita ‘Benz’ Na Songkhla and TV producer Pinyo Rutham - were all amazed by the song.

At first, this seemed like a novelty act. "Initially, I was certain that you were a transexual, but once you began singing, I was fooled to think that you were female. After you started the male verse, I should have trusted my gut feeling," said one of the judges. But after all three judges put the transgender contestant through to the next round, Nantita's storyline became truly moving.
"[Kids] always made fun of me....And my dad never accepted me for who I am," the 27-year-old confessed. "The worst, he once beat me badly. He tried to beat me until I quit being gay.
"I want to tell my dad, I love you--and I finally made it now," Nantita ultimately declared.Source: new.music.yahoo.com
