"My Way" lyrics

And now, the end is near

And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and ev'ry highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few

But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do , I saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew

When I bit off more than I could chew
And through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried

I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way,
"Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way"

For what is a man, what has he got?

If not himself, then he has naught
The right to say the things he feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!

Filipino Caregiver Rose Fostanes Wins 'X Factor Israel' Sings Winners Song "My Way"

Pinay Rose Fostanes came to Israel several years ago to work as a caregiver. Now, Rose Fostanes is a bona fide reality TV star in her host country Israel, after she was declared the winner of the "X Factor Israel" Tuesday, January 14 (Wednesday, January 15 in Manila).

Fostanes' younger sister, Nancy, and long-time partner, Mel Adel, were brought to Israel by the show and were present during the finals night.

After she entered the top 3 following the elimination of the group Fusion, Fostanes also sang the Alicia Keys hit song, "If I Ain't Got You," with her mentor Shiri Maimon.

"Thank you so much for those Israeli who like my voice...thank you for giving me the chance to be in the X Factor Israel," Fostanes said after she won. She also thanked the thousands of Filipinos who supported her.  

"I love you, I'm so proud of you," said Maimon.

Placing second was a young female singer, Eden Ben Zaken, who was mentored by rock singer, Rami Fortis.

Osang, as she is fondly called by close friends, continues to be an inspiration to many, particularly overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

Many OFWs in Israel voted for her, and thousands expressed their support for her via social media.

"Thank you for giving me the chance to be in the 'X Factor Israel,'" the 47-year-old overseas Filipino worker turned singing sensation said. She was part of the show's "Over 25s" category.

Placing second was Eden Ben Zaken (Girls category), and third was Ori Shakiv (Boys category).

She has been one of the favorites to win the reality show's first season, with performances regularly lauded by the show's judges.

For the final showdown, she sang "My Way" by Frank Sinatra, and Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You" in a duet with her mentor Shiri Maimon.

Her rendition of "My Way," with an orchestra as her backup, got a standing ovation from the judges: rock singer Rami Fortis, singer and composer Moshe Peretz, pop singer Ivri Lider, and Maimon.

Fostanes was once part of a faceless crowd of foreign workers who clean homes and tend to Israel's sick and elderly.

But her success and shot to stardom drew much surprise.

Belting out hit songs by the likes of pop stars Queen and Christina Aguilera, Fostanes surprised Israeli viewers and swept the judges of the Israeli X-Factor off their feet with her soulful renditions and swinging beat.

Fostanes said the show had turned her world upside down.

"Being in the X-Factor really changed my life because before I had a very low self-esteem and now I got a good confidence for myself and I got friends and people love me on the street and I got many compliments from them, good compliments," she told Reuters.

There are about 20,000 Filipinos working legally in Israel, according to the Central Bureau of Statistics, with most working as cleaners and caretakers for the elderly and disabled.

So much so in fact, that in Israel the word "Filipino" is often considered synonymous with "caregiver".  

Fostanes, 47, said she has been working for about 20 years across the Middle East, and came to work in Israel four years ago.

She had always wanted to be a professional singer, and the Israeli X-Factor, she said, gave her a final shot at a dream she hoped could inspire others.

"Being in this competition, I think I that I am, how do you say this, I will be a leader for them because of what I did," she said, referring to her compatriots and fellow caregivers.

"I think also they will be proud of me, and they will be - and everybody in the world will know that Filipinos, even working as a cleaner, or whatever a foreign worker can also share their talents and they can also be a part of a big event like this," she added.

At first, Fostanes said, she thought Israelis would not vote for a foreign worker and that she would be an underdog in the competition, in which viewers and a panel of judges comprised of four Israeli musicians determine at different stages which contender moves up and which gets dropped.

But, to her surprise, the votes, cast via text messages or on the show's website, kept on coming in, and have catapulted Fostanes to celebrity status in Israel.

"I think she made an amazing journey here in Israel and I think the Israeli people gave her so much strength, and now she believes in herself," she told Reuters Television.

"She knows that she can be a singer, she needs to stand on a stage, to perform, that's what she needs to do and hopefully she is going to be one of the best singers in Israel," she added.

Fostanes told Reuters there were still things she needed to return to even after winning the competition.

"But I have to go back to my work as a caregiver," she said. Fostanes has been compared to Scottish singer Susan Boyle, 52, who shot to fame in 2009 after appearing on the TV show "Britain's Got Talent" and performing a flawless rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from the musical "Les Miserables."
