Katchry Jewel Golbin – more widely known by her stage name Aliènette Coldfire – is a singer from the Philippines. Born blind 28 years ago, she started singing from an early age. She became captivated by Edith Piaf and taught herself French online, through social media and by communicating with native speakers. After a recording of her singing Mariah Carey’s I’ll Be There went viral and armed with a passion for French culture and language, she took part in La France a un Incroyable Talent (France’s Got Talent) in 2016, placing third. Since then, she has kept busy and regularly performs a mixed repertoire of French and Filipino songs.
