Top-rating singing competition “The Voice Kids” is back to give young singers a shot at stardom and help them achieve their dreams for their family as another season begins on Saturday (May 28) worldwide via The Filipino Channel (TFC) worldwide.
In its third season, the best singing competition for kids will again try to search for the next singing superstar with the help of its superstar coaches: Broadway Diva Lea Salonga, rock superstar Bamboo, and new coach Megastar Sharon Cuneta.
“Our Top 4 last season was pretty crazy. It’s like, where do we go from here? Now, we’re turning for special kids who have immense potential for improvement. Our standard is pretty much the same – you got to have something we can absolutely work with and we have to be able to see that you have the potential to be the champion of this competition,” said coach Lea.
Coach Bamboo, meanwhile, will try to score a back-to-back win after her artist Elha Nympha was named grand champion last season. “I’ll try. I can’t control things but I’ll try my best. That’s my goal – to pull out the best from every child and see which of them reaches the finals. Here in the country, we have a lot of great singers. But a kid or an adult who can connect, that has a heart and character, is rare.”
But Sharon is not letting the two coaches get their way easily, as she is ready to pull out all the stops for the competition. “It’s my first time to coach here. Everyone all over the world knows ‘The Voice.’ It is prestigious. Just to be part of this family gives you a lot of extra points. I am praying that the champ comes from my camp. I’ll really give it all I’ve got – my 38 years of experience.”
This Saturday, the blind auditions – the first part of the competition – will kick off with the coaches using new tricks to try to woo young artists to join their respective teams.
“So far we have found some amazing, talented boys and girls. They’re not just vocally wonderful but they’ve got some really interesting personalities, which have been entertaining for all of us,” shared coach Lea.
The chemistry among the three coaches is also evident in their banter.
“I am so grateful to God for the chemistry. There was no way to find out if there was such a thing among us until we started taping. It seems like the audience laugh a lot, we laugh a lot, we have a lot of fun bantering. It’s a great to be working with two super pros, experts, and icons. I am so honored to be in such great company,” Sharon said.
“It feels great. It feels at home. Ang sarap ng pakiramdam especially with these kids I got recently. It’s been great and fun so far working with Sharon. It’s fun for me because it’s something different. It’s a change, and change is always good,” added Bamboo.
Meanwhile, the third season of “The Voice Kids” will be led by the country’s premier host Luis Manzano, reality star-turned-host Robi Domingo, and the newest addition to the family, “chinita princess” Kim Chiu.
As they join forces, they will guide every young artist in every stage of the competition to help them achieve their dreams.
