'The Voice Kids': Meet the final 4
MANILA, Philippines - From hundreds of kids who auditioned, it's down to 4, and they are set to sing their hearts out during the finals weekend of The Voice Kids on Saturday, July 26, and Sunday July 27.
For the youngsters, it's been a busy week of rehearsals for the grand finale, so let's get to know the four contestants from the teams of Lea Salonga, Bamboo, and Sarah Geronimo who will battle it out in the competition.
Lyca Gairanod, 9 years old is from Team Sarah. Hailing from Cavite, Lyca wowed the audience with her rendition of "Pangarap na Bituin," during the semifinals. Will she win the competition?
Darlene Vibares, 10 years old from Antipolo City, is a member of Team Lea. A first-timer in singing contests, Darlene’s vocal chops have impressed the judges, but will her powerful voice be enough to win the title?
Darren Espanto is also from Team Sarah. Hailing from Calgary, Canada, Darren can speak Filipino very well since it is the language commonly used in their home. During the semifinals of the competition, he sang "One Moment In Time," which got a big round of applause from the crowd. For the sing-offs, he sang "Listen."
Juan Karlos Labajo, 13 years old, is the oldest among the final 4 and is from Team Bamboo. During the blind auditions, he sang "Grow Old With You," which wowed the judges. But will his versatility in singing classic songs be enough to win the competition?
All four finalists will perform Saturday July 26, with the winner to be announced on Sunday July 27. Voting mechanics will be announced during the show.
