Top-rating singing competition â€œThe Voice Kidsâ€ 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) on ABS-CBN.
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.
â€œOur Top 4 last season was pretty crazy. Itâ€™s like, where do we go from here? Now, weâ€™re turning for special kids who have immense potential for improvement. Our standard is pretty much the same â€“ 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,â€ 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. â€œIâ€™ll try. I canâ€™t control things but Iâ€™ll try my best. Thatâ€™s my goal â€“ 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.â€
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. â€œItâ€™s my first time to coach here. Every one all over the world knows â€˜The Voice.â€™ 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. Iâ€™ll really give it all Iâ€™ve got â€“ my 38 years of experience.â€
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.
â€œSo far we have found some amazing, talented boys and girls. Theyâ€™re not just vocally wonderful but theyâ€™ve got some really interesting personalities, which have been entertaining for all of us,â€ shared coach Lea.
The chemistry among the three coaches is also evident in their banter.
â€œI 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. Itâ€™s a great to be working with two super pros, experts, and icons. I am so honored to be in such great company,â€ Sharon said.
â€œIt feels great. It feels at home. Ang sarap ng pakiramdam especially with these kids I got recently. Itâ€™s been great and fun so far working with Sharon. Itâ€™s fun for me because itâ€™s something different. Itâ€™s a change, and change is always good,â€ added Bamboo.
Meanwhile, the third season of â€œThe Voice Kidsâ€ will be led by the countryâ€™s premier host Luis Manzano, reality star-turned-host Robi Domingo, and the newest addition to the family: â€œchinita princessâ€ Kim Chiu.
As they join forces, they will guide every young artist in every stage of the competition to help them achieve their dreams.
Donâ€™t miss the premiere of â€œThe Voice Kidsâ€ Season 3 this Saturday (May 28) on ABS-CBN.
