I don’t know if I should still say this because the show finished months ago. But if you will ask me for me Darren Espanto should win the voice Kids Philippines. I saw all his performances from blind audition until the finals of the said show. And for me all his performances are consistent. Well, I should be happy already because he was a runner-up. For me the fact that he can sing and dance and with the looks, absolutely he is complete package, a total performer.
The last time I watched him was on Kris TV few days ago and I really admire his voice. The voice and the clarity of lyrics he’s really great. Even the host Kris Aquino and co-host Carmina Villarroel show their admiration to this young boy. Aside from Darren, R&B singer Jay R and Asia’s R&B princess Kyla were there. Both singers admire Darren and said everything was perfect with this boy.
Darren was born in Calgary, Canada with Filipino parents. Despite of living in English speaking country he speaks Filipino language fluently. That’s why he can sing both english and tagalog songs properly. Of well, Darren Espanto include me as one of your fans. I know there are many positive things would come your way. Good luck in everything and stay humble and for sure you will be blessed.

Last week The Voice Kids Philippines blind audition started
already. I was looking forward to this show but I was out when the show aired last Saturday, May 24. The second day it was aired on May 25, I was in the house so I made sure to see the blind audition. I enjoyed watching the kids they were really talented. I’m sure their parents are very proud of them. I would love to see my daughter competing or joining contest like this. Well, need to improve her singing first and of course confidence which is lacking on her.
Back to the show, The Voice Kids Philippines is airing on ABS-CBN every Saturdays and Sundays. The coaches of the show are Lea Salonga, Bamboo and Sarah Geronimo, and hosted by Luis Manzano and Alex Gonzaga.
I didn’t watch this girl named Darlene on blind audition and really amazed with her voice. Not to mention she’s only 10 and all the three coaches turned their chairs, wow! She performed Girl on Fire. If you haven’t watched her performance you should watch this video. Credit to the owner of this video.
