A chance to follow your dream and perform in front of the entire nation—this is what I Can See Your Voice and Tawag ng Tanghalan offer to Filipinos from all walks of life. Although what I Can See Your Voice is an unconventional program as far as singing contests go, the added suspense of spotting the SEE-ngers from the SEE-ntunados has proven to be an interesting thrill for every Kapamilya. Aside from the P25,000 cash prize, the show also gives chosen SEE-ngers a chance to battle it out with others in It’s Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan.
