Thanks to his portrayal of Kristoff on Kadenang Ginto, Kyle Echarri has gained popularity and was even officially launched as a member of Star Circle Batch 2019. Before all of this, however, he made his television debut on The Voice Kids Season two. It was his singing potential that kicked off his career in show business.

Now, we are further testing his virtuosity with this Digital Guess the Song Challenge! The rules are simple—he has 30 seconds to guess the title of the hit song based a snippet. The catch is that there is no music and he will have to rely solely on an artificial voice reading the lyrics. Trust us, it is easier said than done.

Shawn Mendes’ “Treat You Better” was a no-brainer. He immediately recognized the Canadian singer’s 2016 chart-topper. He also scored a point with Daniel Ceaser and H.E.R.’s “Best Part,” then gave an impromptu performance to celebrate. Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings,” on the other hand, took a while. He knew the artist was Ari and even sang along. But he fell short because he could not remember the title. “I don’t like Ariana Grande too much, that’s why I don’t know the name of her song,” he explained. Eventually, he was able to jog his memory.
He also had to guess Justin Bieber’s “Cold Water.” “I got it at first and then nawawala,” he confessed with a laugh. The Kapamilya singer swears he knows the lyrics but ended up passing on this collaboration between JB and Major Lazer.
Last but certainly not least was Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.” If there was one song Kyle had to get, it was this one. This was the first ever cover he uploaded on his YouTube channel which has over 440 thousand subscriptions. The video itself has over 141 thousand views since being shared back in 24 June 2015.
