Her promise that “hindi ka magugutom” and dangling a team jacket to persuade the kids to join her was likewise laughable and endearing.
But her winningest quality was her accurate assessment of the auditionees, especially on Cebu’s John Paul Gumandoy, whose riveting and exceptional original rendition of Freddie Aguilar’s “Anak” made all the judges turn their seats. Though she was the last to turn, Sharon commented that he had a gifted voice that really made his rendition stand out amid a great number of versions of the OPM classic she has heard through the years both locally and internationally.
JP eventually chose Sharon as his coach. On “The Voice Kids,” Sharon indeed continues to win the hearts of many, and her chemistry with Lea and Bamboo really bodes well for the continuing success of the program, not to mention Kim Chiu’s late addition as a co-host, replacing Alex Gonzaga, and other impressive kid talents to watch in the program, including the other three-chair turners Yessha Calzada (who sang a gripping version of the Raymond Lauchengco hit “Saan Darating ang Umaga”),
Xylein Herrera (channeling Selah Sue by singing her hit “Raggamuffin”),
and Eleana Gabunada (who gave an impressive rendition of Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song”).
