A few seconds into Mitoy Yonting's blind audition on The Voice PH, Lea Salonga immediately turned her chair. And why not? Mitoy's birit of the Didith Reyes classic, 'Bakit Ako Mahihiya?' was amazing!
It was almost near the end of Mitoy Yonting's blind audition when another judge finally turned his chair - Bamboo Manalac. The two other The Voice PH judges - Sarah Geronimo and Apl.de.Ap - passed.
Lea and Bamboo eventually battled it out convincing Mitoy to join their teams. At first, many of us watching though Yonting would choose Bamboo. But after praising his idol, Mitoy chose to join Team Lea.
"'Yung respeto ko kay Sir Bamboo, ubod taas, parang saranggola 'yan, mataas na mataas ang paglipad. Pero patawarin mo ko, kuya. Pipiliin ko si Ms. Lea."
Mitoy thus joins four others who have previously joined the team of Lea Salonga - ex-Kulay singer Radha Tinsay, OFW band singer Chien Berbana, indie music producer Darryl Shy, and teacher Taw Muhammad. ©Adobo Talk PH
