MANILA—A young artist who has been part of several local musical productions will be starting a new journey on "The Voice Teens 2."
Fourteen-year-old Ericka Peralejo, who was part of "Annie the Musical" and "Matilda the Musical," performed "Pahiram ng Isang Kanta."
Lea Salonga, whose daughter, Nicole Chien, was also part of "Matilda," recognized Peralejo after she turned.
"I'm going to remind you of something that I remember you saying, and you said something, ito na yata 'yung pinaka-last na palabas ko bilang bata. It was you...That struck me. Ano kaya 'yung susunod na gagawin nitong batang ito?" Salonga said.
"I'm happy that the next thing was this. I couldn't forget that."
Peralejo is the third member of Salonga's team.
