MANILA — OPM singer KZ Tandingan turned emotional after a contestant sang with her father in "The Voice Kids Philippines" season 5.

In the show's Saturday episode, 10-year-old kid Zoe Quizol from Quezon City impressed Tandingan, along with Bamboo and Martin Nievera with her rendition of "Ano Kaya Ang Kapalaran."

After her performance, she sang "Ikaw At Ako" with her father making Tandingan look back on his journey with her own father. 

"Nung kumakanta kasi sila, I was brought back to those times na I could never sing with a live band. Feeling ko, I'm not good enough to play with other musicians," Tandingan recalled.

Tandingan said that her father was a good singer but being in the province hindered him from pursuing his dreams.

"But then, kahit 'yung tatay ko, he's a singer but he was never given the opportunity to reach for his dreams kasi back in the province being a singer is not considered being a career that could feed your family," the singer said. 

"When he saw me at three years old singing, he knew that I was special, sabi niya. And when I saw them singing, naalala ko lang na my dad would always sing with me just so I would have that courage to reach for my dream," she added.

This made her dedicate all her performances to her father noting that Quizol should be grateful to have a supportive parent.

"Every time I perform for me, I know that makes him happy but at the back of my mind I also know that it hurts him a little bit coz he's always reminded of the dream that he gave up for me and my family. So are so blessed that you have a dad who is so supportive," she said.

Quizol chose Tandingan making her the latest addition to Team Supreme while Nievera got three more artists: Krizel Mabalay, Jade Casildo, and Kendall Valerio.
