MANILA -- A nine-year-old musician from Tagbilaran City, Bohol made all the three coaches turn for him on Sunday's episode of "The Voice Kids Philippines."
Gian Ale sang Ed Sheeran's hit song "Thinking Out Loud," while playing the guitar.
"Masarap lang 'yung tapon mo eh, parang steady lang, very cool, hindi trying hard. Alam mo kung sino ka bilang artist," Lea Salonga told Ale.
"Pwede kang mag-ballad, pwede ka rin 'yung chill lang na parang nagkukwento lang. Pwede ka ring bumirit nang palaban," Sarah Geronimo added.
Bamboo Mañalac then joked that Geronimo was describing him, pointing out that Ale also plays the guitar.
"Parang ako 'yun, parang ganun, parang ako ang dinescribe mo eh. Oo, ganun, eksakto, tapos may gitara pa."
He then told Ale: "Gian, ang gusto ko sa boses mo, 'yung puso, very soulful, kung English. Soulful 'yung pagkanta mo. Natutunaw na kami."
Ale eventually chose to be part of Team Sarah, joining Zephanie Dimaranan and Kyle Echarri.
Both Salonga and Mañalac, meanwhile, each has two members. Reynan Dal-Anay and Bianca Marbella are both part of Team Lea, while Romeo Espino and Ataska Mercado are part of Kamp Kawayan.
"The Voice Kids," which is hosted by Robi Domingo and Yeng Constatino, airs Saturdays at 6:45 p.m. and on Sundays at 7:30 p.m.
