MANILA - Antonetthe Tismo, the young girl who sings to sell rice cakes, is the first members of Sharon Cuneta's team to move on to the Sing Off round on "The Voice Kids."
Tismo, along with teammates Misha de Leon and Patricia Medalla, performed "I Turn To You," earning a standing ovation from their coach.
Both Lea Salonga and Bamboo Mañalac picked Tismo as the group's best performer.
Cuneta, who became emotional while announcing her decision, also went with Tismo.
"I'm so proud of you. Magaling na kayo nung blinds, pero lalo kayong gumaling. Tapos nung nagtayuan na lahat ng tao, I'm so proud, proud," she said, before announcing her choice.
Prior to her audition, Tismo's singing talent already made the rounds online, when, in 2014, a customer asked her to sing in exchange for buying her rice cakes.
"The Voice Kids," hosted by Luis Manzano, Robi Domingo, and Kim Chiu, airs Saturdays after "Home Sweetie Home" and on Sundays after "Goin' Bulilit."
