MANILA -- A young member of the Tigwahanon Manobo of Bukidnon is moving on to the Sing-Offs on the second season of "The Voice Kids."

In an episode aired Saturday, 11 year-old Reynan Dal-Anay performed Aegis' "Lupa" together with fellow "FamiLEA" members Angel Enerio and Rovelyn Marquesa.

Rocker Bamboo Mañalac named Dal-Anay as his choice.

"Pipili ako, kung sino...nagustuhan ko 'yung emosyon niya noong kumanta siya, si Reynan," he added.

Sarah Geronimo, on the other hand, chose Enerio as the best performer.

Their coach, Lea Salonga, praised the trio for their performance. She also chose Dal-Anay, who was consistent with his performances.

"Reynan, consistent 'yung performance mo, pero parang mas gumaling ka pa dahil sa emosyon na ibinigay mo, na talagang buong puso mo 'yung nilagay mo do'n," she added.

Dal-Anay is the last member to join Salonga's team to the Sing-Offs, along with Akisha Sianson, Esang de Torres, Jhyleanne Rington, Jonalyn Pepito and Luke Alford.

"The Voice Kids," which is hosted by Luis Manzano, Robi Domingo and Yeng Constantino, airs Saturdays at 6:45 p.m. and Sundays at 7:30 p.m.
