MANILA—"Team Sarah" member and Bicol native Adah Leosala, 11, moved to Manila to seek greener pastures.
On Saturday, she shared the message of her journey during her "The Voice Kids" performance in the sing-off round, taking on Jennifer Hudson's "I Am Changing" off the "Dreamgirls" movie soundtrack.
Adah said she chose that song to mirror her "biggest sacrifice": transferring to the city with her mom in search of opportunities.
"May expression sa likod ng pagbibirit niya . . . Kailangan may something sa likod ng kakantahing nota," contest judge Lea Salonga commented.
Prior to her blind audition for "The Voice Kids," Leosala previously shared that she was about to give up on auditioning for Star Hunt, ABS-CBN's audition event for all its shows, for financial reasons until a fan offered to help shoulder her expenses while she was in the city.
