MANILA - A young tattoo artist surprised the coaches with his unique voice, becoming the newest member of Bamboo's ''Kamp Kawayan'' in the second season of ''The Voice of the Philippines''.
Sean Oquendo, who hails from General Santos City, started doing tattoos on other people as a hobby, but he later decided to make money from it.
Despite his "rock star" looks, Oquendo noted he is not really into rock music.
On the show's episode on Saturday, Oquendo performed Zia Quizon's "Ako Na Lang", making Bamboo Mañalac turn his chair for him.
"Hindi lang ako sanay na kinakantahan ako nung kanta na 'yun ng lalaki, so kapag tumitingin ka sa akin, awkward moment. Maganda 'yung instrumento mo, I really like it, man. I think I have something special here, at 'yung personality mo, I like it. Welcome to Kamp Kawayan," Bamboo said.
"Nagulat ako sa look mo, tapos sa type of music mo. Galing. Ako, nagustuhan ko, kaya lang, meron akong ibang hinahanap," Sarah Geronimo said, explaining why she did not turn for Oquendo.
"Maganda kasi 'yung timbre ng boses, malamig, malamig pakinggan. Minsan nagsisintunado, here and there, in spots, pero alam ko nadadala din dahil sa matinding kaba," Lea Salonga said.
"You have a unique voice. You look like a rock star, and you got a rock icon to turn for you, so, good luck," apl.de.ap told Oquendo.
