MANILA -- Rainier Acosta, a 29-year-old band vocalist from Bulacan, joined the team of Broadway actress Lea Salonga on Sunday’s episode of “The Voice of the Philippines.”

Acosta sang the OPM classic “Muli,” recorded by his “lolo” Rodel Naval. “Bata pa po ako ‘yun na ‘yung naririnig ko, ‘yung mga kanta niya,” Acosta said.

“Ang hinahanap ko kasi ‘yung linis ng delivery,” Salonga said. “Palagay ko marami tayong matututunan sa isa’t isa.”

After the audition, Salonga added: “I got lucky that day, I got somebody na OPM ‘yung primary influence niya.” -- "The Voice of the Philippines," July 14, 2013
