Vote Eva & Kim Into the Round of Eight

IT'S DO- OR- DIE TONIGHT

It’s going to be a Do- or- Die Duel for Boholanos Kim Mainit and Eva De Los Santos as the Voice of the Philippines quest for the best-ever winner in the country continues on Sunday, September 15

Kim and Eva are two of the remaining eight singers who will slug it out for the last four spots

Eva is the homegrown talent from Jagna who despite having settled in Cebu City after her marriage to David De Los Santos has never forgotten her Boholano roots


Kim Mainit, on the other hand, is the bubbly teenager who dreams of musical stardom 

They have survived the long and arduous journey and tonight is the night as they await the ultimate judgement



RECAP

From more than a thousand who auditioned for the premiere season of ABS CBN’s The Voice of the Philippines, 52 hurdled the series of eliminations that culminated with the televised Blind Auditions

After the dust had settled down, the 52 were whittled down to the Top 24

During the August 25 and September 1 Live Shows held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila, televiewers and the live show audience were given the power to determine the Top Eight Qualifiers through text votes

The remaining eight who made the next round were picked by the coaches from the bottom 16

Last week, The first half of the Top 16 slugged it out for the Head- to- Head Single Knock out Eliminations.


Two artists from the respective teams of Apl de Ap, Sarah G, Lea and Bamboo faced off. This time, the viewing public and the coaches had the equal say, with the combined percentages of the public votes and the coaches’ scores determining who among them will remain in the competition.

This week, Boholanos will find out if our paisanos Kim Mainit and Eva De Los Santos will continue with their journey to musical stardom  

Admittedly, it’s going to be a tough battle for the two aspirants as each has been paired with formidable opponents

KIM VERSUS RADHA

Kim will face off with Radha Cuadrado  more popularly known as Radha, a Filipino singer and songwriter. She is the granddaughter of the legendary Filipino actress Lolita Rodriguez. She was an original member of the rap group Boom which later turned into a trio named Kulay. 

After leaving Kulay, she pursued a solo career and performed in theater and lounge shows. She had several stints on television and stage but her big break came at the age of fifteen when she joined as lead singer of the internationally acclaimed group Kulay, which won countless awards in the Philippines and went on an international tour all over the UK, Germany, Italy, and Denmark which put them on the dance charts in local UK radio and Billboard. 

In 1999 Pepsi Philippines launched their ad campaign called "Ask for more" and chose Kulay to be their endorsers.  

EVA VERSUS KLARISSE


It will be a Battle of the Divas as Eva try to outlast Klarissede Guzman, co- finalist of Sarah in 'Star for a Night' Sarah was tagged 'Popstar Princess' due to that show.

FOUR CHAIR TURNERS

Klarisse de Guzman is among the 4-chair turners of the Blind Auditions including Thor Dulay (Team Apl), Michaellen Temporada(Team Sarah), Don Michael Perez(Team Bamboo), Juvie Pelos (Team Lea) and Janice Javier(Team Apl).

It will be an uphill climb for both but our collective votes can help propel them into the Round of Eight

This is where our Boholano Text- Vote Power Will Come In! 

If we were able to help Jerome Sala of Pilar, Bohol clinch the Star in a Million singing competition, then anything is possible for both Eva & Kim

Help Eva & Kim realize their dreams in The Voice of The Philippines tonight!
