MANILA — After her recent performance in “The Voice Kids,” the 9-year-old Lyca Gairanod of Team Sarah drew comparisons to the country’s Super Star, Nora Aunor.
“Parang ang naalala ko pag nagpe-perform ka ay si Nora Aunor (I remember Nora Aunor everytime you perform.),” said coach Lea Salonga to Gairanod.
“Small but terrible na maganda ang boses. Ito ang nagustuhan ko sa iyo, simpleng simple lang ang pagkanta mo, wala ka masyadong ginagawa sa katawan mo pero talagang napakasimple at diretso. ‘Yun ang gusto ko,” she added.
(Small but terrible and a beautiful voice. That’s what I liked about you. You sing so simply; you don’t do too much body movements but you sing in a direct and simple manner. That’s what I like.)
Adding that Gairanod performed like a superstar, Geronimo also praised the child’s performance.
“You’re like a superstar. Naglalaro-laro, daldal-daldal diyan pero pag nagre-rehearse na tayo, ibang klase ang focus mo, (You play and talk but when we rehearse, your focus is incredible.)” she said.
Gairanod performed “Isang Lahi,” in a Sing off with other members of Sarah Geronimo’s team including Isaac Zamjudio and Lee Mercelino.
The “little super star” will be competing with Darren Espanto, Gab Gomez, Diana Agustin, and 2 others yet to be announced on the show’s Sing Offs.
