MANILA – Filipino-Canadian Martina Luis tried her luck in “The Voice Kids,” travelling to the Philippines from Toronto, Canada to audition in the singing competition’s second season.

Martina sang Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire” and managed to turn coach Bamboo Mañalac’s chair.

“The tone, the power, the presence ng vocals mo were there, telling me na marami akong puwedeng ibato sa iyo na kanta and I think you can do it. We have to clean few things, but with me as your coach, oh the places we shall go,” Bamboo said, feeling Martina’s ‘connection’ to the song.

(The tone, the power, the presence of your vocals were there, telling me that I can throw a lot of songs at you and I think you can do it. We have to clean few things, but with me as your coach, oh the places we shall go.)

Martina will then be joining Altair Aguelo, Romeo Espino, Lance Karl Macalinao, Atascha Mercado and Christian Pasno in Team Kawayan, making her the sixth member.

Meanwhile, coach Leah Salonga has five kids in her team while coach Sara Geronimo has eight members.

“The Voice Kids” is shown every Saturday at 6:45 p.m. and Sunday at 7:30 p.m.
