MANILA – Replacing Kapamilya singer-actress Sarah Geronimo, Megastar Sharon Cuneta is the latest addition to the upcoming third season of ‘The Voice Kids Philippines’ as one of the competition’s coaches.
“Sobrang excited ako (I’m so excited)!… One of the first surprises I have for you is I will be part of ‘The Voice Kids,’ with, of course, Bamboo and Lea Salonga and I can’t wait to be with them and to be with the kids and to be with you every week,” Sharon says in an ABS-CBN News report.
“I have been hibernating. I’ve been in hiding because I have been working on myself para i–surprise kayo (to surprise you)… Hindi pa ako tapos (I’m not yet done) but I have lost a lot of weight, preparing for something really big,” she adds, hinting that she has another project in the works this year.
Prior to The Voice Kids, the Megastar has been one of “Your Face Sounds Familiar” judges in its two editions.
No more Coach Sarah
Although still open to the possibility of returning as a coach in the program’s future seasons, Sarah opts to take a break from the contest for the meantime and work on other projects.
“Sasabihin ko lang na gusto ko lang pong bumalik sa ASAP, talagang ‘yung mag–concentrate naman sa growth ko bilang artist. Kasi I feel na bilang coach, parang lagi ko nga pong sinasabi na role-playing talaga ‘yung pagiging coach,” she has said in another ABS-CBN report earlier released.
(I just want to say that I just want to return to ASAP, to really concentrate on my growth as an artist this time. Because I feel that as a coach, it’s like I’m always saying that being a coach is like role-playing.)
“‘Yung para bang alam ko lahat. Kapag nagbibigay ako ng opinion, para bang ang galing–galing ko. Medyo naghe–hesitate pa rin po ako doon,” she admitted.
(It’s like I know everything. When I give an opinion, it’s like I’m a great performer. I’m kind of hesitant about that.)
The Popstar Princess has been one of The Voice Kids coaches in its past two editions.
“Sobrang masaya [talaga] and fun ‘yung experience, especially doing it with the kids. ‘Yun talaga ang the best. Baka po next season [bumalik ako]. Why not? Kung gusto pa rin nila ako maging coach,” she said in a different report.
(The experience is really fun, especially doing it with kids. That’s really the best part of it. I may return in the next season. Why not? If they still want me to be a coach that time.)
