Armed with her ukelele and unique voice, Senator Gringo Honasan’s daughter, Kai Honasan, made all four chairs turn during her Blind Auditions on The Voice PH 2.
The 25-year-old classical pianist performed Katy Perry’s hit song, “Teenage Dream” which impressed all four judges Lea Salonga, Sarah Geronimo, Bamboo and Apl.de.Ap.
Here are some of the judges’ thoughts on her performance:
“Yung song na ‘yan kasi, napaka-familiar sa lahat nang mga nandito ngayon. So, you sat there with a ukulele, and it was just perfection. Maganda eh, malamig, malamig pakinggan. ‘Yung boses mo, masarap sa tenga. So sana ‘yung team ko ‘yung piliin mo.” – Lea Salonga
“Kai, I just want to say, your voice is, there’s nobody like it. I like you to be on my team.” – Apl.de.Ap
“Kai, ‘yung klase ng style, hindi the usual na bumibirit, powerful ‘yung voice, pero, ‘yun ‘yung kailangan natin eh. Gusto kong yakapin ‘yung chance na ‘yun na i-angat ka naman, ‘yung mga artist na tulad mo. Sana bigyan mo ako ng chance.” – Sarah Geronimo
“Who has been crazy enough, brave enough, to bring artists like yourself forward to battles, forward to the semis. People say, ‘Hindi ‘to bumabagay, it doesn’t fit sort of a spectrum.’ Sa akin, it doesn’t matter. Ako, it’s about artistry, it’s about growth over prize. Ako lang, I think I’ll be a good coach, right, Dad?” – Bamboo .
Kai eventually picked Bamboo as her coach adding that she feels she and Bamboo came from the same world.
