Coach Apl.de.Ap turned his chair right before Mark Angelo Avila‘s song ended during the Blind Auditions in The Voice of the Philippines.
The 19-year-old artist who dedicated his performance for his momther impressed Coach Apl with his rendition of John Legend’s “Ordinary People”.
“Napansin ko na nerbyoso ka nang konti, pero I took the chance. You know there’s of room to grow, and I would like to provide that for you. I like the dedication, that you’re doing it for your mom. I had to leave my mom at an early age, ’cause I want to do it for my mom. Welcome to Team Apl,” apl.de.ap said.
Avila is the eighth member of Team Apl, joining Ernaflor Tosco, Alisah Bonaobra, Bradley Holmes, Jannet Cadayona, Mark Cando, Meredita Quiachon, and Samantha Felizco.
