MANILA, Philippines – Team Sarah’s artists have fought on “The Voice Philippines” during The Battle Round on Saturday, December 6, 2014 with Daniel Ombao and Jason James as they performed Boyz II Men hit “On Bended Knee.”
Coach Lea and Apl were impressed by Jason while Bamboo chose Daniel as the best among the paired artists.
With all due respect, part of being a good vocalist is being able to vary existing pieces of music to create a good performance. Style is rarely “built into” a song or a piece of music. It’s all about the instrumentation; the performance. Imagine how much changing the tempo, for instance, would affect the performance.
I think it’s great — and really, really pleasant — when someone sings a song they can truly connect with and the emotions flow very naturally. However, it is hard to sustain putting out more music if one can’t perform songs that may not be quite as personal.
Coach Sarah announced Jason as the winner in the battle round. He will move up to the next round of the competition – the Knockout rounds.
