Ilonggo guitarist Galeno ‘Rock’ Opong got three coaches to turn and watch his performance in the blind auditions of The Voice Kids Philippines on Sunday, July 12.
The 8-year-old boy wonder from Lapaz, Iloilo City amazed coaches Lea, Bamboo, and Sarah as he sang “No Good in Goodbye” by The Script. He got standing ovation from the coaches.
“I like this kid so much already. Now I’m really in love with you…Tindig mo palang parang naka-attach na sa yo ang gitara mo e, hindi mo tinitignan, na parang napaka-natural lang,” Lea said.
“Grabe ka Rock. Napatayo ako sa galing mo e. Lahat, yung face mo, kung paano ka tumayo, kung paano ka tumugtog ng gitara, kung paano ka kumanta sa mikropono na ‘yan, professional na professional. Para kang maliit na matanda e,” Sarah gushed.
“Ikaw yung pinaka-cool na nakita ko ngayon e,” Bamboo added.
Rock eventually chose Coach Sarah to be his mentor. Watch Rock Opong in a video uploaded in Youtube by ABS-CBN:
