How 'The Voice' coach Lea will choose recruits

by Miguel Dumaual, ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 02/20/2013 9:10 PM | Updated as of 02/20/2013 9:10 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- Lea Salonga promises to be brutally honest with her stable of recruits in the Philippine edition of the reality singing contest "The Voice."

As early as now, the Tony Award-winning performer is setting her own rules in forming "Team Lea" when "The Voice of the Philippines" kicks off its Blind Auditions in the second quarter of the year.

"Gusto ko 'yung apinadong singer, 'yung hindi sila masisintunado. Iyon 'yung isa sa mga pinaka-ayaw ko na singer," said Salonga, who announced her part in the Kapamilya program as a coach on Tuesday.

"If the singer for the most part is on-key and on-pitch, it just makes it easier for everybody, easier for me as a coach. I cannot teach being in tune to anybody. You either are or you're not," she said.

As in the United States version of the show -- which featured as coaches Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine for its first three seasons -- the local edition of "The Voice" will have four teams battling it out.

In order to form their teams, the coaches will hold the Blind Auditions, where their backs are turned to the contestants. Only the voice will be the determining factor in prompting the coaches to push their button, turning their chair around, to signal their intention to recruit the contestant.

The 41-year-old Filipina singer, whose 35-year career has taken her to the international stage, said another simple criterion she will use in forming her team is whether a performance "makes my ears happy."

"You'll allow for a little bit of imperfection here and there as far as their intonation, pero kasi sanay ako na kahit ano pang mangyari, kailangang 'yung tenga ng audience masaya... If my ears are happy, [that will help me in choosing]," she said.

No sugarcoating

Asked whether she intends to gather contestants who identify with a specific genre for Team Lea, Salonga said she prefers to have a variety of singing hopefuls to claim "The Voice" title.

"I'd like to think that it's not just one thing or one type of music that I'll be able to help out with. It's really  more of what that person has. I'll be impressed by whoever, and it will be fun to have a very varied team," she said.

Once with a complete line-up of recruits, Salonga said she does not intend to sugarcoat her comments and critiques to help her team improve.

"What you'll get from me as a coach is honesty. I'm honest, and ayoko na kasi na inaasukal ko lahat ng sasabihin ko sa magiging ka-team ko, kasi ayoko namang sabihing anggaling mo kung hindi naman totoo, ayoko nang ganoon," she said.

"Hindi rin naman gagaling 'yung contestant, 'yung iko-coach ko kung hindi ako magiging totoo sa kanya, so I have to be honest with this person. If there's something na kulang, kailangan mo ring sabihin," she said.

Joining Salonga as coaches in "The Voice of the Philippines" are singer-actress Sarah Geronimo and former Rivermaya and Bamboo frontman Francisco "Bamboo" Mañalac. One last coach has yet to be introduced.

Hosted by Toni Gonzaga, "The Voice of the Philippines" is currently holding auditions in time for its premiere telecast later this year on ABS-CBN.

Aspiring contestants can audition online until February 19 by logging on to thevoice.abs-cbn.com.

On-ground auditions will also be held in Bacolod, Iloilo, Tacloban, and Cebu on February 23; General Santos, Zamboanga, Cagayan De Oro, and Davao on March 2; and in Palawan, Laoag, Naga, Legazpi, Baguio, Dagupan, and Manila on March 9.

Lea pinuri-puri sa Ragtime

“It’s official: I am a coach on THE VOICE OF THE PHILIPPINES! I wonder who coach #4 will be?’’ Tweet kahapon ng international singer na si Lea Salonga.

Dito sa PSN unang lumabas kahapon ang balitang isa sa uupong coach sa local version ng reality singing contest na The Voice of the Philippines si Ms. Lea kasama sina Sarah Geronimo at Bamboo na nauna nang kinumpirma ng ABS-CBN.

Kahapon ay nag-trend si Lea sa Twitter. Ang isyu bukod sa kanyang pag-upo as coach sa The Voice of the Philippines ay ang tinanggap niyang papuri sa kanyang performance sa musical na Ragtime na ginanap sa Ave­ry Fisher Hall para sa 15th anniversary ng original na Broadway production.

Isa sa mabilis na kumalat na review kahapon ay ang lumabas sa Playbill.com. “Salonga was in pristine voice, filling the auditorium during the first trio Goodbye, My Love/Journey On, and she received the biggest ovation of the night for her show-stopping 11-o’clock number Back to Before. Her voice and committed performance (after less than two weeks of rehearsal) can only leave us hoping that Ahrens and Flaherty will consider writing a musical for the talented actress who has been absent from the Broadway stage for too long.’’

Kaya naman mabilis siyang pinag-usapan.

Tuwang-tuwa si Lea. “I cannot believe it’s over... it’s actually over!!! Ragtime was such a blessing, I think it’ll be a while before I finally find myself on earth. The cast, the orchestra, the choir... if there was such a dream as this, I’m only too glad to have been in some way a part of it. Thank you, Stafford Arima, for coming to me in the darkened Old Globe theater and asking me to be part of such an incredible night,” sabi niya sa kanyang Facebook account.

Lea Salonga Joins Sarah Geronimo and Bamboo as One of the Coaches of 'The Voices of the Philippines!'

Published : 10:16 PM Author : Rocky


After conquering the world with her topnotch musical talent and artistry, Broadway diva Lea Salonga soon returns to Philippine TV as one of the coaches in the highly-anticipated singing competition The Voice of the Philippines.

“What you’ll get from me as a coach is honesty besides a Tony award and 35 years of experience,” Lea shared in a TV plug aired by ABS-CBN on Wednesday (Feb 20).

Lea, who started as a child stage actress and singer before becoming a Tony-award winning Broadway star in Miss Saigon, will sit in one of the swiveling chairs together with Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo and Rock Superstar Bamboo and will also form a team of contestants whom she will mentor and train so that one of them will hopefully be named the first ever “The Voice of the Philippines.”

“In the blind auditions, we would only use our ears and listen to the contestants. I want in my team singers who are pitch perfect. I don’t want them singing off key. I cannot teach being in tune to somebody—either you are or you are not. If you’re not, I’ll just say goodbye to you… I believe that there are lots of talented people out there,” Lea added.

Who will be part of Team Lea? And who is the fourth and last coach?  Watch out for The Voice of the Philippines coming soon on ABS-CBN.(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

Lea, original celebrity coach ng The Voice
Ambet Nabus
www.hatawtabloid.com

ACTUALLY, dapat ay mas unang inilabas ang name ni Lea Salonga bilang isa sa judges ng The Voice of the Philippines. ‘Yun nga lang, may something stipulation pala ito bilang kumanta naman ng theme ng isang singing search din sa TV5.

Kumbaga naghintay lang daw silang mag-go ang naturang show bago nila inilabas ang name ni Lea bilang isa sa mga official na judge na kasama nga nina Sarah Geronimo at Bamboo.

“Siya naman talaga ang orig na dapat na unang ini-announce pero may ilang technicality lang na tinapos at nirespeto kaya ngayon lang siya officially na-isapubliko,”  sey ng aming source.

So Mareh, sa tindi ng mga uupong judges (at bago sila in fairness) sa The Voice of the Philippines, dapat lang na maging world-class talaga ang madiskubre nilang mga singer dito.

I also think she might be the TOUGHEST judge of talent since she seems to expecting more from contestants.
