MANILA – A Filipina singer has made it through the blind auditions of the ninth season of “The Voice” in the United States.
The audition of 26-year-old Amy Vachal, who is based in Brooklyn, New York, was aired on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). She performed the classic “Dream A Little Dream of Me.”
Although only three out of four coaches turned for her — Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams — even Adam Levine agreed that Vachal is an exceptional talent.
“My team is full. Otherwise, I would have turned around first because not only am I sad that I didn’t get to turn around for you but you could win this whole thing,” Levine said.
Shelton even compared Vachal to Norah Jones and Colbie Caillat. “Thank you for bringing what you do in our show. I’m so impressed,” he said.
As for Stefani, she vowed to help Vachal in her journey on “The Voice” should she choose to join her team.
Williams, for his part, said Vachal could pick any team but he “would be unbelievably appreciative to have the opportunity to aid you in this journey.”
Eventually, Vachal decided to join Team Pharrell. On Facebook, she shared how honored she feels now that Williams is now her coach.
According to reports from Cebu media, Vachall is the niece of Cebu Representative Gwendolyn Garcia.
