We were on our way home from Cocina Centrale grand opening while "The Voice" was being aired on TV. I wanted to be home early to watch the show because Mitoy Yonting was one of the auditionees that day. Unfortunately, the departure time from Pampanga was delayed. Anyways, I knew that I could watch the show online anytime I want anyway. Luckily, a blogger who was seated next to me had his mobile TV on and I was able to watch and listen to all the auditionees as if I was one of the coaches in this blind audition. My sister who is also a fan of "The Voice" sent me updates of the show via SMS too.
Immediately, Lea Salonga turned her chair after a few seconds of Mitoy's audition. Bamboo, later turned his chair too. Lea was overwhelmed of Mitoy's voice and cursed in a way that she was carried away and showed how she admired Mitoy's voice by which she described as a "laser." The two coaches convinced Mitoy to be in their own team but in the end, Lea won. Mitoy now belongs to #TeamLea.
Yonting is a member of local band, Drayber's Band and performed with his own rendition of Didith Reyes', "Bakit ako Mahihiya." during the audition.
As of this posting, his performance on YouTube already earned 200k++ views and counting.
