Mitoy Yonting gets the highest public vote


090413-mitoy_main.jpgOn Star Patrol on September 2, Mario Dumawal featured The Voice of the Philippines’ OFW singer Mitoy Yonting of Team Lea.

Mitoy got the highest text vote of 82% from his concert-like rendition of Queen’s classic rock  “Don’t Stop Me Now.” The Voice of the Philippines Live Show was held last September 1 at the Newport Theatre, Resorts World.

Mitoy, according to the report, doesn’t think that he is already the winner. “Hindi ako nagho-hold back pero hindi rin ako nagre-relax kasi alam ko anytime, kumbaga sa boxing ‘pag di ka dumipensa, matamaan ka ng isa. Win or lose [gusto ko] ma-express ko sa tao na singer/performer ako talaga.”

Another top contender is another OFW singer, Janice Javier of Team Apl who earned a standing ovation from all four judges with her powerful performance of “I Believe I Can Fly.”
