I’ve been following The Voice of the Philippines for the last few weeks now, which I’ve been watching with a group of girls from our dorm. We watch the show for the performances, and for the judges (let’s just say that Lea Salonga seems to be enjoying the same “special beverage” that Blake Shelton partakes of in the US edition) – but it wasn’t until recently that I remembered the other good reason why I started watching the show.
He makes angry music too:
But if you ask me, his stuff is more powerful in Filipino.
Bamboo, the band, has been defunct for years now – if you ask me, it was probably for the better, since their final album had none of the snap that made his pre-2008 output so interesting. Now that he’s on The Voice, though, I’ve been inspired to seek out his solo material, which would probably get some getting used for a while. For now, we girls would have to content ourselves with learning how to sing in time for the next season – you know, just in case we get him to turn his chair. Or not.
