Another Filipina-American singer is aiming to make a name in the 'The Voice US' this year.
Gaby Borromeo auditioned with Leona Lewis' "Happy". The singer began with a soft and soothing voice that did get a couple of nods of approval from the four judges. However, it wasn't until she got to the song's chorus that she was able to get the Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine and country singer Blake Shelton to turn around for her. She even got a standing ovation from the two.
After Gaby's performance, Adam quickly went up onstage to give the singer a hug. The band vocalist told Gaby: "I'm very surprised that this was not a four-chair turn."
Adam, however, also pointed out Gaby's nervousness at the beginning of the song, "Correct me if I'm wrong but when you started singing you seemed like you were nervous."
"But then as the song progressed, you came through in a way that just blew my mind. You're unbelievable and you belong on my team," Adam tried convincing her.
The country singer also showered Gaby with praises, even agreeing with his rival coach Adam about Gaby's chances on winning. "It would be a shame to see somebody screw that up for you," Blake said referring to Adam.
At the end, Gaby can only choose one coach and ended up with Adam.
She expressed her joy over the success of her blind audition through Twitter. After a few netizens said that she is Filipino, Gaby quickly said that she is proud to represent the country.
Gaby is not the only Filipina-American teen who had succeeded in making it through the blind auditions. Anatolia Villaranda has also secured a spot in the show.
