Eight More Contestants Chosen During LA VOZ KIDS Blind Auditions
La Voz Kids Coaches Prince Royce, Roberto Tapia and Natalia Jimenez chose another eight kids from California, Florida, Nevada, Texas and Puerto Rico during last night's second Blind Audition show. The eight talented contestants will now join the first eight young singers from the highly-rated premiere, which reached close to 3.5 million total viewers, as the Coaches continue their search during next Sunday's episode, when additional kids come with a dream to become a future music star.
With only 90 seconds to impress the Coaches with their voice, last night episode was full of excitement, where kids had the power to choose their Coach when they all pressed their buttons, and two Californian brothers entered the music competition. At the end of the Blind Auditions, each team will have 18 contestants who will participate in the Battle Rounds, leading to the ultimate selection of the "La Voz Kids" second season winner.
PRINCE ROYCE added three voices to #TeamRoyce, which now has six members:
· YAREL PADILLA, 13 years old from Ensenada, Puerto Rico. The young singer who likes Bachata was clearly overwhelmed when Prince Royce finally turned his chair just before the end of his performance. He feels fortunate to participate in the competition, since due to a serious problem with his vocal cords; he was not able to sing for some time. He conquered the odds thanks to the support of his family, especially his grandmother.
· DANIELA RAMOS, 11 years old, from Hallandale Beach, Florida. She likes to sing pop music and her biggest influence is her brother, with whom she shares the love of music. With just 30 seconds left to finish her performance, the three coaches turned simultaneously, and she chose Royce.
· ANGELITO GARCIA, 7 years old from Rowland Heights, California. The Regional Mexican singer came with his older brother Luis. He states that when he sings, the girls go crazy! All three coaches loved the emotion in his voice, but Prince Royce was the only one to press his button and took the young contestant to his team.
ROBERTO TAPIA chose two impressive female voices for #TeamTapia, now with five members:
· APRIL CISNEROS, 8 years old from Las Vegas, Nevada. The cheerful Regional Mexican singer who has been singing since she was only one-years-old was the first to perform and got a standing OVATION from the Coaches. April commented that if she wins, it would be as if her father would have also won, because his dream was to become a famous singer. While Natalia likened her voice, Tapia won her over.
· RUBY SAAVEDRA, 11 years old from Rosenberg, Texas. The Regional Mexican singer comes from a musical family and received a standing OVATION from all three coaches. Though Natalia was the first one to press the button, after a very heated battle among the Coaches, she joined #TeamTapia.
NATALIA JIMENEZ added three singers to # TeamNatalia, now with five members in her team:
· DANIELLE RUBIO, 12 years old from Rolling Hills, California. The young singer, who is proud of her Mexican roots lives with her grandparents, and is passionate about "Jaripeo" (singing on a horse). She caused another fierce battle between the Coaches.
· LUIS GARCIA, 14 years old from Rowland Heights, California. He loves Regional Mexican music just like his little brother Angelito Garcia (#TeamRoyce). Prince Royce and Natalia both turned during his performance, but he opted for Natalia.
· JAITZA GONZALEZ, 14 years old from Arecibo, Puerto Rico. The girl who loves Tropical music and believes that music has power and gives life, couldn't hold back tears at the end of her emotional performance, conquering Tapia's heart. She got all three Coaches on their feet, but after singing with Natalia, she became part or her team.
The "La Voz Kids" Coaches continue their search during next Sunday's Blind Auditions, when a new group of young voices battle for their dreams to become The Voice of the future on the hit Telemundo music competition.
