For Coach apl.de.ap, the personal sob stories of contestants of “The Voice of the Philippines” Season 2 are part of who they are – a reality that must be shared to inspire others.
The Fil-Am artist and one-fourth member of Grammy-winning group Black Eyed Peas shared this sentiment on “Aquino and Abunda Tonight” yesterday, Feb. 27, following fellow coach Lea Salonga’s comment on the same show that went, "For any of them (remaining artists) to make paawa at this point, it's cheap."
"For me, hindi po ito story, eh. That's reality,” he related. "It needs to be shared with people para maka-inspire ng ibang mahihirap [na tao]...”
As a coach, he reminds his artists – 19-year-old former sidewalk vendor Alisah Bonaobra as the last one standing in his team – why they’re doing what they’re doing to further motivate them.
“It doesn’t matter where you come from. With hard work and dedication, you can make it,” he said.
What makes artists more inspiring is not just how much passion they put onstage but also the story behind the person they’ve become.
“A story can inspire, a voice can inspire, but they have to go hand-in-hand,” he added.
Alisah will go head-to-head with Team Bamboo's Rence Rapanot, Team Apl's Alisah Bonaobra, Team Lea's Leah Patricia, and Team Sarah's Jason Dy in the two-part finale beginning tonight, Feb. 28.
