Filipino American Teen Makes Waves on The Voice

Anatalia Villaranda joins Team Keys on The Voice
A 16 year old Filipino American girl blew all the judges away after her remarkable blind audition on The Voice, a singing competition in the United States.
Anatalia Villaranda sang Bruno Mars’ “Runaway Baby” in the latest season of the show and received standing ovations from all four celebrity judges.

Her official audition video has garnered over 1 million views on YouTube and more than 6.2 million on Facebook, according to CNN Philippines.
Judges Alicia Keys and Blake Shelton were the first to turn their chairs for Villaranda, demonstrating that they wanted her to be on their mentor team in the competition. Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine followed suit shortly after.

The four judges each fought hard for Villaranda to pick them as her coach, but she ultimately chose Keys.
