Partners belt it out onstage for IM The Voice 2014
While everyone settled down to enjoy a sumptuous dinner, 10 representatives from different companies battled onstage for the title of IM The Voice 2014 Grand Champion. Singing hit songs from Katy Perry’s “Roar” to Heart’s “Alone”. One male contestant even dished out a smashing rendition of Randy Santiago’s “Hindi Magbabago”, the talented performers belted it out just like in the hit television show “The Voice”.
Faced with so much talent the judges had a difficult time scoring the contestants, but eventually the winners were announced, with Laarni of Microphase bagging the grand prize. Following in close range were Asineth of CTI and Christine of Villman.
