The Voice of the Philippines: Myk Perez

Until now, I can’t still get over the fact that the winner of the The Voice of the Philippines is Mitoy. I’m not a bitter being here just like what’s happening right now regarding the throne of Miss World 2013. Yes! Obviously my bet is Myk Perez. Since the blind edition started, I was captured how he sang Jason Mraz's  I’m Yours. I was really speechless. I never thought another man could sing it better than Jason Mraz, himself. He sung it like he really owns the song plus the fact that he can get the attention of the audience effortless. That’s the strength of Myk, singing with heart and saying what the song meant through his soulful voice.

Don Michael Perez, popularly known as Myk Perez, is a freelance singer in Palawan before joining The Voice of the Philippines. He was the top four finalist of the said singing contest. He studied Conservatory of Music in University of Santo Tomas but because his mother had a cancer, he needed to give up his course and be back to Puerto Princesa, Palawan, his hometown, to study their.

To show my support during the competition, I even made an FB cover photo endorsing him. But in the end he still received the lowest votes in the competition against the three competitors.

These were some of the songs that Myk sang during the contest.
