Jason Dy, 25 year old crooner from Butuan City, proved in winning “The Voice of the Philippines: Season 2 , that one need not belt out ” furiously” Â like Regine Velasquez or Jed Madela to be No 1. “World Class talentâ€. The voice of today- that should be heard all over the world” -gushed his coach Sarah Geronimo, whose popularity, doubtless, also helped Jason win the fans’ votes. Sarah is thus the winningest coach in town: Â with wards Jason and Lyka (Voice Kids) while Leah Salonga had Mitoy for Season 1. An only child raised by a single mother who works in Singapore, Jason Dy, got in the audition through Sam Smith’s “Stay with Me” and the finals with the easy “Minsan Kitang Iibigin”.P2-M cash, house and lot , P1-M business package and a recording contract- is a long way for the former “haranista” and voice model from Mindanao. Go, Jason. March 4, meantime, was sad news -with the death of Youtube sensation, 28 year old Jam Sebastian -after a painful bout with lung cancer (Quit, you smokers). Together with his engaged-partner Michelle Ligguyu, the “Jamich” Youtube duo on “love” -had 100 million followers. The good die young?
Jason reigns; Jam dies
