MYK PEREZ – TEAM BAMBOO
This 22-year-old singer from Puerto Princesa, Palawan was a student at UST’s Conversatory of Music, but gave up his education to help in the expenses of his mother’s treatment for cancer.
Perez turned four chairs in the Blind Auditions with the Jason Mraz hit “I’m Yours,” which gave a preview of his unique twist in taking up popular songs going into the competition.
For the Battle Rounds, he was paired up with John Philip Duka to perform a mash-up of “Hey Jude” and “Come Together.” Combining songs, as the show unfolded, became Perez’s strength to win the approval of his coach and the public.
The former music student made waves in the Live Shows, first with a mash-up of “California Gurls” and “Isn’t She Lovely?”, followed by the Adele hit “Chasing Pavements,” and most recently, “Change the World” and “Baby, I Love Your Way” for his semi-finals bid.
