Rita Martinez, 30 years old from Pasig is an artist who came from a business-minded family. They had a printing company business run by her father. Rita was surprised by host Luis Manzano during his visitation on the whereabouts of their business. It was her father who turned over the red envelop they have received from the host. Rita was carried away by her emotion when she saw the envelope.
Rita’s motivation in joining the Blind Auditions of The Voice PH was herself. She wanted to prove a lot of things that she could do since she believed lesbians like her are usually discriminated. Rita admitted that she was struggling for being a lesbian but she wanted to overcome them.
She performed the song “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns and Roses and Coach Bamboo was convinced. Since he was the only coach who turned his chair, Rita belonged to Team Kawayan. Bamboo was so happy that the artist went to his team. The rock icon was amazed of her clear delivery of the lyrics of the song.
Coach Apl.de.ap was looking for the growl in the song since it was a song from one of the most popular rock bands in history. We are looking forward to seeing Rita perform again on the next episodes of The Voice PH Season 2.
