Pinay, 13, wins The Voice Kids UK 2020; takes home P1.9-million


A thirteen-year-old Filipino was crowned as The Voice Kids UK 2020 champion. 

Justine Afante fell on her knees, covering her face after she was announced as the winner of the singing competition. 

Afante is taking home £30,000 or about P1.9-million. She won against George Elliot, Dara Mcnicholl, and 7-year-old Victoria Alsina who is also a Filipina. 

“I’m so, so, so, proud of you. You worked so, so, so, hard. The proof is in the pudding,” Pixie Lott, her coach, said. 

Afante belted Beyonce’s ‘Listen.’ All of the finalists receive a dream holiday to Orlando, Florida.
