‘Birit’ singing always wins?
Josie Sulit, graduate student: “While watching ‘The Voice of the Philippines,’ I realized the sad truth that the high-decibel, birit-style singing always wins. Whatever happened to shading and subtlety? Are we giving the wrong impression that, if you hit the highest notes, you’re automatically a great singer?”
Stella Bungcasan, housewife: “Judy Ann Santos continues to be a major draw on TV with her current teleserye, ‘Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala.’
“Although there’s no news yet of a new film project, we expect her to come up with a well-thought-out one—unlike her Manila film fest entry last year with Vic Sotto, which proved to be underwhelming.”
Art Vicente, student: “While GMA talent, Bianca King, registers well in film and on television, and shows promise as a serious dramatic actress, her less-than-pleasant speaking voice seems to be a problem. I hope she and her handlers can do something about this.”
